Reused paper towel or wrapping paper tubes can be used to make pillow boxes accented with household items. Small items or candy can be placed in these adorable and easy to make treasures. I made the boxes shown above for a holiday charity event at a New York design house and each sold for $5 each.
These can easily be created by cutting the desired size of the tube and pressing in the ends to create a pillow box. Use yarn, buttons, fabric and anything else of interest to wrap around the tube and glue. Insert the gift and use tape to seal each end to secure.
