Recycling Tissue Paper Roll to Favor boxes



This is another one of the recycling projects, made with cardboard tubes in the paper towel roll. You can find other project made out of paper towel rolls here.



These turned out really nice and its great for little favors. Just fill it up with little favor items like, candies, tattoos, crayons, etc.

You'll need:
--------------
- Cardboard tubes from the paper towel rolls.
- Dollies (You can use anything to decorate these little packets, ribbons, lace, twine, etc)
- Twine.

Steps:
-------
- Cut the cardboard tubes to the size you want your packets to be.



- At one end of the tube with your finger press the edge, so it makes a little dent, just like the picture below.


- And then close that end of the tube by making another dent just like the picture below.



- Using the open end of the tube, fill it up with goodies and close that end too, just like you closed the other end by making two dents.



- That's it. Now its time to decorate your little packets. I decorated mine by placing half a dolly and tying a twine around it. You can use ribbons, flowers or whatever you like to make it pretty..
