A big part of being eco-friendly is to reuse what you can. This has to be my favorite favor idea I’ve done so far. I have taken my love for creative favor making and my desire to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and combined them into these super cute wedding or holiday party favors. I have been saving our toilet paper rolls for quite awhile now because my idea was to make something cool out of them. There are tons of ideas online for making creative things out of toilet paper rolls, but I just haven’t got around to making anything yet. Then I thought of this idea! These rolls are perfect for putting small treats into and once you fold them up as I did here, they look like cute little pillow shapes. I found some festive looking wrapping paper to go around the rolls, tied on a color coordinating ribbon and attached a matching label and there you have it, a very inexpensive little capsule for you to fill with goodies for your guests!
This is how I did it:
First you wrap your TP roll with pretty paper and tape it on (the thinner the paper the easier it is to fold). Then fill with whatever treats you like.
Next, you fold in the edges like this…
Then embellish however you like! I chose to use the Swiss Dots Oval Labels in Periwinkle.
