Snowy Paper Tube Gift Pouch

Well, the Women of Grace girls loved their Scrabble Tile Necklaces that I gave them on Wednesday. I was looking for a way to package them for the girls without having to brave the crowds to get some little gift bags. So, I pulled out a saved paper towel tube and came up with this Snowy Paper Tube Gift Pouch.
I love it when I can repurpose something that is going to the trash anyway.
Here's what you need: paper towel tube, craft knife, white paint pen and ribbon.
Here's how you make it:
Simply cut the paper towel tube in half.
Using the paint pen, draw dots and snow flakes on the tube.
Fill it up with goodies and push in the ends. Wrap it up with a ribbon. These would also make cute little party favors. Five gifts done...time to wrap up a bunch more. I think I'll have to break out the Christmas paper for the others. We just started wrapping them up today. The kids are so excited to have presents under the tree finally. Now, I'll have to watch them to make sure there's no shaking or peeking going on. Do you have all your gifts wrapped and under the tree?
I'm linking up at some of these great parties and

  1. You're so clever! These are cute. All our presents are wrapped, but we still don't have our tree! Going to the tree farm tomorrow.

  2. Very cute! I have to see if I have anything small to wrap! You could also use toilet paper tubes and not even bother cutting them.

  4. What a great idea! I haven't even finished the gifts, much less wrapped them! Normally I am done a LONG time before this, but this year has not gone according to plan! Gotta go frost some cookies and then I can check one thing off my list...baking!!
