"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Christmas Tree Napkin Holder

Turn an old toilet paper roll into this stunning and festive Christmas Tree Napkin Holder.  Great for your holiday entertaining, this napkin holder is easy to make and budget-friendly.  Embellished with rosemary and a bright red bow, this festive recycled Christmas craft is a simple and easy way to bring the holiday spirit into your home.

Christmas Tree Napkin Holder


  • 1 toilet paper roll
  • Piece of thick craft paper, color: red, dimensions: 5.9 inches x 3.9 inches
  • Piece of satin red ribbon
  • Lacy paper design, color: white, dimensions: same as the red craft paper piece 
  • Rosemary (just a bit from the top part only)
  • Small golden stars (stickers)
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Glue



  1. Start by spreading the paper roll out.  To do this, you need to follow the seam and unglue it very carefully using your fingers.

  2. To continue, take your pencil and your ruler and draw a straight line connecting the tops of the opposite corners whose distance from each other is the shortest.  Then, count  0.78 inches from both sides of this first line your drew and draw two more straight lines, as shown in the second picture. All three lines should be parallel to each other.
  3. On the thick red craft paper, trace and cut out a triangle.  Then, take the white lacy paper and cut out another triangle, of the same dimensions as the previous one.
  4. After that, make a fold (upwards) on the two outer lines you’ve drawn before (do not make a fold on the middle one).  Glue corner tops a and c together.  Hold the glued tops with your fingers for a little while, till the glue hardens enough to keep them together.
  5. The red triangle you’ve cut before is for the back side of the Christmas Tree Napkin Holder.  and the lacy triangle is for the front side.  After gluing these triangles in place, wait for the glue to dry. Use your scissors trim both sides, if necessary.

  6. Tie the red ribbon into a bow around the rosemary, forming a small bouquet. Glue it on the front side of the napkin holder (onto the lacy paper).
  7. Add as many stars as you wish and your Christmas Tree Napkin Holder is ready.
