"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."

This is one of those projects where you think, "why didn't I think of that?" I always have tissue paper and of course, toilet paper rolls. Now I don't have to buy a gift card box anymore. I can decorate a box with something special for the person who is receiving the gift. You can different stamps at the dollar store. I like how the instructions promoted a product, which I have never heard of. But since I have a baby shower coming up I will buy the product because I could have used those drops when my son was a baby. Thank you!

These are super cute! Granted, you can't fit a very big gift in the tube, but you can put cash (a teenager's favorite), candy at Valentines or Halloween, or some small trinkets from the dollar store. I love the look of the gold polka dots. Polka dots are my thing right now!

I really love how easy it is to customize these gift boxes. You could even make them to decorate the tree, to use for stocking stuffer surprises, or to place in gift baskets for friends and family. I think this would be exciting to use to give someone several birthday gifts and hiding them around the house so that they had to hunt for each one. Great job recycling a household item!

I had to laugh when I seen this one, because my Husbands' Grandmother who was Amish used toilet paper tubes for her gifts of money and home made candy. We loved the home made gift tubes. I think I'll be doing this for the popcorn I make every year for Christmas but, I'll put it into plastic bags first.. Thank you for this free Toilet Paper Roll Gift Boxes idea. There are so many ways to decorate the tubes, I'm thinking of having the Grand kids decorate their own and saving them for Christmas gifts.. my mind is racing.. LOL Thank you!

Such cute packages made from such an unexpected product. I am searching high and low for projects to make with all of the cardboard tubes we have saved over the last couple of years. Trust me we have tons! I am pinning this one, so I don't forget. I can see doing this for just about every holiday now and as a place setting.
