How to make a Toilet Paper Roll Unicorn Gift Box step by step instructions
Begin by painting your Toilet Paper Roll White and let dry. Alternatively you can wrap the toilet paper roll in white paper.
Pinch one end and staple shut.
Flatten the Toilet Paper Roll and cut a piece a BIT BIGGER than a square (so a little longer than it is wide).
Now twice the Toilet Paper Roll by 90 degrees and pinch the open end shut. This makes your basic Toilet Paper Roll pyramid shape. Before stapling it shut:
Fill with wrapped treats.
Cut a unicorn horn (I cut two and stuck them together so the horn looks nice from both sides).
Insert into the open side of the toilet paper roll. Pinch shut and staple in place.
The basic Unicorn Head is complete. Now it is time to decorate it.
Using a pink sharpie colour in the unicorn’s muzzle. Add eyes with a black pen, as well as nostrils.
Finally – I coloured a white strip of paper in a rainbow pattern, cut it out. coloured the other side (again so it looks nice from both sides) and glued it onto the back of the unicorn as a rainbow mane.
Your DIY Toilet Paper Roll Unicorn Gift Boxes are finished!
How fun are they?! Enjoy!!!!
