Green Gift Wrapping

Through HOPE Society, I will be doing "green gift wrapping" as a fundraiser at our huge local craft fair that we run every year right before Christmas.  This is my first attempt at this.  Sure I usually reuse old gift bags or wrap my presents with newspaper, but those are for people I know and know me.  Now I get to try to do it in a way that doesn't look... well cheap!
The Serendipity Sale (as it is called) isn't until November 30, but I'm getting in some practice and some prep.  Today, I'm making toilet paper rolls into pillow boxes.  
So I started by cutting the corners off, slightly rounded at the end. Then I painted them white.

A few more details and a gold string to tie it all together (pun intended) and voilá! A pillow box that looks like a birch log! I think it's cute.  Hope everyone else thinks so, too!
