As we head into April (Earth Month), I wanted to share a fun way to upcycle small boxes into gift wrap. It’s a great way to show your kids how to repurpose things, reuse and waste less. Plus, it’s really fun and crafty to do. For this project, I used toothpaste boxes – something we all buy! Tom’s of Maine® Luminous White™ Toothpaste Clean Mint is the perfect “partner” for this fun project and it happens to be my favorite new toothpaste.

Luminous White™ has fast become a favorite in my routine. I love that it is safe for everyday use, safe on enamel and helps me get whiter teeth in 2 weeks.* Keeping with the Earth-friendly theme, it’s made up of biodegradable or mineral-derived ingredients, no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives and it’s gluten-free. Luminous White™ is Tom’s of Maine’s most advanced whitening toothpaste ever and a more natural approach for me!
This simple project and choice in toothpaste is a great, small step in finding ways to be more natural and intentional about brands and practices.
To get started, decide if you want to use your boxes as mini-bags (great for gift cards) or a long gift (perfect for jewelry!).
If making a mini-gift bag, start by carefully taking the box(es) apart and cut into half.
Use wrapping paper or contact paper, cover the printed side
Carefully cut the tabs and reassemble the boxes. You can use tape or glue to secure the bottom.
Tip: You can also paint the brown side of the box instead of using contact paper.
Add embellishments to your bag. I used a gold doily to create a pretty accent. But you can use glitter, gems, washi tape or just about anything you like! Kids love this project!
For the longer box, you’ll want to carefully unassemble the box and turn it inside out to get the brown side out. I used washi tape to accent my box, but you can paint dots, use a paint pen, dip in glitter, etc. Your creativity is the limit.
I hope this has inspired you to upcycle something ordinary into something extraordinary – having fun while doing it.
You can purchase Tom’s of Maine® Luminous White™ Toothpaste Clean Mint at Walmart – right in the toothpaste aisle! And don’t forget about the Ibotta offer!
