Kraft Pillow Boxes by 'PrettyTape' on Etsy are a series of paper gift boxes that are both ecological and functional. Available for $3.85, these boxes lend themselves as a highly affordable and environmentally sustainable alternative to plastic and metal packaging.

The beauty behind this idea is a design that can be used for personal and commercial purposes. You can use these boxes to package anything from jewelry to dry food, each coming in a set of twelve. Each box is made from Kraft paper and can be decorated with stickers, ribbon and string.

Each box is featured in its natural brown color. There is no bleaching or augmenting involved other than folding the paper to create the box vessel. You can make these boxes look even more eco-friendly by tying twine around the sides.
