Party Crackers

This is a fun project that can be modified to fit any occasion. They make wonderful goodies for special trick or treaters!

For this project you will need the following:

1 empty toilet paper roll
1 6 1/2 X 12 sheet of designer paper
2 1/2 X 8 inch strips of coordinating paper
tag punch
ribbon, cord, scissors, adhesive

Cut the toilet paper roll across the middle almost in half. Leave about 1/2 to 1 inch connected. Fill the tube with candy, confetti, novelties, money, whatever!! (Don't forget to fill before wrapping!)

Wrap the 6 1/2 X 12 sheet of paper around the tube, so the paper sticks off the tube for the ends. In other words, the length of the tube and the length of the paper go the same direction.

Squish the ends closed and tie with the cord. You can skip the cord and just tie with ribbon but I find it easier to tie it with the cord first.

Wrap the thinner pieces of paper around the ends for accent.

Make a tag and embellish however you want and you are done!
