I have been making these little containers for a long time, you make these as simple or as fancy as you want.


  • Card stock 4x5
  • Super sticky Glue
  • Paper Crimper
  • Treat
  • Embellishments

    Step 1:
    Cut your card stock 4"x5"
    Step 2:Apply sticky tape to the 4" reverse side of the paper as well as the middle of the bottom half and halfway on the top. As seen below.
    Step 3:Roll paper like a cylinder from 4" to 4". (Like a paper towel roll). Next adhere one side. Step 4:Fill with a treat, it could be candy, buttons for your crafting friends, ribbon, erasers.... etc....etc....
    Step 5:
    Close the other end in the opposite direction as seen below.
    Step 6: Crimp both sides and embellish!!!
    I used mine as ornaments that I can give to my guests. I punched a hole in the middle, added thread then ribbon and an embellishment.
I hope you enjoy making these with your family. Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions.
