Flower-Wrapped Favors


Saying Welcome to Spring!

1. Fill a 3 5/8-inch-high acetate cylinder with candy. (*)

2. To make flower, cut a 9-by- 30-inch piece of tissue paper. Fold, accordion style, in 5-inch-wide layers. Cut petals in smaller end; unfold and lay on flat surface.

3. Place cylinder on paper with bottom about 1 inch from uncut end, and roll; tape sides and bottom with double-sided tape. Tie ribbon above top of cylinder.

4. Gently peel petals down to open flower. If you use a shorter cylinder, reduce height of paper; for a multicolored blossom, wrap a second layer of paper around cylinder after first is secure; secure with ribbon.

(*) You can use a toilet paper roll. Or a paper towel roll. These work great!! So fun and not costly. Very pretty.
