1. Roll white cardstock into a tube and adhere in place.

2. Pink the short edge of the tissue paper stack and wrap around the tube. Twist ends closed and secure with garland or pipe cleaners. *Note, you can fill your crackers with treats now, otherwise you can untwist the end to fill at a later time. A cracker snap and be inserted at this time, follow the instructions that come with your snaps.

3. Wrap tube with patterned paper and secure.

4. Stamp a festive design on an adhesive label and stick over the seam of the pattern paper.


You could whip up a couple dozen of these in an hour making them great for an advent calendar or a classroom treat. Have fun with this idea and make it your own! It would be cute for other occasions too so keep it in mind if you need a quick favor for a birthday party or other event. Happy crafting!
