Great fun for party treats or for packaging small gifts!
Approximate Time: 15 minutes
Cut a piece of tissue paper or gift wrap paper large enough to wrap completely around the tube with enough extra paper at each end to tie with curling ribbon. (When placing the cardboard tube on the paper, leave a half-inch space between the rolls. This will make the breaking open of the popper easier for the recipient.) Secure the paper with a piece of tape.
Secure one end of the tube by twisting the paper and tying with a length of curling ribbon. Insert the treats (candy, small toys, stickers, etc. or small gift) and close the remaining end as directed above using the curling ribbon.If plain tissue paper is used, the outside can be decorated with stickers or a hand-drawn design. If making these for a party, simply place the poppers in a festive bowl. This can be used as a table centerpiece or "served"to guests at the proper time!

I thought this was very sweet, and thrifty. I was thinking about some more stuff to send to some kids I am making stuff for and this is perfect. THanks so much. I have all the items just need to get some filler, so this is very economical for me. Way to go!
