  8. Use scissors to cut each end of the tube so that it is rounded.
  9. Fold the rounded edges down to create flaps on each end of the tube. Insert a small gift or candies and fold down flaps on each end.
  10. Tie a ribbon around the tube lengthwise to hold down the flaps and tie the ribbon into a small bow to one side of the shamrock.
