~ Halloween Goody Tubes

This is an easy little papercraft to house Halloween (or any other holiday) treats in a compact patterned paper tube crimped at both ends.  (Thanks to Jacob for being my unwilling model!) 

Quick instructions:  Each tube is a 6″ x 6″ piece of patterned paper, rolled into a tube (overlap and strongly adhere the length of the tube).  Add adhesive to the inside of one end, flatten slightly and run through a crimper to give it some ooph.  Fill with candy, not too tightly or the tube will burst.  Add adhesive to the inside of the other end, flatten perpendicular to the opposite crimped end (so that the final shape looks kind of like those yogurt or fruit popsicles that pop out of their containers–you know what I mean!)  Add a stapled ribbon to the top and there you go!  Now, repeat this 30 times like I did!  Just kidding!

Stuff:  patterned paper – Little Yellow Bicycle; decorative staples – Fastenator; ribbon – Stampin’ Up!

  5. Hi Lea,

    I’m always poppin’ in to your site, but I never leave comments. Shame on me. I’ve even got a link to your blog on my blog.

    Anyway, I love this paper candy/treat holder. It’s fantastic. No Halloween in Israel, but we’ve got Purim and I will definitely be using this idea.

    I hope all is well with you. Take it easy and keep in touch.
