DIY Gift | CREPE + LACE FAVOR CRACKERS
Cardboard tube about 4-5 inches long (paper towel rolls and wrapping paper tubes are good sources)
Double stick tape
Very sturdy thread or twine
1. Begin by cutting lace fabric and crepe paper into rectangles. The shortest side of the rectangle should be long enough to wrap around the tube - usually about 6-7 inches. The longest side should be the length of the cardboard tube plus an additional 6-8 inches. Once you've determined your dimensions write them down so all your favors will be uniform.
2. Wrap crepe paper and lace fabric around tube so that the lace fabric faces outward as shown. Secure with double stick tape. Then tie one end with twine. Fill with candy or other favor item and tie remaining edge closed.
3. Optional: Add stars or other adornments to all or a few of the favor crackers.
