What to fill it up with for kids:

But really just think anything small and fun.

Step 1

Measure the length and width of the paper roll so you know how much paper to cut. It needs to fit around the roll with some overlap. Then cut the paper.

Step 2

Place the paper roll close to one end of the paper and glue that side so it sticks to the paper roll once you roll it. Now roll the paper roll until the edges of the wrapping paper overlap.

Step 3

Secure the ends with glue.


Step 4

Once the glue has dried, bend the tops of the roll enough so one side meets the other side.  (If the paper is flapping about, you may need to glue the ends to the paper rolls.)

Step 5

Add your choice of goodies inside. Once it’s filled, fold the other side over as in step 4.

Step 6

Now add the finishing touches to your party favour with cute decorations such as ribbon, gift tags, stickers, bows etc. Adorn with ribbon and add a gift tag, accompanying the theme.
