diy: colorful party poppers

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Cottonelle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #CottonelleTarget  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

I always love a good crafty challenge, and finding a way to make something as ordinary as toilet paper into something pretty for a party was one I was totally up for.

Turns out it was easier than I thought...and I made the cardboard rolls into fun and colorful party poppers. {Based loosely on the July 4th rocket favors from Martha.}

To doll up your cardboard rolls into favors, you'll need:

empty toilet paper rolls
patterned paper {scrapbook, wrapping, or something you doodled yourself!}
glue gun or double sided tape
tissue paper or crepe paper sheets
surprises to go inside
confetti or tissue paper filler {optional}

Start by cutting a strip of paper wide enough to wrap around the roll. {approx. 4 1/4" x 6"}

Hot glue each end of the strip around the roll.

Then take a piece of tissue or crepe paper {appox. 6" x 12"} and fill it with treats.  

Tightly wrap the paper around the treats going inside the popper and secure it with a piece of tape.

Tie off each end with a piece of twine and slide it inside the cardboard roll.

Leave a popper on each guest's place setting or have a basket full for them to choose from themselves! Ready to head to Target for a package of Cottonelle?
