  • Goody bags
  • Screw punch
  • Paper
  • Ribbon
  • Baker's Twine
  • Scisssors
  • Tape
  • Starburst craft punch


  1. Step 1

    Fold top of medium-size goody bag just below the lowest holes. Using screw punch, punch through all layers at upper holes. Fold a 6-by-6-inch square of paper into a triangle. Wrap around filled bag and punch aligning holes. Thread ribbon through holes from front to back, cross ends behind, and thread back to front.

  2. Step 2

    Cut a 12-by-12-inch paper into a circle, then in half. Roll from one corner to form a cone. Seal outside edge with double-sided tape. With small-tip screw punch, punch holes on either side. Insert knotted baker's twine through holes for ties.

  3. Step 3

    Cut a deep fringe along one edge of a 2-by-3-inch piece of food tissue paper. Roll up and tape at bottom, then insert into tip of hat.

  4. Step 4

    Stamp number on paper. Punch out with starburst craft punch. Cut a slightly larger circle shape from contrasting paper. Place foam dot between 2 circles and tape to hat.
