- 3 5/8-inch-high acetate cylinder
- 9-by-30-inch piece of tissue paper
- Double-sided tape
Fill a 3 5/8-inch-high acetate cylinder with candy.
To make flower, cut a 9-by-30-inch piece of tissue paper. Fold, accordion style, in 5-inch-wide layers. Cut petals in smaller end; unfold and lay on flat surface.
Place cylinder on paper with bottom about 1 inch from uncut end, and roll; tape sides and bottom with double-sided tape. Tie ribbon above top of cylinder.
Gently peel petals down to open flower. If you use a shorter cylinder, reduce height of paper; for a multicolored blossom, wrap a second layer of paper around cylinder after first is secure; secure with ribbon.
