Introduction

Made of wrapped paper streamers, these adorable little bundles are a twist on the crepe-paper surprise ball. As you unwind the paper, you find the trinkets -- jewelry, a novelty, a toy. It's simple to grow a basketful and customize them for guests of any age. Display them as a centerpiece or leave them by the door as favors.
