Indian Corn Poppers
Add an element of surprise to this year's Thanksgiving table — these festive crackers are filled with post-turkey treats, which will be an especially big hit with the kids.

Cut up to three layers of yellow and brown tissue paper, measuring about 6-inches in length (enough to wrap around the cardboard tube), fringe the bottom ¾-inch, then trim ¾-inch above the fringe line.
Tape down a base of tissue around the cardboard tube, with some excess hanging off each end. Start taping down strips of yellow fringe, layering from the bottom to the top, with a 1-inch overlap. Cut a few squares from the brown fringe tissue and tape onto random sections of the yellow fringe to look like Indian corn.
With a piece of crepe paper about 12-inches-by-14-inches, trim the top and bottom long edges similar to the design on the provided template; this will create your cornhusk.
Wrap the crepe around the fringe tube, allowing a section of the tissue to show (you may need to fold in the edges of the husk). Fill with surprise treat of choice before tying off ends with twine.
