Create a pistachio-filled crepe paper cracker or a lollipop posy in a few quick steps. Other cute ideas: a dragee-stuffed envelope made from floral paper and sealed with a monogram, and a stamped box, with a ribbon pull, containing hard candies.


  • Lightweight pink crepe paper

  • Scissors

  • Heavyweight red crepe paper

  • 4 1/2-inch long cardboard tube

  • Double-sided tape

  • Raffia

  • Pistachios


  1. For the inner layer, make lengthwise accordion folds in 10-by-4-inch lightweight pink crepe paper; cut fringe on ends. For outer layer: Fold 12-by-8 1/2-inch heavyweight red crepe paper in half lengthwise. Cut ends into petal shapes (download our template).

  2. Center pink paper on red; place 4 1/2-inch-long cardboard tube on top. Roll papers tightly around the tube, affixing with double-sided tape. Tie one end with a raffia bow. Use a paper funnel to fill tube with pistachios; tie the other end. Fluff petals and fringe.
