  • 3 5/8-inch-high acetate cylinder

  • Candy

  • 9-by-30-inch piece of tissue paper

  • Scissors

  • Double-sided tape

  • Ribbon


  1. Fill a 3 5/8-inch-high acetate cylinder with candy.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
