First thing you do is gather your papers. cut papers the length you need for the tube. apply Mod Podge to both outside of tube and back of paper. smooth air bubbles with a craft stick. Next, cover the two empty ribbon spools with paper the same way. on the bare sides where ribbon normally lays flat around the spool, you can Mod podge thin paper strip or ribbon around it. Let dry. sand edges if needed with emery board. Ink them if you like. Glue gun the ribbon spools together. Next Glue gun the tube on top of the tiered spool. Add ruffle ribbon around bare flat edges of spool as seen in the pic.
Most of the papers and products I used was from an older Line of K&Company and and older laser cut die cut, (USA). I gave it the crackle look with Rangers Inkessentials Crackle accents., (love this product).. You can opt not to do this and make it your own. Some of the Chipboard is from an older Lil Davis Line.
Beads, Wire, Paper, Mod Podge, Jute, Eyelets, Buttons, ink, star punch, sticker quote or dictionary term. Glue gun and stapler.
Basically the process is the same as the center piece except for the top part.
First 2 important steps. Mod Podge your paper onto the tube. Let dry then press flat the bottom end and staple. This closes your party favor bag at the bottom.
embellish in similar fashion as the table top centerpiece except add a beaded wire handle to the top.
You can adapt these little favors for any them. Just think of the possibilities, Christmas, weddings, Halloween, Birthdays, Spring.. Kids might enjoy a more simple version of this too. I hope you get a chance to try this.
