YOU WILL NEED

Gold craft pa­per and card­board tube Pink­ing shears and scis­sors Dou­ble-sided tape

Gold string and gold star sprin­kles Christ­mas note

Fer­rero Rocher 1 Cut along both the short edges of the craft pa­per with the pink­ing shears. Turn the pa­per and place a 3-4cm piece of dou­ble-sided tape on the long edge and re­move the back­ing.

2 Place the card­board tube to­wards the bot­tom of the pa­per and roll un­til it meets the tape. Gen­tly rub along the line of the tape to seal it closed. Cut a length of gold string, en­sur­ing it’s a lit­tle longer than the bon bon. Care­fully crunch the pa­per near the edge of the tube and tie with the string. 3 Fold your note and place it in­side. Add a Fer­rero Rocher and some star sprin­kles. Scrunch the open end of the bon-bon and close it with an­other length of gold string. Make one for each place at the ta­ble.

Tip:

It’s a lit­tle bit del­i­cate... When scrunch­ing the ends of the bon bon, take care not to tear the pa­per.
