Gifts for Suitemates

I forgot to take pictures of the in-progress, but they're really easy to make!

First I got some holiday themed Hershey's Kisses :)

Then I calculate how many I'll actually need to make- 13.
9 for my suitemates, one for my boyfriend, and three more for some other friends I have at school.
Then I just made 13 piles of Hershey's Kisses, everyone got one green, on silver, and one red.

Now on to the actual wrapping!

I told a couple suitmates to save the toilet paper rolls for me to make these. Basically get as many toilet paper rolls as the number of gifts you want to make. Again, for me it was 13. Most people do this with tissue paper or something, but I like to keep gifts uniform with the wrapping, so I used this really pretty wrapping paper I've been using for gifts!

Then I took my toilet paper roll and added about 4 inches to the length, and one in to the circumference. I cut 13 pieces of the wrapping paper of the same size and I began to make them!

Since I forgot to take in-progress shots, I'll just... Make a fake one... Without a toilet paper roll because I don't have an extras haha

Now what you need:
Wrapping paper, tissue paper, whatever you want to wrap your toilet paper roll with
Toilet paper rolls

Here is your toilet paper roll (But really it's scrap wrapping paper made into a cylinder with the back side facing up):

Now you take your piece of wrapping paper and wrap around, then tape it shut:

And now you take your ribbon and tie one side shut:
Don't forget to curl the ribbon!

Then you drop in the Hershey's Kisses, or whatever thing you choose to put in, and then seal the other side the exact same way!

Here is the REAL finished product!

And now you have HOLIDAY CRACKERS!
