Flower Wrapped Favors DIY

Another gem from Martha. How does she do it over and over again with complete style and grace?!?

Directions for assembly:
  1. Fill a 3 5/8-inch-high acetate cylinder with candy. 
  2. To make flower, cut a 9 x 30” piece of tissue paper. Fold, accordion style, in 5” wide layers. Cut petals in smaller end; unfold and lay on flat surface.
  3. Place cylinder on paper with bottom about 1” 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.
