Make these individual-size treat holders for Cinco de Mayo or as an alternative to favor bags for your next party.

For each, tape a length of ribbon to the top of a bathroom tissue tube for hanging.

Cut a }-inch-wide X in the center of a 2 {-inch square of tissue paper.

Glue the square over the bottom of the tube.

Cut tissue paper into 1 {-inch wide strips at least 6 inches long (fold up a sheet to cut multiple strips at once).

Cut fringe into the strips. Starting at the bottom, wrap them around the tube, securing them with glue.

Tape a ribbon across the X in the bottom. Fill the tube with lightweight treats, such as balloons and plastic animals, and hang it up.

Pull the bottom ribbon to release the loot.
