  • Cardboard tube
  • Scissors
  • Decorative paper
  • Tissue paper
  • Dry baby/wet wipe or paper towel
  • Aleene’s Tacky Dots
  • Aleene’s Tacky Double Stick Sheets

  1. Cut a 5″ section of cardboard tube. Cut decorative paper to go all the way around the tube + 1″. Fold 1″ over, wrap the tube with the 1″ of paper inside. This will be the top. Secure the paper with double sided tape.

  5. Fold the dry baby wipe or paper towel to fit the tube like a diaper. I had to fold over an inch length wise to make mine the right size. Fold down corners to make a narrow flat point to the front.

  6. Wrap the back corners to the front side and secure with a Tacky Dot. Before pulling the front up, tuck the extra material under the bottom point of the tube.
