Want to add a little extra pop to your holiday party? Your guests are sure to have a blast snapping Christmas crackers filled with prizes while they wait for dessert. And the best part is, they’re super easy to make and filled with goodies.

What you need: Wrapping paper, ribbons, prizes, glue, cracker snaps and cardboard tubes. Olde English Crackers has some handy rollers to help with the process, but trimmed-down paper towel or toilet paper rolls will do just fine.

Step 1: Cut a piece of wrapping paper long enough to cover the tube with a few extra inches on the ends for the pulls, and wide enough to wrap around without any part of the cardboard showing through.

Step 2: Next, glue a cracker snap down the center of the paper lengthwise.

Step 3: Place a cardboard tube in the center of the paper. Place a line of glue at the top of the paper, then roll the paper around the tube to seal the wrapping in place.

Step 4: Twist one end of the wrapping paper and tie off with a ribbon. Fill the tube with whatever you’d like: candies, paper hats or even a Netflix subscription.

Step 5: Twist the remaining end and add another ribbon so that the whole thing looks like a giant, festive Tootsie Roll.

Now, let's get this party popping.
