To make
Cut your choice of paper to the size of an A4 sheet.

Place a loo-roll tube on the long edge of the paper in the centre and hold in place with some tape.

Put a cracker snap through the middle and secure at one end. Roll the tube up in the paper and fix with double-sided sticky tape for a neat finish. 

Scrunch one end together gently and tie with ribbon or string. Place small presents and a paper hat in the open end of the cracker before tying up the neck.
