This container would make a great prank holiday gift. I plan to wrap my daughter's Christmas money in the one I made with my son's and husband's help.
When I went to wrap my daughter's gift, I noticed my container was slightly loose. I added a rubber band for a tighter fit.
Step 1: Materials
Cardboard (e.g., back of a legal pad)
Construction paper that matches the color of the inside of the ribbon spool (optional)
Rubber band (optional)
I used two identical spools of ribbon. If you use different spools, make sure the sizes and descriptions on the spools match so the secret is maintained.
