This is a super quick & easy way to dress up some store bought treats for party favors!
The red paper & green ribbon give a nod to the strawberry theme without overpowering it.

Step 1: Cut
Cut 2" wide strips...as many as the number of cake rolls you'll be decorating.
I use a page that was about 8.5" x 11" & cut the strips going the short way. Then I cut each of those in half, ending up with a strip that was about 2" x 4.25". They ended up a smidge short, but it was no biggie.
Step 2: Wrap & Tape
Wrap the red paper around the cake roll & secure with a piece of tape at the bottom.
You could probably also just secure it with the ribbon in the next step.
Step 3: Wrap & Tie
Now, wrap a piece of green ribbon around the paper & tie it in a double-knot. It wouldn't hurt to have an extra hand to help you with this.
Step 4: Trim & Tie (again)
If you have excess ribbon, trim it off & use it for this step. Otherwise, just trim another piece off the spool.
Add this shorter piece to the knot, tying with a single knot.
Step 5: Curl
Curl the ends of the ribbon & you're set!
If the ribbon is tied on loosely, you can add a small piece of tape on the bottom to secure it.
