Cut the cardboard tube in half, then cut one of the halves in half.

Fill all three pieces with glitter, confetti and other festive accessories.

Lay the wrapping paper face down on a flat surface, then set the three cardboard tubes in an even row at the edge of the paper, leaving a 1/2-inch space between each tube.

Carefully glue or tape the edge of the wrapping paper in an even line across the tubes. Roll the paper over the tubes once and trim excess paper (also on each end of the tube).

Gently twist tubes at the disconnected points and add ribbon for flair.

Add them to the table place settings, place a bunch inside a large glass bowl or hand out right before midnight.

Tips and variations:

Before giving poppers to guests, use a pin to poke holes around the edges of the tube so it will break open easier. For smaller poppers, use cardboard tubes from wrapping paper. Use color copies of family photos for a personalized look.
