I've used Want 2 Scrap, Big Beautiful Bling Borders by Nina Brackett
So easy!  Start with a toilet paper tube.  Using Glue Glider Pro and Perma Tac, adhere a piece of cardstock that's been cut to size.  Using Glue Sticks and a glue gun, glue the bottom of the tube closed.  I've used some wire and pearl beads to make both handles.
Start with a toilet paper tube.

Using Glue Glider Pro and Perma Tac, apply adhesive to your choice of paper. Adhere the paper to the toilet paper tube. Press one end of the tube flat.
Using a sewing machine, sew across the bottom. (You could use a hot glue gun instead). Use the tiny "Say it with pearls: and apply a pearl to each peak on the crown.

Twist two ends together and the string a bead on the wire, twist the wire several times, and repeat until the wire is beaded and complete. 
Hot glue the crown to the covered toilet paper tube. Hot glue a pin wheel to the center of the crown. Use a hot glue gun to adhere the wire handle. Add sweet treats and crinkled paper to the inside of the tube.
