Step 1: Cut a circle out of the cardstock and make the circle slightly smaller than the cardboard roll so that it fits easily into the roll.
Step 2: Cut a rectangular piece of cardstock that will fit around the circle. Tape the strip onto the circle with the washi tape.
Step 3: Hot glue the paper straw onto the end of the circle. This will be your popper pusher.
Step 5: Now take a piece of tissue paper and wrap it around the cardboard roll. Tape the end with the washi tape.
Step 6: Fill the cardboard roll with the candy and stickers. Then put the popper pusher from Step 3 into the open end of the cardboard roll. It might be difficult to maneuver it in, but the paper is pliable enough that it will fit.
Step 7: Add some glitter ribbon to make it extra fancy and add a fun note for your valentine. Voila! You're done and have a fun surprise for your little valentine.
