Place the cardboard roll on the fabric to see how much we need for the basic detail.
Cut out the excess.

The length of the strips is twice as much as the length of the basic detail and cut it in half.

Repeat for the other side of the roll.

Attach the basic detail to the cardboard over the entire surface adding the glue in small portions.
Be careful to pull up the fabric to make it smooth.

It’s time to stuff the candy. Unroll the end of the bag roll.
Put it inside leaving the end of the bag outside.

Take two pieces of the ribbon and fray check the ends.
Tie the candy wrapper, make a bow and check if the bag can be pulled out easily. Tie the same bow on top.
