How to Make It
Crepe Paper Cracker: For the inner layer, make lengthwise accordion folds in 10-by-4-inch lightweight pink crepe paper; cut fringe on ends. For outer layer: Fold 12-by-8 1/2-inch heavyweight red crepe paper in half lengthwise. Cut ends into petal shapes ( download our template). Center pink paper on red; place 4 1/2-inch-long cardboard tube on top. Roll papers tightly around the tube, affixing with double-sided tape. Tie one end with a raffia bow. Use a paper funnel to fill tube with pistachios; tie the other end. Fluff petals and fringe.
