For the fruit bags, cute a 3 inch wide strip of cardboard about 5 inches long. Wrap it in a circle and staple together. Cut a square of crepe paper in the bright color and one in white that is a little larger. Place the white square over the colored one. Place the cardboard circle in the center and fill with candy. Lift small segments of the paper up and gather and tie.

For the lollipops, cute two pieces of rectangular crepe paper with the white a little larger. Twist around the lollipop for a colorful and fun packaging idea to match your theme.
