Step 1:

Cut a piece of the brown paper out to roll into a tube. Tape it closed. Make sure it’s a little longer than your finger because it will be folded in a minute.

Step 2:

Fold the corners in, then fold the end so it’s closed. Tape it shut like you’re taping a present. This is so it sits on your finger well.
