First, crease your paper against the side of your table to break the fibers a little, and give it a curve.
After that, carefully roll your paper to overlap, and adhere only the two shorter sides together, to make a tube. I like to take a bone folder and press on this seam from the inside of the tube to strengthen it.
Then, check your adhesive on each end and pinch one side closed, with the tube seam in the middle, as shown below. Make sure the end you choose to close first has adhesive running across the entire length of it, or the ends will not stay closed when you pinch them shut!
Place your treat inside open end, which you can see in the photo below on the left. Then seal the open end, this time with the seam of the tube at one extreme side of where you pinch it closed, as shown below on the right.
You can see the shape you should end up with in the picture below on the left. Then, crimp each end of the container closed, as shown below on the right, to strengthen the hold.
TIP: When you are deciding what size to make your container to accommodate your treat, you will want to use scratch paper to figure out the dimensions by trial and error.
