Cut Your Shapes

Begin by cutting out the shapes you will use for your cards. You will need a piece for the back and a piece for the front that should be exactly the same size. Cut through two pages at once to be sure you are creating identical shapes. Cut a shape out of the middle of the top shape. This hole will be filled with candy.

Glue on the Bag

Hot glue (adults should supervise children when handling hot glue guns) the plastic bag to the back piece of your card. You only need glue along the edges of the card. At this point you should still be able to open the plastic bag. Only one side should be glued to the card.
