Unicorn Cups

  1. Fill the party bag with marshmallows and tie off the end
  2. Glue the party bag onto the paper cup, upside down
  3. Glue your ribbons in front of and behind the marshmallow bag, creating the mane
  4. Cut hearts out of your foam sheets and cut them in half. (I actually found foam hearts at the store and cut those in half)
  5. Glue the half-hearts (ears) on either side of the marshmallow bag and mane
  6. Use your marker and draw eyes on either side of the cup
  7. Optional (add any of your favorite rainbow or glitter unicorn embellishments!)

Love Bug Bags

  1. Cut the crepe paper to the same size as the width of the bag
  2. Use the scissors to cut fringe into one side of the crepe paper leaving about a 1/4-1/2 inch uncut at the top
  3. To speed up the process, you can cut about 3 sheets at a time
  4. Place the double-sided tape, or glue, on the uncut part of the crepe paper
  5. Place onto the brown bag, starting at the bottom, and working your way up
  6. Repeat until the entire bag is covered
  7. Fill with candy, and use tape to secure the bag shut; optional
  8. Use the glue gun to add the eyes to the front of the bag and the antennas to the back of the bag.

Candy iPods

  1. Wrap and glue the candy heart box with your construction paper and cut it to fit the candy box
  2. Cut out and glue template to the front of your ipod (Fill the ipod template with your favorite songs, either on the computer or with pen.)
  3. Cut and glue a 12 inch piece of yarn onto the top of your candy box (This starts the headphone wire)
  4. Cut a 4 inch piece of yarn. Tie the end of this yarn piece 4 inches down from the other end of the longer yarn piece. Cut away excess.
  5. Tape two mini reese’s cups to the ends of the yarn pieces
  6. Gift to your favorite music lover!
