Frankenstein Candy Wrapper Supplies

Step One

Measuring paper for box of candy wrapper.

Step Two

Box of candy with green wrapper and cutting hair for Frankenstein.

Step Three 

Use the circle punch to punch eyes from the white card stock paper. This is a great time to use up those scraps you’ve been saving. You can see that I didn’t even worry about punching out entire circles since the eyebrows cover the top of the circle. Attach the eyes to the face with double-sided tape.
