STEP 01 // CUT YOUR WRAPPERS

Print your wrappers out onto regular copy paper of a very thin card.

Cut your wrappers so they are ready to assemble.

Step 02 // ASSEMBLE YOUR WRAPPERS

Fold one wrapper into the middle, right side out.

Sew or hand stitch along one end.

Place your candy inside.

Twist your paper down to the opposite side to form a triangle, sew or hand stitch along the new end to close your wrapper.
