How to Make It

  1. Draw a rectangle on tracing paper, using the diagram as a guide and your candy box for measurements.
  2. Cut the shape from red (or pink) card stock (or construction paper).
  3. Transfer the dashed lines from your pattern to the right side of the paper.
  4. Lightly score the lines with a crafts knife. Fold along the scored lines. Hot-glue the shape to the candy box at the front, bottom, and back.
  5. If desired, cover the top and short sides of the box with a piece of red paper; glue in place.
  6. Cut teeth from white card stock (or construction paper) and glue to the rectangle ends.
  7. Add blood to the fangs with red dimensional paint.
  8. Finished size: Our boxed candy measures 3 3/4 (W) x 3/4 (H) x 1 3/4 (D) inches. Adapt the design to your boxed candy, enlarging or reducing the teeth pattern to fit.
