. Cut out the pieces using the template. The fox's body will be orange with white accents. The sizes can be scaled to fit any bag you like. Or, try gluing the fox face onto a Valentine's Day box or mini treat bags. 

Step 2: Prepare bag


First glue a piece of orange paper to the front of bag. Then glue the large heart to the top half of bag. The heart should overlap the edges of the bag to form the face of the fox.

Step 3: Add face


Glue the two eye pieces onto the heart. Place the shapes on the lower portion of the heart with the two edges meeting at the point. Choose a thick white paper for this so no orange shows through. To make the fox body, glue the half circle on the bottom portion of the front of bag. Assemble the two tail pieces and glue the tail to the side of the bag. Assemble the ears and glue to the inside top of the bag so they point up near the handles.

Step 4: Add details


Finish the fox with a gray nose and heart detail. Glue a little heart onto the white half circle. Finish your fox by making two eyes using a black marker.
