Step 1: Adjust your registration guides so that the elf design fits within the print area. Print the design with registration marks on to white card stock. Once cut, fold down the 4 sides from the top of the head, crease all the perforated edges and fold the white tabs inwards.
Step 2: Apply glue to tabs 1, 2 and 3.
Step 3: Align the tabs with the front of the head. Hold until dry.
Step 4: The ear should stick out from the back. Apply glue to tab 4 and fold over the side of the cape. Hold until dry.
Step 5: Apply glue to tabs 5 and 6. Align the tabs with the other side of the head. Hold until dry.
Step 6: The front of the hat will stick out slightly from the side. Apply glue to tab 7 and fold over the remaining side.
Step 7: Apply glue to tabs 8,9,10,11,12,13 and 14 along the back of the elf.
Step 8: Fold over the back panel and align the side tabs with the back panel. Hold until dry.
Step 9: Insert your candies through the bottom. Fold in the 2 white tabs and close it by sliding the green tab inside the front of the elf.
Voila! Your little elf is ready to gift or display!
