Candy Pig Paper Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Giving out a "candy pig" card has a bit of a double meaning... Kaitlyn decided daddy is a candy pig so he deserves one, hehe.  Darren's response was...  I'm not a candy pig, I'm a candy HOG!! 

This is a simple three dimensional paper craft that will hold a piece of candy standing up on a table or flattened slightly on a card.

You can use cardstock or a heavier paper to make the body (just trace the template) but, in my opinion, regular paper or construction paper works best for the head and tummy.  I find cardstock can be too inflexible for three dimensional crafts.  If you do make the body from cardstock, a glue gun would be a sturdier choice than school glue for making the cone shape.
