Halloween Treat Holder

Don't want to hand out candy at Halloween this year? Fill this cute Halloween holder with pencils, glow sticks, or other non-candy treats. A simple fold creates a pocket without a lot of fussy measuring and scoring. Use Glue Lines™ for a strong, secure hold on the sides of the pocket to keep the candy in place.  They're so easy to make, you'll be done in no time!
