Mickey Candy Box Template

Santa Mickey will light up any room this Christmas. And as if he wasn't already full of holiday cheer -- he holds candy!

  1. Use scissors or a craft knife to cut out Mickey's body and each of his arms. Do not cut along dashed lines in the body or arms -- these lines are where you will fold the paper.
  2. Take Mickey's body and make all of the folds along the dashed lines for the body and the tabs. Make each fold away from you except for Mickey's legs. For Mickey's legs, fold the top dashed line towards you and the bottom dashed line away from you. This will help Mickey sit on the edge of a table or shelf.
  3. Glue the tabs to the inside of Mickey's body. The glued tabs will create an open box on Mickey's back.
  4. Fold each of Mickey's arms in half along the dashed line and glue the two sides together. Be careful not to glue the tabs at the end of each arm together. Instead fold the tabs outward in opposite directions so it creates a base to attach the arm to Mickey's body. Glue each arm to Mickey's sides.
  5. Drop a few pieces of candy into Mickey and make a special Christmas delivery!

This project is a lot of fun. This is my follow up to the Halloween candy box I did 2 months ago. I have printed out the template on card stock, it really makes the cutting and putting it together much easier. The only hard part it cutting around the edges, it's challenging for kids to get around all the edges.  So they can help with the taping it together. Thanks for stopping by ;-)

And Don't forget Wayne from Prep and Landing

Cutie Wayne makes an easy papercraft and an awesome Christmas decoration. Set him up somewhere with a good vantage point so he can prepare for Santa's arrival!

  1. Print Wayne on regular paper or cardstock and cut out all of the pieces. Do not cut along the dashed lines -- this is where you will fold the paper.
  2. With the design facing you, make all of the vertical folds in Wayne's pants away from you. Close the pants by gluing the A tab to the inside of the design.
  3. Fold the bottom of Wayne's pants outward, his feet down, and his tail up.
  4. Fold the top of the pants like a box and tuck the tab inside.
  5. Fold and glue the front and back of Wayne's head so the design is two-sided. Make sure the pieces are lined up evenly before the glue dries. Insert the neck into the top of the pants where you folded the top closed.
  6. Fold each arm in half and secure so the design is two-sided. Do not get glue on the tabs at the ends of the arms. Fold those outward so you can use them as a base to attach the arms to Wayne's pants. Glue the arms to Wayne and your elf is finished!
