White or cream cardstock, lightweight, 70-lb or less
1/4″ double-sided tape
Step 1: Print the PDF on lightweight cardstock. Using a pair of scissors, cut along the edges of the orange portion only. Do not cut out the areas around the green, as you will need the surrounding score and cut lines as a guide.
Step 2: Score along dotted lines 1, 2, and 3, as indicated on the design. With the design facing down, fold along each score line with a bone folder.
Step 3: Score along dotted line 4. With the design facing down, fold with a bone folder.
Step 4: With the design facing down, fold along dotted line 2. Cut away each of the four triangles.
Step 5: The triangles form diamond shapes when unfolded. With the design facing up, cut along the solid lines up to score line 1. You will notice every third solid line is shorter. For those shorter lines, make sure you only cut part of the way without reaching up to the score line.
Step 6: Cut away all remaining negative space. Affix double-sided tape along the edge, as shown.
Step 7: Roll until the double-sided tape meets the edge of the design. Adhere. Note: heavy cardstock will not roll well.
Step 8: Fill with treats and pinch the diamond-shaped spaces inwards to close. Optional: tie with a thin string or ribbon.
