Paint glue over an entire face.
Working from the bottom,
stick down the feathered strips.
Overlap each strip a little way around the edge
Unwrap the un-snipped strip
and use glue to attach it to the edge
Cut crepe paper into 3cm strips
Leave one whole
With the others, cut 2cm snips all the way along
They create a feathered look when opened out.

For children older than 5 years consider adding extra strips around the edge to reinforce it and make it last longer
Secure the lid on with tape
Place the sweets inside
Cut strips about 5cm wide
Weave them between the tabs
Use tape to fix securely all the way round
Again, have the plain cardboard facing outwards and the pictures on the inside
Fold back the tabs

Cut chunks out around the shape
to create tabs
Leave a 2cm gap as you cut around the line to allow for making some tabs
