  1. Using our template, cut out card stock, stamp or hand-write the four Hebrew characters in the areas that will become the sides, and then fold and glue.

  2. Give Hanukkah gelt, the chocolate coins (left) traditionally used by children for mock wagers, one of these stylish wrapping treatments: In one, small glass canisters are lined with decorative paper and filled with coins. A name tag on top and a paper sleeve with an interlocking dreidel icon template are the finishing touches. Another stack of coins is swathed in blue crepe paper, decorated with a band trimmed with a craft punch, and cinched with thin ribbon.
