  • Plain paper bags

  • Fence edge punch

  • Scissors

  • Grey card stock

  1. Start with plain paper bags. Fold the gusset downward and cut off the top of the bag, about 2 1/4 inches from the bottom; be careful not to cut through the bottom of the bag.

  2. Punch a decorative edge using a fence edge punch.

  3. Cut "gravestones" freehand from card stock (or use punched circle as a guide to trace rounded edges), and stamp with names.

  4. Unfold bags, fill with candy, and insert gravestones.
