Candy Elephant Paper Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

This is a simple three dimensional paper elephant that will hold a piece of candy standing up on a table or flattened slightly on a card.

You can use cardstock or a heavier paper to make the body (just trace the template) but, in my opinion, regular paper or construction paper works best for the head and tummy.  I find cardstock can be too inflexible for three dimensional crafts.  If you do make the body from cardstock, a glue gun would be a sturdier choice than school glue for making the cone shape.
