This is a super cute treat that you can make using a variety of punches – it is fun & easy to make and the kids (and grown up’s!) are going to LOVE them!

There are two outside pieces and in between them you sandwich a circular thin candy such as a Peppermint Pattie – so this Sheep tastes as good as she looks – and she is freestanding making a perfect little treat for your table place settings!

Then turn the front part over…

And place the second large Scallop Circle on to it and line it up so it fits perfectly – this will give you a guideline on where to attach your ‘back legs’…

Attach your back legs in place to mirror those on the front…

To assemble:

Take a Peppermint Pattie (or other similarly shaped & sized candy)…

And fold the wrapping in and tape in place so that it will fit nicely between your sheep body…

And using a piece of tape adhere to the reverse side of the front of the sheep…

And then add the back of the sheep, again using a piece of tape…
