  • 2½ yd. each of solid red and solid yellow fabric, or 10 red and 10 yellow cloth napkins
  • Rotary cutter, ruler and cutting mat
  • Ribbon or small hair bands
  • Small candies or nuts


  1. If using fabric, cut each piece of fabric into 18-inch squares using the rotary cutter, ruler and mat. If using cloth napkins, skip to Step 2.

  2. Add a handful of nuts or candies to the center of each square and secure with the hair bands or ribbon. If you’re using ribbon, tie it into a bow, not a knot, so guests can access their treats easily.
