  • Fold an A2 piece of green card in half. Measure 1 inch in from the top left hand corner and 1 inch in from the bottom right hand corner. Draw a diagonal line from each of these points. Fold the card along this line. Repeat on the other side.


  • Glue inside the middle of the green card and stick together.
  • Fold out the two ‘flaps’ and glue a piece of garden stick along the widest part of the card.


  • To make the handle, punch a hole on the ‘flap’ underneath the kit. Tie some string through the hole and wrap the length of sting around a lollipop stick.
