This month’s collection includes a new set of candy huggers — this time from outer space! We have been wanting to do some alien projects for a while now. And since our theme for the month is space, we couldn’t resist making these cute alien candy huggers. 

This is an easy paper craft to make with your cutting machine. Or you can always print out our PDF template and cut by hand.

The pattern for our alien candy huggers includes four different designs for you to make. Because of the intricate cuts, we recommend using a cutting machine. If you’d like, you can also print our black and white version for young kids to color while you are crafting.

Once you’ve cut your candy huggers, you can use them for party favors, gift toppers, or as holiday treats. If you’re using them for a party, we think they would look extra cute with our frosted paper spaceships. However you use them, we think your kiddos will love them!
