  • 1 Prepare the materials

  • 3 Create the eye

    Punch or cut a 1.5" circle from the black cardstock. Glue Dot® a 25mm wiggle eye to the circle. Glue Dot® the circle to the center of the vellum. Peel and stick several bats onto the vellum.

  • 4 Attach the ornament

    Place the vellum inside the ornament, tab down and snap together. Push the tab down into the "X" on the bottom of the cup.

  • 5 Decorate the cup

    Embellish the cup with glow in the dark stars and moons.
