Center half of small (#1 from the Standard Circles Small) circle over the edge of front flap, cut.

Cut a small (#1) circle under the small flap.

                     Cut/emboss #5 Labels Thirty Six in light blue cardstock.

 Print party invitations on white cardstock, center #4 Labels Thirty Six over the print out, cut/emboss.

                    Layer labels ,as shown. Punch small hole on top of each label.

 Add candy in cellophane bags ( I used 2 different sized gum balls). Thread the top of bag thru the  opening, as shown.
