Home Stretch

143 kids so far, but it's slowing down. Just thought I'd show off my handiwork here - sometimes I'll do the fancy tool/template thing but this year I just grabbed a pocket knife and went for it.

One little trick that's very helpful and I haven't seen many people mention is that you can cut the hole in the bottom instead of the top. Just throw it away and set the candle on the ground. you don't have to worry about fitting the lid back on, and it's easier to get the candle level and not falling over, and you don't burn your hand getting it in or lighting it - you just set the thing on top of the candle. I've been doing it this way for a couple of years now and it's nice.
