Divide and spread the cream cheese mixture on either side of the mini bagel. 

Add the slices of cumber and romaine lettuce to one side and add the other bagel on top to create a sandwich. 

Use just a little cream cheese to attach the eyes. 

Poke the slivered almonds into the top and bottom of the bagel opening to create monster teeth.

Pack Grape Stacked Cyclops ~ by Jodie Fitz

Green Grapes
Candy Eyes
Food Glue (cream cheese or peanut butter or WOWbutter, which is a GREAT peanut free, peanut butter alternative)
Mini wooden skewers

Simply skew three grapes per skewer. Add a candy eye to the top grape and hold it in place with your choice of ‘food glue’; cream cheese, peanut butter or caramel apple dip.

Want to avoid the skewers? If you want to avoid using the pointed tips of the skewers in the lunchbox, try using thin pretzel sticks or the candy pop sticks which have flat ends.
