|Trace cookie cutter shapes onto your rind using the tracing tool from your pumpkin carving kit.|
|Cut out the shapes.|
|Slice off the bottom of the melon rind.|
|Use the pumpkin scooper to remove the yummie melon.|
|Reserve the melon in a separate bowl.|
|If you’re making a lantern, place a candle on your cookie cutter. Make a recess in the bottom of the rind so the cookie cutter handle fits snug into it, therefore it won’t slide around.|
|Light it up (or if you’re making a container, fill it with your melon).|
