This comes from watching my mom do these things for special occasions while growing up.
A candy board is a big ol’ card that you make with an assortment of candy bars to substitute for the words.
I made one for my friend who just welcomed baby numero 3 to their family … BABIES! (I love babies.)
I ended up with these
candy bars words to work with from a trip to the pharmacy.
And got right to work.
Poster Board (or heavy paper, any size)
Candy with words displayed on packaging
Sharpie, or pen
My camera was acting up that day so I don’t have the usual play by play of the process. But I do have this:
After you write your board out and just place the candy in for the appropriate words, you need to tape them down. I used scotch tape, easy. Just make a loop, stick that sucker to the candy and place the package to the poster board.
Repeat until all the packages are taped on your poster board and you’re good to go!
Stacey – A SYMPHONY for you …
You’re the MAMBA of 3 MUSKETEERS!
How much have you’re OH HENRY! moments
increased? Does your brain feel like SKITTLES
from those SUGAR BABIES? I hope your
CHUCKLES have increased from all the BUNS
you see 🙂 But we married NERDS who travel
and leave us to RAISINETS the GOOBERS.
You’ve got a week of LIFESAVERS coming <3 (something along those lines, I can't remember what I said where it gets cut off in the photo ... ) You can do this with almost anything - my mom wrote me a letter for one of my bridal showers to coordinate with the gift - it was a laundry hamper full of cleaning products and the names of the products were worked into the letter. I saved it, I'll find it and share it with you - it was so fitting and completely hilarious. I like these as an alternative to Easter Baskets, First days of school, Valentines cards, and birthdays. It's a fun and easy way to make a personalized (and tasty) card. Especially if you don't have the time to bake a cake or cookies or something - grab 3 or 4 candy bars and make some one's day! (Also, no craftiness involved. So you can continue to pretend you actually make cards with your stash of paper, glue and glitter. I know you.)
