What You'll Need:
ArtSkills Construction Paper 9"x12"
Crafter’s Closet Tape Runner
Crafter’s Closet Precision Scissors
Crafter’s Closet Gold Ribbon
Kiss Shaped Candy
Rectangular Wafer Candy
Let's Do This!
Use glue dots or the tape runner to adhere Kiss candy to end of your choice of rolled cylindrical candy.
Measure and cut out a 3 1/2" wide x 4 5/8” length piece of yellow construction paper (length of your candy roll).
Place candy roll on paper, letting the paper slightly overlap on top of the kiss candy. Adhere to candy using the tape runner or double-sided tape.
Apply adhesive with tape runner or double-sided tape to the remaining unattached edge of the construction paper. Wrap the yellow paper around the candy pencil, covering it completely.
Measure and cut a 1"x1" square of pink construction paper and a 1" x 3 1/2" rectangle of pink construction paper.
Trace a dime onto the 1"x1" square.
Draw 1/4” x 1/4" tabs in a “T” shape along the edges of the traced circle.
Cut out the circle with the tabs attached.
Tape the circle with tabs to the end of the candy pencil. Fold down the tabs and adhere them with the tape runner to the sides of the yellow paper.
Tape and roll the long pink rectangle on the end of the pencil, covering the tabs previously adhered. Tip: for a nicer finish, keep all paper seams on one side of the candy pencil.
Cut a 1/2” x 3 1/2" strip of aluminum foil.
Tape and roll foil onto the edge of the pink band. This will make the pink section 1/2” wide like the foil section.
With a black marker, color the tip of the candy pencil.
Write “No. 2” on the side of the pencil near the foil edge.
Trace rectangular wafer candy on pink paper.
From this traced rectangle, measure and draw a rectangle 1" high above and below.
Measure and draw rectangle 1 1/4” out from the left and right of the traced rectangle center.
Cut out the shape, keeping the tabs attached to the center rectangle.
Fold and crease the tabs on the cut shape.
Place the rectangular candy in the center.
Adhere the tab edges with tape runner. Fold tabs inward, keeping all seams to one side.
Flip candy eraser over and write “Pink Eraser” on the front. Tip: use cursive letters to give it some extra flare.
Packaging & Tag
Measure and cut a 1 1/2" x 2" rectangle from desired construction paper color.
Pick a side of the rectangle and snip off both corners. Tip: for more symmetrical sides, lightly fold the rectangle directly in half and cut the corners.
Measure and cut a 1" x 1 1/4” rectangle of white paper.
Similar as before, pick a side of the white rectangle and snip off both corners. Tip: make these cuts a little further apart from the color rectangle.
Make a small cut with a project knife between the two snipped sides on the end of the color rectangle. This will be where the ribbon slides through.
Use the tape runner to adhere the white tag onto the color tag, keeping both snipped ends facing the same direction.
Write your message on the tag.
String tag with approximately 11" of gold ribbon or string.
