Candy Card for Husband with Printables

My husband loved the first candy poster I made him I decided to make him another one for Valentines.  Here is the front of the Card.
                                   Here is the inside

Here are the Step by Step Instructions with the free printables. Everything was bought at Dollar General.
  1. Take a 14 x 22 Poster board and fold it to open like a card. Use a bone folding tool or credit card to lay the crease flat.
    2. Print these words that go on the front, It fits a 8x10 computer sheet. Click on them before printing.

    Use a glue stick on the back and attach to card front.

    3. Glue the Riesens Candy to the front with double side tape.
    4.  Print this sheet for the inside. (Click on it before printing) Cut the word into strips so you can space the candy and  place them on the card the way you want.

    5.  Use glue sticks for the words strips and double sided tape for the candy.  You can add  # 6 if you can find a small box of red hot candy.  I couldn't find them here.

    This can be used for Valentine's Day, Birthdays, Anniversaries, or other special occasions. You can come up with ideas of your own, but if you need it in a hurry, you can print the 2 sheets.  Enjoy!

Valentine Candy and Flowers in a Vase

I have heard of Candy and Flowers for Valentines Day, but I have never heard of Flowers in Candy. What a creative idea from Angelo Home.  By using 2 vases, one smaller than the other, you can fill one with candy and one with flowers.  Visit this site for the  tutorial.  I am loving this idea.

Cell Phone Candy Valentine Craft

Kids loving making cool cool Valentine Cards for family and friends.  Here is a  cell phone with a text message for your favorite Valentine.  These are super easy to make and it is the perfect project for mom and preschoolers and older children.  Cut card stock into 3 inches by 7 inches.  Make a template to get the most pieces from your paper. You can add your service carrier logo and other things to make it look more realistic.

  •  Choose a piece of colorful cardstock.  I only had this dull gray color.
  •  Cut cardstock into 3 by 7 inch pieces(make a template to get more pieces)
  •  Fold the cut pieces in half
  •  Use a graphic program to make your cell windows or hand draw
  •  Add candy buttons for the cell phone buttons.  I only had a blister pack of laxatives (sorry about that) but you get the idea.

If you make one of these, please send a picture  and I will share it here.

Valentines Candy Poster for Husband

Several years ago I made my husband a homemade Valentine Candy Card with a folded piece of poster board...When I look at this candy card, I cringe  because it could have been so much better, but he has saved the card all these years. The inside of the card reads:
  • Dear Sugar Daddy
  • Hope this card brings you many snickers 
  • You give my Life Riesen 
  • Wouldn't trade your for 100 Grand
  • Our life is a Symphony
  •  and then I added a Be Mine Chocolate Heart
 Of all the gifts I have given him through the years, I think this simple card was his favorite...and my daughter still remembers it too. Sometimes It's the smallest things that mean the most.
