A Sweet Gift

I was asked to share this candy bouquet
I made for a special friend's retirement.
Sweets for a sweetheart of a friend!

Sorry, I made this before
I started "blogging"
so my pics aren't very good.
But, maybe you can get the idea.

I covered a coffee can
with scrapbook paper and
added fun and funky letters
that spell

I added foam and covered
it with shreds.
I taped skewers to the
back of each candy bar using
heavy-duty packing tape.

I just go to the candy aisle
and survey the array of candy bars.
I get my inspiration from the names
of the candy and the occasion
I'm fixing the bouquet for.

I have also made candy gram cards by
using poster board instead of a can.
(Sorry no pic of the card.)

Candy bars I used:
Now you can (Snicker)
when the alarm goes off

Your friendship is
 (Hershey’s Special) to me

I could search the (Milky Way)
and never find a sweeter friend than you!!!

You’ve had your last one (Pay Day)

It’s a (Grand) day

Retire (Mementos)

MINT –       it’s here

Just      (Skiddles)  addle outta here!

It’s   (Crunch) time

Count it ALL (Almond JOY)

(Fast Break) – That’s you today at 4:30

5th Avenue
– shopping you will go

Bit o Honey – that’s what you can put on your biscuit when the Sister Chicks go to breakfast on a weekday.

M & M – Millions and millions of happy times await
