Candy Bouquet

By the time you read this we will be on our way home from a trip out west for a wedding and visits with our family and friends who live there.  The above bouquet is a little something I made for a SWEET family who we've not seen in several years, but will get to this trip!
They are some of the sweetest people you'll ever meet, and faithful friends "through thick and thin!"
I'm sure they have no idea just how much their friendship has meant to our family --- but hopefully this gift will be a reminder of how special we think they are!

I started by hot-gluing Popsicle sticks to the backs of all the candy bars
For the tall ones in the back I glued two sticks together
I then poked them into a Styrofoam ball and stuffed some pink tissue paper around it.  Fun and easy, and YUMMY too!
I made the cupcake tag using a free cup cake image from Sherry K Designs

That's a fantastic idea! I think it would be a great alternative to a flower bouquet for a guy, too.

Perfect! A teen would sure like it, too. I hope I can get ahead of my writing enough to get some time creating.
