Materials Needed to Make a Candy Bouquet:
- Crepe Paper Paper
- Small, Wrapped Chocolate Candies
- Chenille Stem
- Glitter Pen
- Card Stock
- Satin Ribbon
- Craft Glue
Instructions:Step 1: Start off by taking a length of crepe paper, about 24" long, and fan-folding it into eight layers. Then, cut out double humped shapes to make the petals (you will have eight of them). Step 2: Spread a layer of glue onto the bottom of a piece of wrapped chocolate and plunk it down in the middle. She also got the base of the flower ready. She just cut a circle about an inch in diameter out of card stock.
Step 3: Sylvie found the best way to glitter the edges of the petals was to fold the petals and color the edges with the glitters pen.
Step 4: When the petal edges were dry, she scrunched up the bottom and glued it to the outer edge of card stock circle. Do the same with the second petal, gluing it to the opposite side.
Step 5: Repeat with two more petals.
Step 6: For the second layer of petals, Sylvie glued them a little closer to the center and off-set them so they covered two of the petals from the first layer.
Step 7: Repeat with the last two petals.
Step 7: When the flowers were ready, glue them to the chenille stem. Finally, tie them all together with a satin ribbon n make a bow.
