Materials: 

Directions:
With the paper trimmer, cut the 8 ½” x 11” cardstock down to 7 ½” x 7 3/8”. Use the score board and score this piece at the 5,  5 2/8, 1 ½ and 1 ¼-inch marks.

After you’ve scored your cardstock, place the XL Candy Bar in the middle and bend the score lines around to really crease them. Use the finger dauber and the Distress Oxide Ink to distress the edges and the folds.

Place some Permanent GlueTape on the bottom inside and place the candy bar on the center.

Wrap it around the back and have the ends meet, adding more Permanent GlueTape on one flap to stick them together.

 With the Lawn Fawn Line Border Die, cut one with the Cuttlebug using one of the smaller pieces you cut from the 8 ½” x 11” cardstock. Once it’s run through the die cut machine, use the sharp end of the Quickstik to weed out the middles of the e’s, the o and the w of the sentiment. Try to be gentle here to keep as much of the die cut in tact as possible.

Place it on the scrap paper and run some distress ink around the top. Add as little or as much as you’d like.

With the Quickie Glue Pen, run some around the back side of the die cut border and then remove it from the piece you cut it from.

Place the sentiment on the bottom center of the candy wrapper. In order to make sure you place it correctly, lay your flower down where you will want to glue it first. You may have to add a bit more glue to make sure the words really stick. 

Glue-Dots-Sweet-Teacher-adhere

Use the Mini Dots to adhere the flower on the wrapper right above the sentiment.

Pick some sequins and place them randomly around the wrapper.  Once you like how they look, glue them down using more Mini Dots.

Once you’ve glued them all down, add a drop of stickles in the center of each one.
