I took my sister's project and changed it a little. This is going to school next week for my son's teacher. Very easy and inexpensive to make. Here's how I did it:


Dollar store: Transparent Red Gift Wrap, Vase, Heart Picks, Liquid Marbles, (4) Nestle Milk Chocolate bars.

Local craft store: 3/16" x 12" doll rods, floral stem wrap tape, packing tape

Stampin' UP: Whimsical Words stamp set, Sending Love Specialty paper, Real Red CS, Pretty In Pink CS, Whisper White CS and Real Red Classic Ink, 1/4" circle punch, Mini Glue Dots, 1-3/8" circle punch, 1-3/4" circle punch, Scallop Trim Border punch, Pennant die, Big Shot, dimensionals, SNAIL & sticky strip adhesive.


Cut 2" x 7"of Sending Love Specialty paper

Cut 1" x 7" piece of Real Red CS. Use Scallop Trim Border punch on both sides & attach to Sending Love Specialty paper with SNAIL. Wrap band around vase and secure with 2" piece of sticky strip.

Using pennant die, cut scallop circle in Pretty In Pink CS.

Punch 1-3/4" circle with Real Red CS. Attach to Pretty In Pink scallop circle with SNAIL.

Stamp greeting onto Whisper White CS and punch greeting with 1-3/8" punch.

Attach to 1-3/4" Real Red circle with SNAIL then attach greeting to band on vase with 2 dimensionals.

Turn each candy bar over an tape doll rods onto back using packing tape.

Cut Heart picks down to desired size and tape onto back of candy bars.

Cut transparent gift wrap into (4) 12" x 12" squares.

Punch hole in center of wrap using 1/4" circle punch.

Turn transparent wrap from square position to diamond position.

Place doll rod with candy bar thru center of transparent wrap.

Bring opposite corners up and secure if needed with mini glue dots.

Wrap doll rod with floral stem tape starting at the top and working your way to the bottom of the rod.

Cut (8) 1/2" x 12" of Sending Love Specialty paper strips. Wrap tightly around pencil to curl paper. Attach 2 to back of each candy flower with mini glue dots.

Fill vase with liquid marbles and arrange candy bar flowers inside.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
