Candy Pencils

Pinterest.  Again!  How cute are these???  Inside the paper is a roll of ROLOs candy and then on top is a Hershey Kiss.  I attached the tag underneath the Hershey Kiss so that it would stay put and not move.  I hear the teachers loved them.  I have been wanting to make these for a while but couldn't because it was the summer...not anymore!  :-) 

Directions:  (Video Below)
1.  Cut yellow cardstock to about 3 3/4 inch x 4 1/4 inch.  Then run the longer side into a paper crimper.
2.  Cut a pink piece of cardstock about 3 1/2 inch x 2.  Ink the edges and attach the long end to the end of the yellow paper with red tape. (You will have to overlap the paper, depending on length of the ROLOs.  Just measure it before you attach the two pieces together.)
3.  Place some glue on the inside of the paper as well as red tape on one of the long ends of the prepared paper piece.  The red tape will be at the closer of the roll after you wrap it around the candy.
4.  When the ROLO candy is covered, add glue dots, tag string and the kiss to the top to appear as the "lead" of the pencil.

I hope all these directions make is making me think I should do a video for this project...., I did!  It is below.  It is really quick, just shows you how instead of telling you how....Hope it helps.  Have a great day and remember it is always homemade!
