Valentine Gum and Candy Basket

This post was supposed to happen this morning…but my computer just. would. not. cooperate! I couldn’t get anything to load and then it didn’t save my draft. So very frustrating! But I think it’s ready to work now! So here is my Corner News post! Today I am showing you a very simple Valentine craft-and it involves chocolate!

I had the little box already, and you could use whatever you have on hand or buy a small jewelry box. The gum and candy came from the Dollar Tree and I had the ribbon. The gum was packaged in pink, but when I opened it, all the individual pieces were silver. Oh well. I just went with it!

I started out by gluing all the pieces of gum around the outside of the box. This box took 20 pieces.

I ended up using 2 different ribbons. First I glued a wider black and white polka-dot ribbon around the box and then used the pink polka-dot one to tie a bow in the middle.

After that, it was just a matter of adding the candy! I had to fight people off in order to get a picture with the candy still in it!

Hope you have a wonderful rest-of-your weekend!
