Edible arrangement

A couple weeks ago when I was in Wal-mart I wandered down the Valentines isle. They had some candy bouquets that were rather cute but in my opinion a little too expensive. You know me, not only am I cheap but I look at things and say "I can make that myself" So that's what I did.

In fact I made 2.


I already had the vases, the red tissue paper and the skewers. All I had to buy was the candy. You can use any kind of container you want and put in as many or as few pieces of candy as you like. Simply tape the skewers to the back of the candy and then build your arrangement.

I had considered doing a tutorial for the mini books that I showed you on this post but It took a ton of pictures and I didn't think I could put it together without making it sound totally confusing. If anyone is interested in how to fold the paper to make these books I did find a drawing (click here) that explains it pretty well. You could also find several versions on Pinterest by searching for folded paper mini book

Funny that you should blog about this today! I just went and looked up the price of some Edible Arrangements. You have to spend at least $50 with delivery. Unbelievable!! Yours are cute!!

I am hopeless, I looked at the link on folding and could not get past 1 and 2 steps, I have seen these candy things on line to be shipped and they start at 25 and go to 100.. most are about 30 to 50. your cost was only the candy.. wow...

So cute. Way less expensive too. It's the labor that is the biggest cost.

Have a fabulous day Ann. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥
