How to make a candy gram card....perfect for Dad!

Hey there!  I have a fun post for Father's Day...happy Father's Day to all the daddies out there!  Today with the help of Sharpies Fine tip markers, a poster board, my computer and a bunch of sweet treats, my girls and I have a fun candy-gram card to celebrate Father's Day.

We picked up a variety of different candies and made up a message to incorporate the names of the candies within our card.  The card is made up of a blue poster board from the dollar store and we used computer generated text with details hand drawn with Sharpies.  I attached the candies using my craft adhesive from Scotch ATG.  This project was super fun and would be great for graduations, valentines, birthday parties, etc.  How cool would this candy-gram be with a gift card to the local movie theater attached or a DVD for the ultimate at home movie night?   

We had a lot of giggles coming up with this gift including choosing a candy to represent the girls....we opted for "sour patch kids"!  "Sugar Babies" would have been cute too. Be sure to search "candy gram" on Pinterest and you will find all kinds of fun ideas on ways to use candy to create these cards. 

I hope you had a fun weekend and thanks for stopping by!
