A candy bar poem card is a unique and fun gift that you can make for Mother’s Day. The hardest part is writing the poem, but you just need to think of a couple sentances. Sometimes it helps to browse the candy bar aisle. Have a notepad and pen handy to jot down notes as you think of ideas.
Supplies needed: Elmer’s foam board, candy bars, paper crafting supplies for decorating the card, pen, glue, and ruler.
Look for the paper crafting supplies at Walmart in the craft aisle. I’ve had a stash of paper supplies for years so not sure of the name brand of the items. You’ll want 12×12 paper size in a couple different colors and some glitter and glue and any other scrappy supply that catches you r interest.
Paper crafting supplies:

Candy bars and foam board:

I decided on this foam board. It’s the perfect size for a card:

 

Decorate the cover. I used a variety of scrap paper and then used glue and glitter to write out the front of the card.

 

Decorate the inside. I just guess on the spacing and hand write the card.

My poem reads:

Wish I could give you a 100 Grand
for a shopping spree on 5th Avenue.
Instead please Take 5 and enjoy
this Thingamajig while thinking
of your 3 Musketeers.

 

 

Ta Da…finished product.

If you have any questions about supplies needed or help writing your poem leave me a comment and I’ll try to help you out :)

    I wanna do this but I can't come up with a poem. I just got back form the store and I grabbed a whole bunch of candy bars. I got milky way, snickers, mounds, take 5, almond joy, and others. Can you help?
