If you know me at all then you knew that I just couldn't let Molly graduate kindergarten without making some kind of candy treat. Oh I gave it a try but it just didn't take. They are still gonna get the play doh kit and now they are getting little candy diplomas. How cute are these? They are smarties for the smarties. LOL Where do I come up with these things? I know you ask me that all the time and I don't even know myself. I wish I did. I do have a lot of fun making things with candy. It's kinda funny too cause I don't eat a lot of candy. And to answer another popular question, yes, I am the teachers favorite mom. I am also pretty popular with the office staff. Ha Ha Ha!
For these, I just printed off the congratulations on the computer on regular printer paper, wrapped it around the smarties and taped it together. I liked them when I finished them but they needed something, so I added the ribbon and then I loved them. Another super easy, super cheap, and super cute treat.
This is what they looked like before I added the ribbon. I like them way better with the ribbon. They look more like "real" diplomas. There are all 40 in this picture but in the picture with the ribbon there are only 20. I ran out of ribbon so I need to get more. Don't you hate it when you run out of supplies in the middle of a project. Good thing Joann's is close. I will be going there to get more red ribbon. (cause I am almost out of black and I don't have any blue) Figures.
Supplies: Printer Paper, Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Smarties
