You Da Bomb Candy Valentine

We just loved this cute Valentine idea when we saw it over on Make It Do.  What a perfect gift for my kid’s teachers, don’t you think?   Have you noticed that we are into all this corny stuff?  I like the goofy sayings. 
These were so easy to make (double bonus!)  We used Rolos (my favorite) but then found Mentos on sale, so we used those for some of them.  We wrapped them in red paper and used a small piece of a pipe cleaner for the wick.  I glued them together at this point so they wouldn’t fall apart.  Then wrap a black ribbon around it and add a cute tag.
Boom!  Valentine.  (No pun intended.)  =o)
You could write “You’re Dynamite” or “You’re the Bomb” or “You’re a Blast”.
I hope they like them!
