Make Candy Bar Cards

A card personalized with candy-themed sayings is the perfect budget-friendly DIY gift for any occasion, giving the recipient a reason to smile, along with a selection of their favorite candy. To make your card, you'll simply need a piece of poster board, a marker or sheets of computer-generated text, a hot glue gun, and, of course, candy. Glue the actual candy where its name fits in the saying.

Birthday Candy Card

Give a friend a special candy card to celebrate their birthday in style. This project can be tweaked to include the recipient's age and any other extravagant gifts matching their interests, such as Super Bowl tickets or a shiny new Ferrari (or maybe just a lottery ticket if you're on a budget).

You're such an amazing friend that I was
going to get you [100 Grand] for your birthday.
Unfortunately, when I went to the bank, the money
slipped through my [Butterfinger].
[Payday] isn't until next week, so you'll have to settle for this card
wishing you [Mounds] of [Almond Joy] until I
can take you on a trip to the [Milky Way].


Graduation Candy Card

A candy card is appropriate for preschool, kindergarten, elementary, middle, or high school graduations, with wording that can easily be tweaked to mention personal details such as special summer vacation plans.

Congratulations graduate!
You've proven to the world you're not an [Airhead].
With what you've learned, I'm sure you can [Skor]
a [Payday] of [100 Grand] or more.
Enjoy a summer filled with [Extra gum] fun, but remember
you can count on me if you ever hit a [Sour Patch].
I love you to [Reese's Pieces].

New Baby Candy Card

Congratulate the proud parents on the newest addition to their family with a sugar-filled treat that they can enjoy during their baby’s late-night feedings. When paired with diapers and wipes, this is a thoughtful yet practical gift that's guaranteed to please.

[Extra gum]! [Extra gum]! [Extra gum]!
There are [Good & Plenty] reasons to celebrate your little one's arrival.
You might feel like [Airheads] and have [Butterfingers] from [Zero] sleep, but
your life is sure to be filled with [Mounds] of [Almond Joy].
Give (baby's name) lots of love and [Hershey's Kisses] from me.

Prom Invitation

High school students looking for a clever yet budget-friendly way to invite a date to prom can make a fun card filled with clever candy sayings.

Hey [Hot Tamale],
I know I'm a [Nerds], so please don't [Snickers] at me.
I think it would be [Mounds] of fun to go to prom with a
[SweeTART] like you. If you say yes, I promise we'll have
an [Extra gum] special night you won't forget.
Hugs and [Hershey's Kisses],
(your name)

Teacher Appreciation Gift

Teachers work tirelessly each day to educate their students, so they're well-deserving of a sweet treat or two. Your kids will love helping you to create this unique DIY teacher appreciation gift, which they can personalize with a hand-drawn border.

Thank you for giving me [Mounds] of knowledge this year.
You taught me how not to be an [Airhead], and now I feel like a real [Smarties].
You deserve [100 Grand] on [Payday] or a
shopping [Spree] on [5th Avenue] for being
an A+ teacher.
From your [Nerds],
(child's name)

Valentine's Day

Instead of professing your love with a heart-shaped box of chocolates, give your sweetheart a handmade candy card that shows off your sense of humor. Personalize this card by describing how your Valentine makes you laugh or what he or she does to cheer you up when times are tough.

Our love is like a [Symphony].
You always make me [Laffy Taffy]
and I know I can count on you if I ever hit a [Sour Patch].

I know we're [Junior Mints] to be together forever!
Hugs and [Hershey's Kisses],
(your name)
