How to Make a Poem With Real Candy Bars


A poem is a homemade gift that can fit any occasion. Candy poems use the brand names of popular candies in place of nouns. For example, "Friends can be Life Savers when you hit a Rocky Road." To put a fun, unique twist on a candy poem, you can create a card with real candy bars. To secure your candy bars, choose a strong card stock and strong craft glue.

Things You'll Need

  • Strong paper (poster board, heavy card stock)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Permanent markers
  • Strong craft glue
  • Ruler
Step 1

Cut out the desired shape for card. Make it a single page or two-page card by folding your shape in half. Sketch out your poem lightly in pencil. Leave room for the pieces of candy you will be gluing in the sentences.

Step 3

Glue on your candy bars. You can use miniature bars or regular size, depending on your design and the size of the card that you want to create.

Step 4

Create a spine for the card if you want candy on the inside and you find it makes the card too bulky for just a single folded card. Instead of folding, take a ruler and make a pencil line down the center of the card stock where you would have folded it. Make two additional lines running parallel to the center line, one 1/2 inch to the right of the center line and one 1/2 inch to the left. Erase the center line. Go over your two remaining pencil lines with marker. Fold along each of these parallel lines to create a spine that is 1 inch wide.
