So, On June the 6th, 2012, My Sister, The youngest of 5 kids, graduated from high school. I remember that time in my life. The WORLD is OURS for the taking. EVERYTHING is in front of you. You ALWAYS heard "Don't take your youth for granted, You'll miss it" of course in MY case, I DID take it for granted, but, I know now, and I'm a better person for it.
I decided to make LOTS of home made stuffs for this special occasion. The story behind our immediate family is that we all took our own paths and left the coop. Whenever something like this happens, Its SO Refreshing to come together and Just have a GRAND ol' time!
I decided to make her some candy lei's and colorful cup cakes, and OF COURSE, whats a Graduations without Cool and Glittered Signage?
First up, the CANDY Lei's....These have been done for YEARS and YEARS. I remember making my other sister these for her 8th grade graduation with chocolate kisses, and they came out FABU!
Here are the supplies:
•Candies (Don't EVER be afraid of color)
• Plastic Wrap
•Cool Printed Duct Tape
Make your pattern... By Color, Size, etc...
I found that the EASIEST candies to do this with was the EVER POPULAR MAMBAS, because they are Square shaped and ooohhh sooo gooood!
I took the gum balls out of the wrapper and they went nicely.
WAH LAH! Here's the finished... and one for my Nephew, because he MADE it to FIRST grade... I HAD to ;)
