A Candy Bar Card is a story that is recreated using candy and poster board. I received one of these candy cards in High School at my fast food workplace I worked at. I've also made these for several people through my life. They are a big hit. These instructions will help you make one for a Special Retiree.
Every Candy story board is different, since each person has a different story. Once you look at Candy Bar names, your ideas will start rolling. Write them down on a pad of paper at the store so you don't forget. If you need A good variety of unusual or interesting or vintage candies, try Looking for the candy stores or shops stocking rare or nostalgic candies, and venture beyond the normal choice of candy that is in most stores.
Have fun and be a creative with your candy card. The retiree you give it to will cherish the memory forever!
Buy whatever candy bars or gum or candy you need to suit your story. I will give you some ideas later.
Buy whatever color of poster board suits your story. You can also buy kits that make cool margins with stickers if you want too.
Lightly draw the letters with a pencil on the poster board, setting the candy where it goes, so you know you have room for it before you make any permanent marks. This is like a rough draft.
Write over the penciled words with colored markers and tape the wrapped candy onto the card with double sticky scotch tape. Leave the candy in its wrapper so that the person you are giving the card to can eat it.
You are such a ZAGNUT to leave us, but we hope you find time in your Retirement to take an (airheads)EXTREME shopping SPREE on 5TH AVENUE in New YORK, listen to a SYMPHONY SKOR, or just SLOW POKE down and TAKE 5 to watch STARBURSTS in the MILKY WAY. We will miss your CHUCKLES and SNICKERS when we all take a FAST BREAK. You deserve a 100 GRAND PAYDAY, but we have ZERO dollars. We want to thank you for RAISIN(ets) the progress bar in this WHATCHAMACALLIT to a higher level! You have always taught us NERDS and AIRHEADS not to be GOOBERS or LEMONHEADS with good RIESEN and with such ALMOND JOY. You made BIG HUNK DUM DUMs feel like SMARTIES. Your LIFESAVERS TWIX were SPECIAL (Hershey's Dark) and we will fall to (Reeses) PIECES without you! Even If we ORBIT the planet MARS we will never find a SWEETART as NUTRAGEOUS as you!
HUGS and KISSES,
Add your own personalized story part too, to make it more special and not just general.
Give your special couple their candy bar story card in a group setting. It is more fun that way!
