I'm a quilter so I was able to neatly cut my card stock sayings...I attached them to my purchased items with tape, glue or staples. I find when preparing my candy it's easier to just use plain tape to pre-stick my bamboo skewers....then I trim my duct tape to size, and secure the skewers to the back of all the items I wish to put in the bouquet.
I prepared some celo just by cutting squares, and folding them in a way that would make a nice spray...also did the same with my blue tissue and made my bow....everything is ready for assembling.
Then I just stuck everything into the pool noodle...starting with my largest pieces at the back, and placing them to make a nice compact bouquet.
Ta...Da....finished and admired :-). Well our neighbour loved it! We were unable to attend his retirement party because of a previous commitment. This came together very quickly....wasn't inexpensive...but could be if you used smaller chocolate bars--mine were full size--a recycled container--overall without the gift card, you can easily make this for under $15 or $12. You could make it even less expensive by using a container that doesn't show....thus not needing the hard candy to cover the pool noodle/foam. Hope you give this a try.
