What you can't see is what is in the bucket....so my process was...with a poem in hand I shopped to find a container to hold the candy's that I had on the poem, so with finding the container first...then walked about Dollarrama along with my imagination to fill it up. I was looking at everything as in a word form....so when I found a bag of Bugles...I knew that would nicely fill up the bucket I had chosen. Justin's HS's colours are gold and black....so a black bucket it was. Here's my saying....
Sound the BUGLES!
Look at you, SMARTIE pants!
No REISEN to listen to SNICKERS
that you are a NERD or an AIR HEAD.
You SKOR'd and Excel'd on your
tests and you've graduated!
You are one HOT TAMALE!...There's
no MIRAGE or TWIX....you are on
your way to make
'LOTS OF $$$'S'
GOOD AND PLENTY wishes sent
Most of the candy was 69 cents...the 'Lots of $$'s' was a package of serviettes that are printed with Canadian $$'s. When Justin rec'd it....he didn't want to read it out loud to our guests so Bob took over, and since he knew what I was doing...he read it out loud and at each candy....pulled it out of the bucket...it was a hit! And then of course we had a graduation card with 'real' Canadian $$'s. I may use this idea again,,,it was way easier than taping all the bars/candy to bristol board.....and the container can be ANYTHING that would fit your poem and the candy inside it, this was easier than a candy boquet--but not as pretty.....ENJOY!
