5 Minute Upgrade: Candy Card

The idea for this series was born when a friend requested quick ways to make a gift look nice before running out the door. Want more? Click here to see every 5 Minute Upgrade post to date!

Disclaimer: this may or may not take you a literal 5 minutes - but! - once you have a box of candy it should be quick little project.

As you can see, this upgrade is straightforward. Use a box of candies as the card for your gift! Though the one above is styled with ribbon and a small tag, you could do a very simple version with a blank mailing label for the "to/from". The candy card can be attached to your gift with tape or a firmly tied ribbon.

Thanks to Real Simple's Solutions for the idea, and the Pasadena Public Library for loan of the book!
