Back in June, I wrote about making these crepe paper flowers from a kit. Using more of the stem pieces and paper that looks like it came from a dictionary, I made these flowers:
I had enough paper to make more flowers but I was running short on time. They looked fine among the food on the table, tall enough and large enough to be noticed without being in the way.
I also made these cute little "books" from Hershey Nuggets.
Do you know what is wrong with "cute" food? Nobody wants to disturb it. Nothing like being a Weight Watcher member with lots of leftover candy on the table!
You can find dimensions on other blogs but I think you may want to experiment and find what works best for you. For a ballpark measurement, I'd suggest your page strips be 1" wide and close to 4" long. The "cover" of the book started out at 1.5" x 2.25". I trimmed the sides after the candy was attached because I thought the cover was too large.
I removed the backing on one side of the tape at a time, wrapping it around one candy, including the underside,
I snugged the second candy up against the finished half before rolling the page strip over.
If you don't want to write on your blank pages, a strip of ribbon or a sliver of colored paper would be a cute book mark to add.
