DIY "She Got Her Rock" Rock Candy Favor

I'm a big fan of a good pun. If you've been around here for a while, I'm sure you've noticed.

Last weekend, we were at a wedding with a candy bar. So of course, while my parents were slowly saying their goodbyes, I went over to check it out. There was rock candy, so I grabbed one for each of us. And, as soon as I grabbed it, a pun popped into my head. So, sorry to my mom and dad, but no rock candy for them. I needed it as a prop for this post. Their loss is your gain.

Using a paper trimmer, cut the free printable into diamonds. They end up being 1-inch squares.

Use the paper trimmer again, this time to cut the card stock into diamonds. You'll want them to be 1.5-inch squares so that they can fit nicely behind the printable.

Glue the printable onto the colored piece of card stock. Allow it to dry.

Cut a piece of bakers twine and glue it to the back of the card stock. If you're unsure about the glue, you could always tape it down. Tie it around the rock candy.

That's it. You can display these or put one at each person's seat at a bridal shower or engagement party. They're super cute and tasty too.

Now, about that printable:

    1. Nicole, it's not a PDF. It's an image. Just right click the image and save it to your desktop.

    1. Hey Lauren. I don't have it in a vector form. The program I make it in allows JPG or PNG saving only. It didn't print blurry for me, so I'm a little confused why yours was. I can, however, PDF a version of the PNG image and email it to you and you can see if that works better for you. Send me an email at abrideabudget@gmail.com and I'll shoot that over.
