Materials

  • Burlap
  • Cellophane
  • Candies
  • 1/4-inch-wide taffeta ribbon
  • Scissors 
  • Olive-drab paper

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Cut burlap into 8-inch squares, and lay over it a 7-inch square of cellophane.

  2. Step 2

    Pile eight or nine candies in the center of the squares.

  3. Step 3

    Close it all up by pulling the corners together and tying tight with an 8-inch length of 1/4-inch-wide taffeta ribbon. The labels were printed on olive-drab paper, cut out in leaf shapes, and slipped into the ribbon.
