DIY Candy Puns Birthday Gift

Looking for a sweet birthday gift? Check out this DIY Candy Puns Birthday Gift on www.drugstoredivas.net.

My birthday was earlier this week, which I have said about a half dozen times on social media already. My cousin sent me a DIY Candy Puns Birthday Gift, which was so amazing that I had to take photos of it and turn it into a blog post.

It’s candy, which I love, wrapped with tags with puns on them, which I also love. How could you go wrong? You can’t.

This is also a very good gift considering the state of the world right now. Because you want to celebrate and you want to let someone know you’re thinking of them, but you also can’t be together. So mailing a gift is your best option.

But you don’t just want to pick something off their Amazon wish list and just send it. So many people have been doing so much online shopping lately, so another Amazon box isn’t exciting.

You want something unique, special, and fun and this punny candy birthday gift is it.

DIY Candy Puns Birthday Gift

I’m calling this a candy puns birthday gift because I got it for my birthday. A couple of the tags specifically mention birthday. But, if you just wanted to send this as a gift to let someone know you were thinking of them, you could just skip those.

This gift could honestly work for anything: birthday, retirement, thinking of you, etc. Just adapt the tags if you need to.

What You’ll Need:

Quick note about the what you’ll need section. It’s based specifically on the items my cousin sent me (and specifically what’s in these photos). If you wanted, you could change up the candy and the tags, but I wanted the what you’ll need items to match what you would need to make the exact candy puns birthday gift in this post.

What You’ll Do:

Cut out squares from the white card stock. You’ll need one square per candy box.

Cut out squares of scrapbook paper, just slightly larger than the card stock. Again, you’ll need one square of scrapbook paper per candy box.

Use the scissors to cut two small diagonal slits near opposite corners of the scrapbook paper.

Slide the cardstock paper into those slits. The slits will hold the card stock in place. If it’s easier for you, you can just glue the card stock down onto the scrapbook paper.

Using markers, write the candy pun for each of the candy boxes on the cardstock (there’s a list of candy puns below). That’s your tag.

Use a one-hole punch to punch a hole in the upper left corner of the tag.

Cut a piece of ribbon. String it around the candy box and tie a bow.

Then thread one end through the hole in the tag. Tie the ribbon into a bow to secure the tag.

If you need to, you can use a small piece of tape on the back of the box to hold the ribbon down.

Continue this process until every box or bag of candy is labeled.

Fill a box with paper shred. Bury the boxes of candy within the paper shred.

Top with a card.

Seal the box up and mail it to your recipient.

List Of Candy Puns

I’m listing all of the candy puns that my cousin used for my birthday gift. If you have any more, be sure to leave them in the comments and I’ll add them to the list.

You can use any or all of these to make the tags for your candy for this punny candy birthday gift.

When my cousin made this for me, she used a second colored marker to highlight the candy name on the tag to make it stand out. I definitely suggest you do that. Below I highlighted the word that she made a different color so that it would stand out to you when you were making the tags.

What I love about all these tags is that they’re all really positive, unlike the “40 Sucks” birthday tower (made of lollipops, aka suckers) I’ve been making lately. And it’s unlike the “40 Blows” candy jar filled with bubble gum I’ve seen. These puns are really happy and uplifting, which is exactly what the world could use right about now.

DIY Punny Birthday Card

My cousin one upped herself when she added a punny birthday card to go with my birthday gift.

I’m not going to do a full tutorial on it, but I did want to include it with this post.

So, basically what she did to make the card was the same thing as the candy tags. She cut a piece of white card stock, then cut a piece of scrapbook paper a little larger. She made angled slits on opposite corners and slid the piece of card stock into the slits to hold the card in place. Then, she wrote the note on it.

The best part of the card was the pun. She glued two googly eyes down, then added an apostrophe followed by an m — to spell out I’m. So two eyes followed by ‘m and then “wishing you a happy birthday.”

I’m wishing you a happy birthday. Fantastic.

This DIY Birthday Lollipop Tower is a great gift idea for your friend who doesn't love aging. Get the tutorial on www.drugstoredivas.net.
