Project Instructions

  1. Make the "candy" shapes first so they will have time to dry. Using brown Model Magic, shape balls and squares to about an inch.
  2. Roll white Model Magic into thin roll and use as "icing" on the candy.
  3. For a marbled look, work equal amounts of white and brown together until marbled to your liking and then shape.
  4. Roll white and brown separately to about ¼ inch thick, then layer and cut into 1 inch squares.
  5. Use bottom of the box as your pattern and trace onto paper. Cut out shape.
  6. Glue paper to box top. Glue doilies to box top as desired.
  7. Roll out red Model Magic to ¼ inch. Cut out heart shape, let dry and coat with clear glitter glue, let dry.
  8. Add pink foam heart and Love sticker.
  9. Cut paper strip to fit around top edge of box, top with ribbon.
  10. To decorate the inside of the box (Optional)
     
    Flip box bottom upside down, and trace onto paper of choice. Adhere paper to inside of box lid. Set aside.
    Cut 15 one-inch circles out of coordinating papers, and glue into candy cup bottoms. Use adhesive numbers, or markers to number all the candy cups.
    Assign a chore to each number in the candy cups. Either write with marker, or use adhesive letters to spell out chores on the inside of box lid.
