Directions

    Start with four sheets of different color construction paper

    Main body of your Favor

    Cut toilet paper roll in half (forming two smaller rolls approximately 2 ¼ inches long)

    Take one sheet of colored construction paper

    Cut out 3 ½ inch by 7 inch rectangle and put glue on one whole side of paper

    Wrap paper around 2 ¼ inch roll

    Turn the overlapping paper into the inside of the roll and press down
    firmly to smooth out

    Favor Band

    Take another sheet of construction paper, in a different color

    Cut out 7 inch by ½ inch rectangle strip of paper and put glue on one side of paper

    Wrap 7 inch by ½ inch rectangle strip around 2 ¼ inch roll about 3/8 inch from left side of roll, set roll aside

    Favor Heart

    Take pink or red construction paper

    Cut out one – 1 inch square and fold square in half

    Draw small half heart on folded edge of paper and cut out

    Glue heart on right side of roll, set roll aside

    Flower

    Take your last sheet of construction paper

    Cut out one - 3 inch square

    Fold square in half and then in half again to form small 1 ½ square (two side will have folds two will have open ends)

    Draw a light guide line, diagonally, from the double folded corner to the double open corner

    Draw a line from folded side to folded side, ¼ inch from the folded corner (forming a cross line in your diagonal pencil line and a small right triangle on the folded corner)

    Draw half petals on the folded sides of the 1 ½ inch square (see diagram)

    Draw a full petal from the folded corner to the open corner (see diagram)
    With square still folded, cut along outside petal lines (dotted lines on diagram) and open to make your flower
    With two fingers holding the center of flower and the base of each petal, very gently pull the petal (between middle finger and thumb nail) from above the base of the flower petal to the top point of petal. This will curl petals. Repeat action on each petal until all petals curl slightly.

    Glue flower on to favor band directly across from heart decoration on right side of roll

    Paste Brown MINI REESE'S PIECES peanut butter candy in center of the daisy and let dry.

    Inside Favor

    Cut a piece of colored tissue paper about 7 inches wide and 1 ½ feet long
    Stack 4 HERSHEY'S MINIATURES chocolate bars on top of each other and tape together

    Roll candy up inside tissue paper (forming a kind of tissue paper tube)

    Cut two lengths of colored ribbon, and tie off the ends of tissue paper tube (close to candies) trim ribbon if necessary.

    Slide tissue covered HERSHEY'S MINIATURES chocolate bars through one end of the open tube, until wrapped chocolate is completely inside the tube.
