A poem is a homemade gift that can fit any occasion. Candy poems use the brand names of popular candies in place of nouns. For example, "Friends can be Life Savers when you hit a Rocky Road." To put a fun, unique twist on a candy poem, you can create a card with real candy bars. To secure your candy bars, choose a strong card stock and strong craft glue.

  1. 1

    Cut out the desired shape for card. Make it a single page or two-page card by folding your shape in half. Sketch out your poem lightly in pencil. Leave room for the pieces of candy you will be gluing in the sentences.

  2. 2

    Go over your pencil with permanent marker.

  3. 3

    Glue on your candy bars. You can use miniature bars or regular size, depending on your design and the size of the card that you want to create.

  4. 4

    Create a spine for the card if you want candy on the inside and you find it makes the card too bulky for just a single folded card. Instead of folding, take a ruler and make a pencil line down the centre of the card stock where you would have folded it. Make two additional lines running parallel to the centre line, one 1/2 inch to the right of the centre line and one 1/2 inch to the left. Erase the centre line. Go over your two remaining pencil lines with marker. Fold along each of these parallel lines to create a spine that is 1 inch wide.
