lunch box treat...

-Heather here again...

I was thumbing through my favorite magazine and found this super cute idea for an adorable lunch box treat! It is a tube of Rolos with a Hershey's kiss on the top made to look like a pencil! How cute is that?!!

Here is what you will need to make one:
1 Rolo
1 Hershey kiss
yellow card stock
pink card stock
pinking shears or zig zag scissors
glue dots
paper crimper or something to bend paper

First step: Measure your yellow paper so that it covers 95% of the Rolo pack. Crimp the paper or use a straight edge to create lines going down the paper. Then cut one edge of the paper with your scissors. Use tape to adhere the paper to the Rolo pack.

Next take your pink card stock and cut small strips to cover the end of the Rolo pack. Adhere with tape. Then use a quarter to cut circles for the end or the "eraser" Use a glue dot to stick the circle to the bottom.

Next cut a small strip of tin foil and tape it to the bottom seam where the pink and the yellow meet.

Last step is to use a glue dot and place your kiss on the other end of the Rolo pack. I pulled/ripped the kiss tag out.

I am going to sneak these treats into their lunch tomorrow with a note from mom.

Super cute and easy. It only took a few minutes each!


  1. Heather, you're so talented! I think I'll try to make these for my boys's Meet & Greet night - a little gift for their teachers. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Wow - what a cute idea! Can I ask what magazine is your favorite that this came from?


  3. Hi! I'm a new follower, and WOW! Those are so dang cute! So clever!

  4. Love those Heather!! They will definitely be making an appearance at my house!

  5. someone blogged about this, and gave them as back to school gifts to teachers, but it can also be part of any holiday or end of year gifts for teachers, too. or if your kids bring in goodies on their birthday, or something.

    super cute!
