Graduation Pretzel Rod Bouquet

What a fun little gift to give graduation party guests! 

Supplies used:
Pretzel Rods
White Almond Bark
Waxed Paper
Wilton Candy Melts
Small Wilton Squeeze Bottles (one for each color candy melt)
Tall mug
Cellophane Pretzel Bags
Curling Ribbon
Cardstock (I used prism)
2" punch

Using the tall mug to dip pretzels into the almond bark works great!  I like to dip as much of the pretzel as possible!  Lay dipped pretzels on waxed paper until dry. 

Put candy melts in small squeeze bottles and melt in microwave.  I filled the squeeze bottles about half way and it took about a minute & a half to melt.  (watch carefully so it doesn't scorch!!)

You could also use a plastic baggie.  Just cut one of the bottom corners off the bag. (keep the cut small!!)

Drizzle candy melt over pretzels.....

Using cricut, cut desired shape.  I used Plantin Schoolbook and cut stars at 3.5" from Prism yellow cardstock.  I designed the circle tag using photoshop, printed and cut out with 2" circle punch.  Glue the circles on the stars, punch a small hole on top of the star, ink with colorbox fluid chalk, and thread curling ribbon through the hole. Put one pretzel in a pretzel bag, tie on tag and wala!

I designed them in photoshop, printed and then used a 2" circular punch to cut them out. Email me the colors and info you'd like on them and I'd be happy to create a pdf file for you! this_old_barn at (www in front and no spaces)
