Other Supplies
Clear boxes


  1. Adjust clip art to fit the top of your clear box. Print and cut out. Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper.  Position the paper on the top of the clear box. Smooth the paper with your fingers to remove any air bubbles. Allow to dry.
  2. Create a Mod Melt embellishments by heating a Mod Melt stick in a Mod Melter or high temp glue gun, fill a mold with the Mod Melt, allow to cool, remove from the mold. Use detail scissors to trim away an excess melt from around the design.  We used the large rose for this design.
  3. Paint the rose embellishment with 2 coats of Lemon Custard paint.
  4. Fill the box (or boxes) with candy. Wrap the box with baker’s twine.  Using the Mod Melter, attach the rose Mod Melt in the center of the twine to secure.
