Flower Folds Easter Favor!

I think M&Ms have got to be one of my favorite candies - and they're even better when they come in pastel colors in a cute little spring flower! This is one of the items we made at my Spring is in Full Swing Camp Wannastamp and they were a big hit. They're quick and easy - and that's my favorite way to craft! The little Easter tag attached finishes them off so nicely! The recipe is below.

Penny, So adorable! I'm hosting an event Friday night and I've just got to make these for the ladies, so fun!

Did you make a hole in your flower to get the candy out? If so, how did you do it??? I don't think the circle punch will go in that far...

Thanks for your help and that's a super cute idea!!

Queene Jeannie: I didn't make a hole for the candy! I was just using these more for a cute favor or to have in everyone's plate at the Easter Dinner table. Heaven forbid anyone tear it open to get the candy!!! Ha! I just wanted it to look cute!
