Here is an easy prom fundraising idea from a previous blog post. We received many success stories from our customers, so we wanted to share it with you again.
It is PROM TIME! That means it is time to break out the decorations, formal attire, and some fundraising. You may be head of the prom committee or need to do some springtime fundraising for a class trip or sports equipment. Using prom as the time for your fundraiser can really pay off. Here's a handy idea with our chocolate roses that can help boost your spring school fundraising:
ASK ME TO PROM ROSES
- Download our printable sheet here of "will you go to prom with me" cards.
- Print out and cut apart cards (6 cards per 8.5x11 sheet, so you have no waste!). You can use any color paper but if you have card stock or a thicker paper your cards will hold up better.
- Hole punch each card in the middle at the top and using ribbon, tie one card onto each rose. If you choose to, you can punch two holes close to each other so your card will sit more centered on the candy stick.
- The giver can write their potential prom date's name at the top and sign their name at the bottom on the dotted lines.
Now, you/your group can either pre-tie on all cards and ribbons to the rose or if you have a table setup, leave them loose and only tie them on as they are purchased. This way makes it easier for people to write their names on the cards. If you have a table set up, having pens on hand will also be helpful for purchasers to write their names on the tags.
If you use curling ribbon, you can curl the ends of the ribbons after they are tied to add some fun or simply tie it into a classic bow. Use your school colors, prom colors or just a bright and fun variety! Either way, your fundraiser is sure to be the hit of the school and not only bring in money for your cause but also spread some prom cheer!

We have been getting many requests for new fundraising ideas for Valentine’s Day, and we decided to re-post this blog about how to make Valentine's Candy Grams:
It's a new year, and time for new fundraising ideas. Having your fundraiser coincide with a holiday is a great idea because it can allow you to tap into some of the holiday buzz. Valentine’s Day is one of the best holidays for a fundraiser because patrons are looking for gift items, and candy is closely tied to the holiday.
Items such as chocolate bars, chocolate roses, and lollipops are wonderful treats to make into candy grams that make for great gifts to exchange near Valentine's Day. Boost sales and add Valentine's flair with our free download & print chocolate bar wraps and lollipop tags.
Download the wraps and follow the instructions to cut them out. Allow patrons to select a chocolate bar and a wrap design, then wrap the bar for them.
If you would like to wrap the bars before selling, keep a few things in mind:
- If you are selling a single chocolate bar flavor, make sure you have a sign(s) stating they are chocolate bars
- If you are selling multiple flavors of chocolate bars, you may want to wrap each flavor in its own design so you and your customers can easily distinguish between them or keep them in labeled boxes by flavor
Let's not forget about Chocolate Roses and Lollipops! You can download and print our fun valentine's tags to attach. Follow the how-to instructions on the download. Similar to the chocolate bars, you can pre-attach the tags to the lollipops or let your customers choose the tag they wish for you to attach. Go even further with your lollipops and create a festive and fun bouquet! Group several pops together and tie with ribbon of your choice. Be sure to price these by adding together the cost of each item in the bouquet. Further instructions on making the lollipop bouquets can be found here.
We've also created valentine's themed sale signs for you to use in addition to the tags and wraps. Download and print these $1 signs or $2 signs to post on your selling table. You can even place them on or inside candy or snack fundraising boxes as a decorative and informative eye catcher for your candy gram sale.
