Valentine Candy Gram Fundraising
January 11, 2016
Welcome 2016! So many of you have been asking about candy grams for Valentine's Day so we are re-posting this fun blog on how to make them.
A new year and a new semester bring new ideas for fundraising! In previous posts, we've emphasized the benefit of coordinating your fundraiser with a holiday theme, and Valentine's Day is no different. In fact, it is one of the better holidays to coordinate with your candy fundraiser. Items like chocolate bars, chocolate roses, and lollipops are great little treats to make into candy grams that friends can give to one another or a sweetheart. Boost sales even more by adding some valentine's flair with our free download & print chocolate bar wraps and lollipop tags.
Once you've downloaded the wraps, follow the instructions to cut them apart. We recommend having a table or location setup when selling these to make the bar wrapping easier. Once your customer has selected their chocolate bar, they can select a wrap design and then you/your group helpers can place and adhere that wrap around the bar for the customer.
If you are considering pre-wrapping your chocolate bars prior to 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
Don't worry, we have not forgotten about chocolate roses or lollipops! You can download and print our fun valentine's tags to use. Follow the how-to instructions on our previous blog post here. 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. You can go even further with your lollipops and create a festive and fun bouquet. Group several pops together and secure with ribbon of your choice. Be sure to price these accordingly, adding up the selling price of each item you include 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 stick up on your table setup. You can even place them on or inside candy or snack fundraising boxes as a decorative and informative eye catcher.
