    Do the same with some other jelly sweets, piling them on top of the marshmallow. As you add your last sweet, push it so that the skewer goes halfway through the sweet. Repeat this for the other four skewers. Try to make an order, like: Marshmallow, Jelly bean, Jelly bean, Haribo, Haribo or something like that!

    Take the tissue paper and wrap it around the skewers like wrapping a bouquet of flowers. Do this by putting your bouquet across the bottom left hand corner of the sheet and rolling the paper diagonally upwards. Secure with a piece of sticky tape. Tie the length of gift ribbon around the sticky tape, finishing it off with a neat bow.

Tips

  • For a healthier treat, why not use fruit? Cubes of kiwi strawberries and star fruit look cute bunched together in a bouquet, just replace the tissue paper with tin foil, or stand it in a skinny long glass.
