We are bananas for you!!

I made a super cute little craft for my grandkids and nieces and I thought I’d share with y’all because it was so easy! 

You will need:

Several boxes of Runts candy – Depending on how many you are making will determine the number of boxes that need to be purchased.  I bought 7 and it was enough to harvest enough to do 9 projects with 15 pieces of candy in each.  Now if someone tells me there’s a way to just buy the banana part that would be genius. 

Monkey stickers – the inspiration for this project came from this “I’m bananas for you” that I have on my Pinterest board – Cute and fun ideas to make.  If you take a peek you will see that my version will save you some time and possibly some sanity. 

See through pouches or sandwich bags – I opted for the little bags that you can find at most craft stores.  If I hadn’t had these on hand then I was going to use a sandwich bag and just tie it up an attach the card to that. 

White cardstock – I had these that are a fun shape but square cards would work just as well.

Ribbon – I bought a color that I thought would coordinate with my monkey stickers.

Hole punch – to punch out the holes to put the ribbon through

I laid out how I thought I would place the monkey sticker on the card

I then wrote on the cards and determined where I wanted to place my holes for the ribbon.  I punched out the holes and placed it on the banana filled bag and marked where the holes were so I could punch them out.

For some reason when I put on the monkey stickers I placed them all the way in the corner and that resulted in some “empty” space that I’m not totally happy with.

And here’s how it all turned out!  I hope the grandkids and nieces like it!
