Tootsie Roll Banks

 I will start off by saying I am not a fan of all the holiday candy. My mother gives the kids tons I means tons of candy every single holiday. Unfortunately, most get thrown out after being stored in a cabinet for months. So I tried to find a way to incorporate at least one candy treat into their Easter baskets this year, and this is what I came up with.  
I was inspired by these Valentine’s day gifts seen on Random Thoughts of a Supermom. I figured this way they could get a little treat and then use the banks long after Easter is over.
I cut my scrapbook paper approximately 4.5 x 8.5 inches. 
Lightly sprayed the back using spray adhesive and wrapped it around the banks. 
That’s it! Super easy right? 
Has anyone made any handmade gifts for Easter? I’d love to see them! In case I don’t get a chance to post before the weekend, I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Easter!
