Hi friends! It’s Day 28 of the 31 Days of Candy, and we’re almost done with this fun month of candy. I’m on my honeymoon now, so this is a short introduction today. The candy for the day is my Nerdy Box pattern that’s inspired by Nerds candy that is one of my favorites. It also was inspired by my major nerdy side that I have! I am a huge nerd. I love superheroes, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Dungeons and Dragons, and anything that might be a part of nerd culture. This candy is for all of the nerds and candy lovers out there!

Fasten off and leave a tail for sewing. Sew on face to Nerdy Box, and stitch glasses around the eyes of the nerdy box. Then sew the two ends together, and arrange it so that half of it in the front is pink and the other half is purple as pictured below. The seal up the rest of the edges on the candy bar.
