[MAKE] CANDY ROBOT VALENTINES

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SALLY J SHIM

The boys made these sweet candy robot valentines for their classmates in 2010. The robots were inspired by these sweet treat transmitters. You can find a template for the body here but we used small paper bags instead. The original post can be found here.
