Place one strip on the other leaving a visible space on the top, because that is the part that we are going to stick to start creating the spiral.

Apply glue to the strip that is lower and stick it with the other in position.

Then apply glue to the part that is left over (pink) and turn towards the yellow part to start the first part of the spiral that is the center of the candy.

Start rolling it up and try to keep it tight enough so that it doesn’t tend to open in the center. When you finish rolling it you will notice that there is a longer piece (yellow), you will cut it a little lower than the size of the other strip (pink)

Already have the center of the candy, now we are going to work the two sides that are going to be the wrapping. To do this we are going to cut two pieces of foamy the size of 1 1/4 “


Place a dot glue in the center of the foamy square and fold so they stick in that area.

Now you are going to stick both pieces to the candy, cut the tip a bit to eliminate any excess of glue and remain smoother when joining the candy.
