Mine had a bit of a gap in the back, but I really wasn't worried about it. Once I put the candy cane sticks into the piece, I just made sure that part was facing the back on all of them.
I cut the sticks into 3 pieces, but you might want to measure and cut the size that will fit wherever you are putting the candy.
The next candy I used Idea-ology Baubles, colored them with the same alcohol inks as the glitters. To attach the glitter, I rolled the colored baubles in some Distress Collage Medium, then I quickly rolled it in the matching Distress Glitter that I used for the letters. You need to set them aside to completely dry.
