You could make him (what I'm making) a candy bouquet like this http://pattiewack.com/candygram_bouquet.html but just not make it so Valentinesey. Also, they do have the York pepermint patties in WalMart on the Valentines candy isle. I don't know whats different about them though. Maybe they are heart shaped or something. Hope this helps.
I LOVE the beads. I am definitly going to do that. I have made several bangles with modpodge and comics. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=190947.msg2006727#msg2006727 Just a tip in case you need it, I seal all my stuff with Krylon Triple Thick Crystal Clear Glaze about 4 times. It makes it water proof and super shiny. Once again both of your bracelets are really cute.
