At the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference in January I participated in a candy wrapper swap and got some really great ideas that I’m incorporating into my classes and club meetings. This idea was from my friend Connie Babbert (from Create with Connie & Mary).
These are made from a 6×6 piece of Designer Series Paper. I decided for my Birthday class we would make these using the In Color Patterns Paper Pack that you can get as a Level 1 Hostess set. I let everyone choose the color that they wanted. There is just one score line to create the top fold.
We used a strip of Whisper White card stock that was punched with the Scallop Border punch and glued on the inside front panel. You can’t see them to well in the picture but we used a coordinating Stampin’ Write Marker to add dots to the scallops – everyone thought it was pierced and the paper was showing through the holes but it is just the marker.
Punch two hole in the top through the front and back layers using the Crop-A-Dile and tie a piece of ribbon through. The tag uses the Eat Chocolate stamp set punched with the Wide Oval punch and layered on the Decorative Label punch in the matching In Color. On the corner we added a Bitty Button – punch the button shape using the Punch Pack punch that matches the button shape. What I do is use a bit of snail and attach the button to the punched card stock. Then with a Paper piercer I pierce the button holes. Then I use a dental flosser to pull a piece of crochet thread through the holes and tie it in a knot. Punch a hole to add the tag to the ribbon.
Slide a skinny candy inside – something like a SKOR or Dove bar – you can use two mini glue dots to secure it on the inside so it doesn’t slide right back out. These were quick and easy especially if you use the 6×6 paper stacks so you don’t even have to cut the paper.
Thanks Connie for this great project!
