Can you guess what kind of candy is in this tag? You can make these by cutting out one of the Two Tags die. You want the wider one. After cutting out you will need to make another score line 1/4″, on the side without the hole. Fold on both lines & add your candy, (have you guessed yet?) I used a small amount of adhesive so the candy doesn’t slip out. Next comes your ribbon. I used about 9″ of our yummy 5/8″ satin ribbon. Your ribbon will go thru the half circle that was cut (when you ran it through the Big Shot), and up thru the hole on the other side. (I know, clear as mud). You secure the ribbon by adding a Pony Bead. Click on the photo to see it better. You don’t have to make any knots or bows. Then just decorate. I used the Sending Love dsp and our new Pinking Hearts border punch, Scalloped Heart of Hearts, Embosslit, I (Heart) Hearts stamp set & also the new small Heart Punch. I put 3 of those Andes Mints inside. Now I didn’t think this up myself. My new friend Connie Stewart traded me one of these candies for one of my Coffee Collars at Leadership. All of the items used to decorate my candy are from the Occasions mini catalog. You can click on my “SHOP 24/7” button on the right to order any of these products.
I bet you thought our Treat Bags were only good for Christmas. Think again. This is what Steph gave me at Leadership. She was my roommate while in Phoenix. Isn’t it cute? She started off with our Treat Bags, (page 159) and added the Sweat Pea Stitched Felt pieces to the bag and secured them with the new Epoxy brads. Both of these items are in the Occasions mini (page 32 & 13). The Sweat Pea Stitched Felt you get 52 pieces for $7.95, how cool is that? The brads are$4.95 for 16 in the 1/2″ size and $3.25 for 16, in the 1/4″ size. That’s only .31 cents & .21 cents each. It was stuff full of Ghirardelli squares in Raspberry. They matched the Sweat pea perfectly. Yum! Yum! Thanks Steph!
I loved when Carrie Cudney from our home office demoed the Heart Chipboard albums at Leadership, especially the Valentine Box. I also knew my “club gals” would like to make this project. So today that is what we did. They all turned out so cute. We used the Sending Love dsp, On Board Heart Book, (I split these up and they each got 2 pieces (hearts), our new satin ribbon and the new Epoxy Brads. Not to mention the new Embosslit Heart, Small & large heart punches, and more. You can find all these items in the Occasions mini catalog that just came out. When I took these photos today I didn’t write which box goes to which person, so I’m just going to post them all, because they are all “beautiful”. I’m missed 2 people. Sorry about that girl’s. Don’t forget you can click on each photo to see it better.
