Christmas Candy!!

Hi again,
Yet another Christmas project to share with you! These are the little gifts my son and I made for his classmates at school. I have to say the idea is not mine, a friend made these with her boys a year or two ago, and the idea just stuck with me (TFS Lynda!)
We used the retired Merry Minis set and watercoloured the images to match the Designer Series Paper (DSP) we chose. Here are some pics for you.

A close up!

Project Recipe:

Fold a 16cm x 5cm piece of DSP in half and stick together near the open ends. We used Dashing, Wintergreen and Ginger Blossom. Punch at the open ends with the Scallop Edge punch (A great new punch available in the Summer Mini).

Push the folded edge of the DSP as far as it will go into the Double Slot or Double Circle punch, centre it, edge to edge and punch.

Stamp your image on scrap cardstock and colour as desired, here I used an Aqua Painter and Ink pads to colour.

Punch out your image with the 1 ¾ " circle punch, and mount on a piece of co-ordinating card stock. Here I punched the co-ordinating cardstock with the Scallop Circle punch.

Adhere to your DSP.

Slide the candy cane inside the folded edge of your DSP. Take an 8cm length of co-ordinating ribbon and feed through the holes from top to bottom with both ends. Cross over and feed back up through the opposite hole to form your bow. This will hold the candy cane firmly in place.

Too easy!!!

Hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by.

'Til next time …
