This one was super easy, and fun.
The tutorial shows a variety of different candy stick ideas. I chose Lindt for Little Mr P and will tuck it away for one of his stocking gifts. I may even make one each for everyone in my family as I think these are a great idea.
I picked up pretzel bags at the dollar store. Before this challenge, I never even knew they existed! lol I placed 5 small Lindt balls in the bottom section of my tube as I was trying to get the balance I needed to create a diamond pattern for the next couple of sections. Low and behold it worked! That usually never happens for me.
You will notice a repeat performance of some of the supplies from the past days challenges. I have to confess that is partly because I am already into the sparkle of Christmas, but mainly because I have not cleaned off my desk yet. Out of sight, out of mind...and these sparkly bits and bobs are lying there, just begging to be used!
I punched a Stampin' Up scalloped circle from Best Creations Olive Green glitter card and fully anchored it onto the candy tube with a staple. I put the staple right through the layers of folded green as I knew I could hide it with the next topper layers. Sure enough the red glitter card circle hid it well. I punched a Martha Stewart snowflake from some scraps of the White glitter card, added a red rhinestone and the front was finished. Another snowflake was placed on the back of the topper and this time I used another fussy cut image of the teensy holly leaves from MFP Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set.
I am entering this project into the following challenges:
