This time of year it seems that everyone is looking for easy favor ideas, whether for picnics, showers, weddings or birthday parties. And there are a lot of cute boxes out there! I often tell people that I’m a lazy stamper though… I like to do projects that are easy to re-create and fairly simple, especially if I’m planning to make very many of the same thing.
This is a Candy Pouch that I designed using the Stampin’ Up! exclusive Top Note Die for the Big Shot die-cut machine. It’s SO easy!!
- Use your Big Shot to die-cut 3 layers at once: the Designer Series Paper (here, Walk in the Park from the Occasions Mini Catalog), and 2 pieces of cardstock (here, Baja Breeze — retiring June 30th!)
- Fold the 2 cardstock Top Notes up about 1/2″ along one long side.
- Inside the folded piece on one of the Top Notes, add a strip of Sticky Strip adhesive. Attach the two cardstock Top Notes together on the folded edges, to make the body of the candy pouch.
- Fold the DSP Top Note in half, the long way. Place a piece of Sticky Strip on the inside of one side to attach it as a fold-over cover to the main candy pouch.
- Trim a Medium Cello Bag so that it fits inside the candy pouch and attach it inside the pouch with 1.5″ of Sticky Strip.
- Use a Stampin’ Around Wheel to roll designs onto Avery Mailing Labels (the 30-to-a-sheet kind) and wrap Hershey’s Treasures candies with the labels. Sure, you could use something else, but these fit so perfectly!
- Tuck the candy into the cello bag.
- Tie a piece of ribbon (here, White Taffeta Ribbon) around the pouch to hold it closed.
- Decorate the outside with a tag. Here I used the Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch and Oval All stamp set.
- Give to friend!
