Easy-Peasy Candy Pouch Gift or Favor

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!!

Here are the steps:

  1. 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!)
  2. Fold the 2 cardstock Top Notes up about 1/2″ along one long side.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. Tuck the candy into the cello bag.
  8. Tie a piece of ribbon (here, White Taffeta Ribbon) around the pouch to hold it closed.
  9. Decorate the outside with a tag. Here I used the Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch and Oval All stamp set.
  10. Give to friend!
