Hands down, my favorite new Designer Series Paper: Greenhouse Gala!! Easily, for sure, no doubt (until tomorrow when I start to play with my Sunny Garden DSP, right?)
But for now, I’m having fun getting ready for my Latest & Greatest Showcase & Idea Blitz, and today I made a collection of little treats to hand out, using the colors from Greenhouse Gala as my inspiration. Okay, the ‘official’ color of the red in this paper is Real Red, but I like to substitute the new In Color, Poppy Parade. You’ll see it below in my project!
These all use the NEW Petal Card Punch (aka ‘Petal Card Extra Large Double Punch’). The center square of each of the punched pieces measures about 1″, just to give you an idea of the size.
Here’s a close up of one of the pouches. They each hold a single Snickers tiny size candy… I don’t have the package, so I can’t remember the actual name of this candy size. Can anyone help me out? In any case, the stamped image on the front is from the fabulous Level 2 Hostess Stamp Set Cute By The Inch, stamped in Pear Pizzazz and cut out with scissors.
Want to learn how to make these cute little pouches at home? I can help you!
- Punch 2 Petal Card Punch pieces — be sure to press the punch down all the way to get a good embossed fold line around the edges
- Add a Mini Glue Dot to three of the petals on one piece
- Fit the two halves together, attaching with Mini Glue Dots at edges (**note, this works best if you wrap the two pieces around the candy, but it’s hard to get a good picture with the candy blocking the way!)
Have fun with these little guys–they’d be fabulous for wedding favors, party favors or as a set for gifts for friends or coworkers for pretty much any occasion. You can check out some other ideas with candy, or try my previous wedding ideas.
Like the matching brads? I do! These are from the Brights Collection Brads, and just like the ‘yummy’ ribbon from yesterday, these look yummy, too.
I still have to get the candy for these little treats containers, so if you’re coming to my Open House on Saturday morning, you’ll just have to wait and see whether I found the square candies again! (ah, the suspense)
