I made this little candy holder right after Christmas with some Ghirardelli chocolates that were on sale at Target the day after Christmas. I bought two bags of them because the wrapper is PINK!!! My personal favorite, and the perfect color for my Valentine treats! This is a “re-make” from last year using the Love You Much set. For those of you that look at the Chic ‘n Scratch Blog by Angie, you will see a similar treat that was posted yesterday. I am tempted to say “great minds think alike”………but she is so much more creative than I am! After all, the candy holder from last year came from her. I wouldn’t even know how to do them without her tutorial! I think she must have a little more time to stamp than I do………or maybe she doesn’t do any other hobbies like I do……..but I love too many different things! If you are not familiar with her site……….please go there! She is one incredibly awesome demonstrator!
Supplies Used: Love You Much stamp set and DSP; Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla; Ink: Close to Cocoa, Riding Hood Red; Accessories: Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Scallop Circle Punch.
Special Note: I was making this from “memory” and did not make it “tall” enough, so that my candy was sticking out a little bit at the top. I still wanted to show you the sample, but my dimensions are a little off. Just follow the tutorial by Angie, or give me a day to dig for my CORRECT dimensions and I will post another one. That is what I get for being lazy and not looking for them at the time.
