Candy Treat how tos

Sorry these are delayed.  I had an opportunity come my way, and I had to take yesterday to prepare some projects for it.  I'll share more as it develops.  It's a crafting thing too!  :D  I'm so excited!

Scarecrow Skittles Wrappers
The base is the Two Tags die, SU's BigZ Die # 115954 $21.95
Die cut 2 of the scallop tag.
Score 1/2" from bottom end on each.
Overlap bottom scored sections, attach together with Sticky Strip.
Secure Skittles package with Sticky Strip to inside of one tag.
Staple tags together at top.
Diecut leaves using Leaves #2 Die   #113459  $15.95
Attach 2 to front of tag with glue dots.

1 - scallop circle 1 3/4" Crumb Cake
1 - Jumbo Oval punch - Stamp a section of More Mustard CS with a crackle BG stamp  using Crumb Cake - punch oval from that - cut in half or a little less than half.  I trimmed them again, after I had them cut in half.
1 Modern Label punch shape - punch from same scrap of More Mustard CS
Draw smile with Chocolate Chip or Early Espresso marker.
Cut triangle scrap from Pumpkin Pie.  Attach above smile. 
Attach wiggle eyes with Mono Multi Glue.
Attach 1/2 oval to top of head.  Layer Modern label hat brim over that.
Center between leaves attach with Sticky Strip.
I also tied a bit of fiber yarn around the base before I attached the scarecrow head.

Reindeer Treat
The base is the Two Tags die, SU's BigZ Die # 115954 $21.95
Die cut 1 of the larger tag.
Fold Flap up.
Attach a 1" x 2.75" strip of designer paper to the front.
Attach a 1 3/4" Scallop Circle to tag so the top end tucks under with the flap.
Attach a Real Red 1 3/8" circle. 
Punch one owl.  Trim off the feet.
Punch one snowflake from Chocolate chip CS.  Cut into 3 sections. 
Attach one section behind head for antlers.
Draw smile with Chocolate Chip or Early Espresso marker.
My smiles are all a little lop sided.  They must have been sneaking egg nog, or it was because I did these at 2 am one night.  :)
For the shiny nose I embossed a scrap if Real Red with Clear embossing powder.
Punch out a 1/2" circle from this.
Attach wiggle eyes with Mono Multi Glue.
Attach to tag with Sticky Strip.
Inside to attach any candy treat, use a 1" section of sticky strip
on inside, back of tag.

Peppermint Patty Treats
I used Chocolate Gold Coins inside of these.

Punch 6 1 3/4" Scallop Circle from Black CS.
Punch 6 1 3/4" Scallop Circles from blue dsp or CS.
Stamp a face on white for a snowman that will fit inside the 1 1/4" circle punch. 
It can even be part of a larger image like A Cute Christmas. 
I used the retired Cold Play set. 
For the treat on the left I stamped 2 circles to create a body. 
For the treat on the right I punched 2 snowflakes.

Slide them into the treat bag (I bought these from Clear Bags).
Tie the top off.  I punched out a phrase from the retied Cold Play set,
with the Modern label punch and added a snowflake.

Butterfly Lip Gloss

Die 2 of the largest butterflies from the Beautiful Butterflies SU's Bigz Die  #114507 $21.95  -It is just half a body, so fold your papers in half first.
One of pastel cardstock and one of vellum.
Open the the vellum flat and emboss with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder  #119277  $7.95
Layer these together, attach together at fold with Sticky Strip, fold in half with front facing out.  
Punch a hole through all 4 layers with the Crop A Dile, about 1/4" from fold.
Thread an 8" ribbon through the holes.
Open flat.  Attach lip gloss with Sticky Strip over fold.  Tie ribbon around this.


Snowman Hats
It's full of marshmallows for snowman poop.  You could put anything small inside here.  Even a gift of jewelry!

I cut the tubes that the Decor elements come in into 3" lengths.
Die cut a circle with the Circle Bigz Clear Die  #114533  $19.95 from Black CS.
Punch a 2.5" circle from a post it.  Center it on the die cut circle. 
Cut snips in all around the post it to create flaps.

Attach Sticky Strip around one end of tube.  Set tube on circle (without post it)
Attach flaps by pressing upward onto Sticky Strop tape.
This creates your tube bottom.

Wrap 2 sided or Sticky Strip tape around top and bottom edge of tube.
Take black tissue paper 12" x 9"  Fold in half so it measure 6 " x 9".
Wrap around tube so it overlaps bottom edge by 1/4" to 1/2". 
Attach end with tape after wrapping all the way around the tube.
Carefully tuck tissue down into tube.

Die cut 2 more circles with Circle Bigz Clear Die  #114533  $19.95
Glue together.  Attach to bottom of tube with Mono Multi glue. 
Center tube over the circles and pressed down firmly. 
This will be the brim of the hat.

Tie a 16" piece of 5/8" Real Red grosgrain ribbon around tube.
Attach snowflakes with glue dots.
Fill a Cello Bags 50 ct. #103104 $3.95 with 1/2 cup of small marshmallows.

Twist tie shut.  I folded the bag over 1/3 the tall way so it slid into the tube easier.

The tag is a Real Red Decorative Label punch, a Garden Green Jumbo Oval punch, and the words are cut into a 1" strip, then punched out with the Decorative Label punch.
Glue together hang from twist tie that holds the bag of marshmallows closed.

That's it for now.

Happy stamping!
