Bliss Candy holder

This is a re-make of a past candy holder we made in Technique class a while back. Well, really it was probably almost two years ago?! They held a skinny pack of Trident gum that had the eight pieces. They were usually easy to find at Target in a package of ten packs, for a couple bucks. Then they stopped making those size packages. Of course, I figured that out when I went to make a bunch of them and couldn't find them anywhere! Anyway, back to the project... I decided that I still really like that package holder and wanted to find something else to fit in it. So, this is it! It kinda seems like a lot of package for the little treat that it holds inside, but it was fun to do! On the outside of the front though, (before you see inside) is Baja Breeze carstock, Chocolate Chip cardstock, Holiday Treasures DSP and Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon. The saying is from the set, To You and Yours.

When you lift the flap, the inside has a Bliss Candy wrapped in coordinating Holiday Treasures DSP. It's a 7/8" x 3" piece stuck around with mini glue dots on each end. Then I glue dotted it inside a Scallop Square punch out! I put another smidge of Holiday Treasures DSP under the punch out just to show off hte "scallop square hole" a little better. Then I added a Felt Flurry Snowflake with a rhinestone brad for a little bling! The little white thing is the other part of the velcro piece to close it up. So, yep, it is a lot of packaging for one little piece of chocolate - but I like how the candy fits just right inside that scallop square!
The pattern is a lot the same as the gum holder treat we did a while back, but email me if you want more specifics.
Hope you have a great week - Thanks for stopping in~
