I'll be showing some of the fun things you can make with Stampin' Up!'s new Big Shot Candy Wrapper Die.
On the left is a Back To School or teacher appreciation gift using the apples from the Tart and Tangy set as well as the adorable school boy and girl from the Greeting Card Kids set in the big catalog. To make the hostess thank you candy wrapper on the right, I simply used the Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper with the Friends Never Fade Set. The new punches and dies really made these round tags quick and easy!
Halloween is looming on the horizon, so here is a sweet Halloween example using the Fang-tastic set. You don't have to only make a wrapped candy shaped container. You can also make a few cuts and seal one end of the die into a flat bottom and leave the top open as shown in the Holiday Mini. To fill the mini bag, I made white chocolate covered (dyed orange, purple and green) pretzel stick Witches' Wands for extra fun. Her wand is simply a piece strip of Certainly Celery cardstock with Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the end. I paper-pieced her hat so that she would fit on the container with just a little out of the box, and the Rich Razzleberry 3/8 inch taffeta ribbon sweetens the pot. I love this set.
I love the way the peppermint striped paper design from the Candy Cane Christmas Designer Serier Paper makes the candy wrapper die remind me of a peppermint in fluffy, scrunchy cellophane. Just add a cozy scarf-wrapped penguin tag from the Tag Alongs set and a quick Christmas treat is ready for giving!
