No Bones About It

Crazy for Candy

Of course I always make samples for each day of the release week. It’s something I really love to do and look forward to sharing the ideas I think of as each product is created. When I created this company I was really focused on being able to share what I love to do, and making it easy for ANYONE to replicate. I love the fact that our products are user friendly for all skill levels, and that you don’t need a ton of craft supplies to create some amazing gifts. If you have a printer, some cardstock, scissors and glue, you can create almost everything we share! Even better is that we always offer products that not only coordinate together, for those of you not knowing what to put together or don’t want to think too much, but also that all these products can be mixed and matched together, and each template offers much versatility. I love to share the ways each product can be used in a different way, and I hope you all enjoy that as well.

That being said, let me share my project for today! It used a mix of older products to create a new gift ‚ô•

Cold Winter, Warm Heart

If you want to really WOW people with a super simple project this Winter, then you will love this one.

I love giving Rafaello’s! They are these white chocolate truffle like treats,¬†with¬†crispy wafer-like shell, rolled¬†in coconut, with an Almond in the center. They look like yummy snowballs.

Hence my snowman creation.

I created the Crazy for Candy ¬©¬†template from white cardstock. Then I took the snowman pieces from the Topped Off ¬©¬†template. to make my candy jar just like a snowman. Obviously the pieces were enlarged to fit, but this is an idea that can be used even if you don’t have that template. I used the eyes from the Crazy for Candy ¬©¬†template, and hand-drew my mouth. Sponged on some rosey cheeks ūüėÄ

You can use some simple shapes to make your¬†own snowman, or don’t forget¬†that you can use¬†*ANY* of the characters from our Pretty Impressions Setsto make your own character such as a penguin, snowman, Santa, Elf, fairy, gnome, woodland creature….to name just a few possibilities.

The hat was cut from the strip pattern in the Candy Claus © collection. I added a 3 D snowball to the top of the hat, and some glitter to the hat trim.

NOTE: The tag actually DOES match the hat in person. I don’t know if its my photo software or the shadow from the template, but it doesn’t match in photos. WEIRD! Its red, green and blue. Just had to point that out because it’s making me CRAZY!! I took a million photos with the SAME result. I’m over it.

I tied some pretty glittery green ribbon around the “neck” of my snowman, to be like a scarf. For my tag I used the Well Rounded ¬© set for my tag, and clipped some ornament patterned paper along the bottom from the Candy Claus ¬©¬†collection¬†. The mittens on the tag¬†were from the Homemade Holiday ¬© set, and the sentiment is from the Warm Sentiments ¬© set. It was just perfect for my snowy sweet treat-box.¬†¬†The tag¬†was cut out using the Well Rounded Tag ¬©¬†cut file. I added a heart sticker to the lower right hand corner too!

You can see the mittens from the Topped Off ¬©¬†template were also used.¬† You could use some twigs, or make your own mittems from felt as well. It’s all about creativity. There is NO right or wrong way to create something, There are NO limitations either. Use what you want, to make something into your own creation. These are great projects for kids to do too. They could DRAW on the face and mittens! Just have FUN with it.

We will return with more tomorrow, so please come back, as we share more projects! You never know when you just might find the perfect idea for something you’ve been wanting to give.

See you then.
