Candy gifts

Happy Valentines Day!

 Today I'm back to show you the presents I made for the secretaries at my office.  I found this post through Pinterest and really wanted to give it a try.  I didn't want to make a traditionally Valentiney gift for the secretaries- that might be kind of weird- so this seemed like something fun I could use.

I cut three pieces of colored cardstock down to 4x6, and three pieces of white cardstock slightly smaller.  I stamped the sentiments on each of the white cardstocks (using Elle's Studio's Cameron font for the Junior Mints and two different fonts from Lawn Fawn on the other two).  The Junior Mints were so big that I had to use the cardstock to cover the whole box, so to make up for it I traced and cut the word "Mint" with my Cameo.  Then I taped the candies on where they belonged.

To store the candies, I bought this bag from the Silhouette Store.  I used white cardstock to make the bag- be prepared, it takes a few sheets- and then used some patterned paper from the KI Memories Classic Prints paper pad to make the decorative panels.
