Candy Candy Everywhere!

Disclaimer: I lost my camera a couple of months ago, and am borrowing one that I don't know how to use as well, so my photos are blurry and not as good as I would like.

This week's challenge from Lauren is to use one of the my timeless templates to create a package for candy.

I decided to use the Milk Made template (small version) to package up some Jelly Bellies. A couple of weeks ago, Deron and I took a road trip to Chicago, and on the way, we stopped at a Jelly Belly warehouse

We bought 3 bags of Belly Flops that we had planned to repackage and give as gifts to friends.

Here is what I made.

I used kraft cardstock and stamped the images from Little Pieces (SU) in bright colours.

Then I used stickles and liquid pearls to add some dimension to the box.

I love the people that can make very elaborate and multi layered cards and gifts, but that is just not me. I like the quick and simple projects that can easily be re-produced. This fits in that category.

Please visit the rest of the design team, and play along with our candy gift box challenge.

So you were in MY neck of the woods eh? Jelly Belly is a fun place to go and these milk made templates are perfect for packing those sweet treats. I love the added pearls,glitter etc that you put on your tiny stamps. Makes them really shine.

Great project Tamara -- I love the little bit of 'glitz' to bring out the fun pattern you made on the paper. :)

This is so cute, Tamara :) Love the little stamps you used in different colors on the kraft paper to resemble the jelly beans! Quick and easy is always a great selling point as well! Who doesn't love that?!
