It’s official! I love this little Candy Wrapper.
I made this Candy Cane Christmas wrapper as one of four projects for my team meeting tonight. And it is definitely the project that was easiest to create.
I knew as soon as I opened the Candy Cane Christmas specialty designer series paper exactly what colours I would use for this candy wrapper. What makes this paper a specialty paper package is the red glitter on some of the patterns. Can you see it?
I created the candy wrapper from Baja Breeze cardstock another one of the colours included on the Candy Cane Christmas paper. The snowflake was made using the Northern Frost decorative strip for the Big Shot from Blushing Bride paper. And, of course, I had to add a Real Red Glimmer Brad to the center of the snowflake to match the glitter on the paper.
While pink snowflakes are not natural, pink is one of the popular colours for Christmas this year. And on this project it really works.
After making a couple of the wrappers, I have figured out how to make the assembly easier. Here are three tips: with a bone folder or your fingers, crease all of the score lines to make assembly faster, apply sticky strip from side to side at the end of the wrapper skipping over the cut outs, press in and twist the ends with four fingers, one in each space to close.
I plan to use this die year round – New Years, Valentines, Easter, etc. What a great investment.
