As I type these words I'm sitting here totally amazed it is November! Every year the days seem to fly by and Christmas comes way too fast! Our church is having a craft and bake show on November 19th. So I have been busy making items for this as I do every year. This year though I thought I would share my creations on my blog. I do hope I can inspire you to make some crafty goodies for Christmas this year. But...shh...I am getting older and it seems sometimes I have a hard time remembering what I made in the past! Thus if I put it on my blog I can refer to it next year to jog my memory....hopefully!
A friend of mine was explaining how she saw these candy bars wrapped to look like Rudolph on the internet but she couldn't remember where she saw them. So I headed to Pinterest and found these adorable candy bar wrappers made by Ally Egas. Click HERE for more info. So went about duplicating here treats with supplies I had around the house.
bells and boughs stamp set using Momento Cottage Ivy ink. Then used a Copic marker to draw the line wrapping around the candy bar to form a collar so to speak. A little bit of gold Stickles added to the center of the bow finishes this treat. It would be perfect for stocking stuffers!
Oh and just a tip. The hardest part of assembly are the antlers since my leaf had an itty bitty stem. It is easier to apply a glue dot to the leaf stems and add them to the candy wrapper prior to applying to the candy bar. I also added a piece of clear tape on the inside across both antlers (stems) to secure well. I lined up the antlers by centering them with the bow I had stamped previously.
I hope this gets you in the gift making mood! I have several more ideas so stay tuned for them!
Thanks for stopping by! Please come back again!
