Another Use for the Fancy Favor Die

A candy holder using the Fancy Favor die!! Well, at least part of it!!

I think I am the world's worst at seeing an idea online and then forgetting where I saw it. I think the problem is that I will look at several blogs in one night and think that some of the projects are nice. The next day, when I am creating, I start to think about all the projects and combine ideas in my head. Today's project is just that: a combination of ideas I saw here and there. So I will extend my thanks to here and there, whoever they may be!!

For this project I used the Fancy Favor Die, but I did not cut the entire die. I used a piece of paper that was 5.5 x 8" and ran it through the Big Shot using the Textured Impressions #1 Small Dots plate. Hot Tip: Spritz your paper with water or alcohol (dries quicker), and it will make a deeper impression when it embosses! Next I ran the paper through the Big Shot using the Fancy Favor die. I lined the paper up so that it would cut the two gussets (sides of the bag) and one center. That is all you need. For this project I cut all of the bottom flaps off.

I added some Hershey Kisses with Almonds to a small cello bag and tied it off with some leftover Silver Cord that I had. I then used the Heart to Heart punch to punch the front of the candy holder. Lay the bag of candy on the inside of the front of the holder. I added some SNAIL adhesive to the back of the bag to keep it from slipping out and then I used SNAIL and closed the two gussets (the sides) as back flaps. You can see in the picture how these flaps just lay over each other.

To decorate it, I inked two of the hearts with Real Red ink and applied them using a dimensional. I stamped Hugs & Kisses using Chocolate Chip ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, punched it out using an old heart punch I had, and inked the edges using Real Red ink. I loved the sentiment, especially considering the contents of the bag!
