This cute little holder for a square of Ghirardelli candy was easy to make with a few scored lines and some tape. The tag features our new Holiday Calories Don't Count stamp, 178, which I embellished with a die cut snowflake.
I used a 4 5/8" scalloped circle die (from the now discontinued Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circles Nestabilities Dies) and scored to fit the candy.
I recently purchased a French fry box die and found it is the perfect size to use our circle stamps as an embellishment. I used our Halloween circle, I09, and the cute tag on top features our new Eat Your Vegetables stamp, C35. Who wouldn't love a bag of candy corn with dry roasted nuts for a snack. Yum!

Our new reindeer noses stamp, C36, paired with our reindeer stamp, E137, makes an adorable tag to add to the candy tube filled with Whoppers and Atomic FireBalls.
The mission to purchase Atomic FireBalls led me to 8 stores with no success and finally the 9th store, Hobby Lobby, was a success. If you don't have a Hobby Lobby, I found a candy called Cherry Sours at Target and also at a Jelly Belly bulk display that are similar in size to the FireBalls.
Our new fall designs will be online tomorrow. It's never to early to start planning!

Front and side view of this fun little treat pouch -- another cute project to make with our
E149 Snowman face.
Start with a 5" x 5" piece of lightweight cardstock and add the patterned papers and face as shown below.
I inked and stamped one dot from the face to make the buttons. B06 Holly was stamped in black and colored in with green and red.
The green strips are 5/8" x 7/8" x 5" and the red belt is 5/8" x 5" plus a piece for the tie. Black embroidery floss is the fringe.
On the reverse, use adhesive on the side back edge and the top edge and the bottom edge. First attach the side forming a cylinder. Glue the top edge flat, taking care to not let the bottom glue shut. Insert treat and then fold the body the opposite direction and seal the bottom.
A crimper is cute used on the top and bottom edges if your paper is not too thick.
