Christmas Candy Quickies!

Here are two quick candy ideas to put at a Christmas place setting or use as  stocking stuffers for the kiddies!  The first is a peppermint wonderland with peppermint candy balls which are placed inside Stampin’ Up!’s medium cellophane bags.

Peppermint Swirls

The cello bags are just right for treats, favors or gifts. You can twist tie the top like I did on this bag and add a tag or handcraft your own topper for extra creativity.  These are available for $4.95 for 50 bags. Sweet deal!

Supplies:  Stamp Set: Button, Button and Teeny Tiny Wishes; Cardstock:  Whisper White, Real Red and Pear Pizzazz; Ink:  Real Red; Accessories:  Large Cellophane Bags, Paper Piercing Tool, Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Punches:  1-3/8″, 1-1/4″ and 1″, Oval Punch: 3/4″x 15/16″, Linen Thread, Bold Brights Glimmer Brad and of course Peppermint Candy.

The second idea makes a great stocking stuffer especially for boys or as a little something to give out to the kids at school. 

Test Tube Christmas

The test tubes and corks can be found at www.lcmlab.com for about 50 cents each. Please e-mail me privately if you would like the sizes of the tubes and corks I used here.  I filled them with mini snow cap candy, but red, white and green m&m’s or gum balls would also work.  I added little hand-stamped tags with ribbon and tinsel trim to the tops.  The tinsel trim is available in the Holiday Mini Catalog in Clear and Silver -10 yards for $7.95.

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Punch Pals; Cardstock: Whisper White; Ink: Real Red and Black Stazon; Markers:  Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, and Real Red; Accessories:  XL Tag Punch, Modern Label Punch, 5/8″ Satin Real Red Ribbon, 5/8″ Organza Whisper White Ribbon, Clear Tinsel Trim, Basic Rhinestones, Test Tubes and Mini Snow Cap Candy.
