I made these for my niece’s 16th b’day! 😀
Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. My niece turned 16…which means someone else special to me is right behind her. Where does the time go?
I thought it was important to stick with tradition and do a SWEET 16 theme. 🙂
How Did I Make That? Read Below…
I found the really BIG SIZE candy bars in the candy aisle at CVS Pharmacy. They weren’t at the front counter like I’d found them in the past. Then I measured the wrapper and just made one the same size using my ATG gun and some paper. 🙂 Cool. I mostly followed what Robyn did here:
Then, using a Stampin’ Up medium sized treat bag, I poured in two regular sized bags of Sour Patch Kids. I know…it’s Sweet 16, why sour? Well, they’re her favorite! At least you can’t tell what the name of the candy is by my new packaging! 😀
After pouring in the candy, I folded over a Polka Dot piece of cardstock from Papertrey Ink and stapled it closed. I covered the stapled areas (both back and front) with K & Co. cardstock. Next, I used my Mini Monograms Cricut Cartridge to cut the circle scallop and polka dotted letter “h”. Actually, I used that cart to do all the things on the bars and the candy.
Now, About the Sweet 16 Card:
I had such a good time making this card. It was the 1st time I had used eyelets in a project. So fun!! And…a great time for me to use my handy, dandy Crop A Dile Big Bite!! I love that thing!!
