Candy Wrapper Die

I finally got the Candy Wrapper die a couple of weeks ago and it's quickly become one of my favorite dies. I made a bunch of these for little hand outs during the Christmas Season. You can put chocolates in them or small gifts. I've been putting chocolate in mine :-). 
To make these, I die cut the Candy Wrapper and embossed just down the center of my die cut so that the ends are not embossed. After embossing them, I added some gold ink with a sponge dauber to make the embossing stand out. The gold really brings out the red and makes them look so rich. I stamped a sentiment and punched it out with the Small Oval punch and added a gold snowflake on a dimensional from the Northern Frost strip die. Tied the ends with gold cord and done!! Easy peasy...and fast! Thanks for stopping by today. I know everyone is busy- Christmas is almost here!!!! Have a wonderful day today!!
