So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Candy Stick boxes and Gift cards

Wonders of wonders!!!!! THEY are done!!! All of the gift cards are made....all of the Candy Stick boxes are done...bagged up and ready to be given away!!! What a good project ---wasn't too complicated...went pretty fast...and I'm so PLEASED with the outcome!!! Here are some pics!!!!

Nieces and nephew boxes
I found these short popcorn boxes at Target..2 for $1.00...they work perfectly by adding some tissue paper in the middle! Then the candy sticks fit and stay straight up. I just punched out circles and added some stickers to the toppers. The gift cards are the package sitting in the back.

The adults each got 4 sticks of candy!!! These are the gift cards I made using the Outlines Stamp. I colored with Sakura glaze, glitter and copic markers. Inside I used star spellbinders and a Christmas saying.
Adults boxes.

These are for the 2 youngest niece and nephew...no gift cards. The ornament is also from Target...$1.00 -- filled with candy!

Some adult gift cards.

Here they are all packed up and ready for gifts....some I did in these boxes.....and some are in gift bags. BUT they should all arrive to their destinations safely and NOT loose anything from inside.

Boxed and ready to go
Bagged and ready to go
