After calling my local party supply stores for Sixlets which had none, I searched online. They were pretty spendy to get batches of red/green/white candies, so I kind of let it drop. THEN weeks later, I was at the Dollar Tree and found bags of Christmas colored Sixlets! Woohoo!
Here is the process1. The test tubes hold 12 candies, each candy pack has 8 (not 6, go figure?). I didn't even have to touch the candies with my hands, I just snipped off the end of several bags and squeezed the candies into the tube randomly. I made sure that there were not 2 colors in a row, cause I am ADD like that.
2. Then I put a bit of score tape around the top and added a strip of designer paper
3. Then I made tags and tied them on around the paper
Here is a pic of my fancier tags, these use baker's twine, DP, bling, etc, all stamps are from Verve.
I needed 8 for Bill's work, so I made easy peasy- all stamping tags -no bling or ribbons as I am sure they will be tossed. I stamped a sentiment from Verve's O' Christmas Tree and the snowflakes are from Winter Wonder. I used regular curling ribbon to tie them on. Even without all the extras, they are still cute huh?
That's it for today. I am working on some tags and gourmet popcorn bags for my neighbors and teachers. I will be back soon with those! Thanks for stopping by!
