I am getting ready to be a participant at a Fall Fling next weekend. You might ask, "What is a Fall Fling?" Well a Fall Fling is an event put on by one of my friends who will be spotlighting home based businesses for her friends to do a little holiday shopping and get together. There will be 7 other home based businesses and myself spotlighting Stampin' Up. A lot of the women attending will be moms, so I wanted to showcase something that would be practical. I am planning on displaying some of the beautiful cards we make with our products, but wanted to make these cute cello candy bags.
The topper is made with the new stamp set Stitched Stockings and the Stocking Builder Punch from the new Holiday Mini catalog. I plan on having all the 1x8 cello bags filled with candy already, and then the women can stamp the toppers and put them together. These cello bag treats are great for Halloween, school classroom parties, birthday parties, fun Secret Santa items, etc. I have mine filled with 3 different candies so far - mini Tootsie Rolls, Jolly Ranchers and Pixie Sticks. Other suggestions include M&M's, Skittles, pencils, Candy Corn, Red Hots. You can see where I am going with these, they are perfect for any holiday!
As an extra incentive to see the practicality of our products, I am going to have the 5 cards I am planning for my next Stamp Camp in November which uses the Stitched Stocking stamp set and Stocking Builder punch on display. The 5 cards will include not only 2 Christmas themed cards as expected from these products, but a baby card, a young child's birthday card and a get well card.
Enjoy your evening!
