Wicked Challenge #3 Candy Cradle

This is the 3rd and last Wicked Challenge #WKD1209C being posted on the Split Coast Stampers site that I am histing. This Candy Cradle treat holder is the most simplest to make using a SU Bog Shot Scallop Square Die and a Punch............It took less than 10 minutes to make. This treat is filled with those Gold Ball Candies but a Package of Rolos, or Necco Wafers or even a Granola Bar would easily fit, too.

I have enjoyed your challenges and will get to creating copies very very soon.

Your work is just fabulous and if I don't tell you so every post it is only because I'm being lazy. Thanks for sharing your talent!

I love it and they would be cute all over my little 2 foot, Roscoe (the Christmas tree and a lot of other things eating dog) proof tree. I will be making these. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.
