Candy Wrapper Web Treat

Not too too exciting today........FYI: these candy wrappers are the new addition to SU's Big Shot family of dies. You've seen them all over the stamp web sites. I thought I should try them, too. Lots of possibilities using this die. I had to hand cut and hand score one similar last year.........thank goodness for the die. They finish 4-1/2" x 1-3/8" x 1-3/8". The actual part to hold the candy is 2" x 1-3/8" x 1-3/8". These candy wrapper do not need ribbon - isn't THAT great!!!!!Ribbon on each end is obviously optional but the ends do stay closed.

The Spooky version:

Here's another version:

Stamp "Spooky" on Old Olive, punch out, sponge edge, then attach to wrapper with a dimensional. Attach plastic orange spider with a mini glue dot. Stamp have a wicked Halloween" using black ink on Cherry Cobbler CS, punch out, sponge edge with black ink, attach to candy wrapper with a dimensional. Attach plastic bat with a mini glue dot. Those plastic spider and bat are originally rings - simply cut off the ring part...............

By using the Decorative Strip Platform and the Decorative Strip Cutting Pads through the Big Shot, embossing will be only in the center of the candy wrapper. This idea came from one of the demonstrators - I will update my blog when I figure out who it was...............
Update 9/16/2010: see Meg Loven's blog ( for her video posted on 9/3/2010 for this technique

This is what the embossed candy wrapper should look like.......fold lines remain visible....yay!

Apply sticky tape to one end:
Assemble candy wrapper:
Use a dauber to lightly sponge the embossed web design. Attach the punched out message and project is complete.
