Gingerbread Candy Wrapper

A fun way to give a little treat or a small gift for Christmas is to wrap it up in this sweet little Candy Wrapper.  I think it would also make some cute homemade tree ornaments made up in custom colors of your choice.

The new Holiday Mini Catalog offers some fun new shapes for cutting matching stamped images.  All it takes is a few cranks of the Big Shot and you end up with a perfectly cut out image.  Easy!  You can get the bundle which includes this stamp set & coordinating Framelits for $36.95 [W]; $32.95[C].

The "frosting" trim is cut from the Tasteful Trims XL Die.

I had been curious about this Candy Wrapper Die, looking longingly at it in the catalog and wondering if it would behave when I went to close the ends.  Enough wondering.  The trick is to fold all the score lines, adhere the long side and flatten, fold the triangular score lines on the ends, then when you twist and push in with thumb and 3 fingers grasping the end, it just works.  There are several utube videos out there that show how to do this.

I always use Sticky Strip to close a 3D item, so I won't have to worry about it popping open randomly.  That Sticky Strip lives up to its name!
