Welcome to another day of "cute" projects featuring Peachy Keen Stamps. I decided to try the stamps on some flowers and I just love the way they turned out. I used the flowers for a card that you can see over on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog.
I used the "peachified" flowers to decorate some candy for a little favor bag. These are "Nuggets" candies and they are fun to wrap and decorate for tiny gifts. The decorative paper is cut in strips that are 1 x 3 inches and then simply wrapped around the candy and adhered on the back.
The smiling face is from the Everyday Character Face Assortment (PK-490). I arranged the nuggets as they would be placed in the bag and then added the flowers. Each face has a tiny pink pearl nose (from Creative Charms).
I cut a piece of pink cardstock at 2 1/2 x 3 inches to make a backer for the bag. (The bags I use are 3 x 4 inches - you would adjust to suit the size if you use a different bag). This helps to keep the candy in place and adds another punch of color.
To create the bag topper, I cut a piece of the same paper used to wrap the candy at 3 x 3 inches and folded it in half. I used a Martha Stewart border punch to create a decorative edge on the front.
A large binder clip will hold everything together while you punch two holes and thread some ribbon through from front to back.
The ribbons should cross in the back and then come to the front through the opposite holes. I use about a 6 inch length of ribbon and then trim the ends. If you have a lot of treats to make up this will conserve the ribbon - bows take a lot more ribbon to finish!
You could add a message on the back of the pink cardstock - or stamp more faces!
Remember, you can leave comments on my posts here and the coordinating posts on the Peachy Keen blog all week for a chance to win the PK-590 Blushing Bride Interchangeable Faces set.
A special note for my overseas friends and readers - Most of you know that I am also on the Design Team for Scrappy-Go-Lucky which is based in Australia. Scrappy-Go-Lucky works with Peachy Keen and sells Peachy Keen stamps to the Australian and UK markets.
In honor of my Guest Designer week, Mandy has set up a special code of PKDI which will take 10% off your order of Peachy Keen Stamps. This code is good only for Australia and the UK and will expire Sunday, July 3rd at midnight (Boston time). For those of you in Australia or the UK, this would be a perfect time to add to or start a collection of these great stamps!
Tomorrow will be my last Peachy Keen Guest Designer day. I wonder which project I should share...
