A Sweet Thank You



This week's challenge theme at Sassy Cheryl's is brought to us again by our very own Sassy Judy! She wants us to make some yummy candy favors. Fun right??

I made this candy bar slider for my friend Kim ( Oak Pond Creations). She was keeping an eye on my furry babies while we were in Atlanta this past weekend. They love their Aunt Kim!



I used a Hershey bar, but you could really use it for any candy bar. I just like the Hershey bar because it is flat and gives you more surface area. Just punch wholes on each side of one end and run your ribbon through. Insert the candy bar and it pushes the ribbon down with it. Tie your bow and it is ready for gifting. As your giftee pulls the ribbon, it slides the candy bar out of the wrapper. Easy peasy!!
I used a cropped version of Cheryl's Sweet Pea image. The whole image is even cuter that her adorable hat. I just wanted to use the butterfly to match the butterfly paper I picked.
This weeks challenge is sure to be a fun one. I hope to see your cards on the challenge blog. Just make sure you use a Sassy Cheryl image. Gook luck and Happy Crafting!

What a cute and creative idea. I've seen the wrappers but not the slide... and the wrappers I've seen are nothing as intrinsic as your design.
