Valentine Candies

Oh my gosh - are these not the cutest things ever???  Sometimes I get so excited with myself.  I love little things, I love making and receiving little things...so FUN!

Do you want to know how I made them so tiny?

 1.  Start by filling the 1 x 8 Cello Bags with candy.  These are Sixlets and I used 5 for each candy.  Make a 'shooter' from cardstock to get the candy into the bag more efficiently.  My dog was so happy I missed so often!
2.  Separate the candy to both ends of the bag.  
3.  Tie each end with ribbon and insert tag.
4.  Cut the ends apart.  Trim the flap section and cut open the bottom section.  Fluff both new ends!

Cardstock:  Whisper White
Stamp Set:  129639 (w) 129642 (c) Pretty Petites (FREE Sale-a-bration choice!)
Accessories:  129405 Petite Curly Label Punch (FREE Sale-a-bration choice!), 129291 Melon Mambo 3/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon, 127134 1 x 8 Cello Bags
