A Little Chalk Talk & Some Adorable Backpacks

Channeling my inner Lorri Heiling here with a copy of her darling Chalk Talk Framelit Candy Pouches.  We made these last week at my local downline meeting.

Chalk Talk Candy Holder

Cut Witches Brew DSP to 2-1/2” x 5-1/2”.  Score at 3-1/2”

Cut Pumpkin Pie Cardstock to 2-3/8” x 3-5/8”

6” Basic Black Chevron ribbon

5” White Baker’s Twine

9” 1/8” Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain

1.      Fold DSP on the score line and place just inside the cutting line of the Chalk Talk Framelit.

2.      Use the Scallop Border Punch on the pocket side.

3.      Adhere the top and bottom of the DSP to the cardstock leaving room for the ribbon to slide underneath.

4.      Place candy in the pocket and tie ribbon attaching the little tag.

5.      Slide a Mini Glue Dot behind the ribbon against the cardstock if needed.

6.      Embellish with a jewel on the exclamation point.

7.      Trim the corners of the cardstock to match the Chalk Talk Framelit.

8.      Punch 1/4” hole in top of candy holder.

9.      Slide ribbon through the hole and pull both sides to the top.  Use the Baker’s Twine to tie the ribbons closed.  Trim ends.

Look what my downline and friend Penny Smiley made with the same pattern using this month's Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Isn't this adorable?  I'm in love with this little bicycle!
