BLOG HOP!!!

Welcome to our 2 day "Holly Jolly" blog hop! Thanks for landing at Bugjuiced by Debbie from  Carri's Blog "Abusybee"


Please make sure to leave a comment from each blog you visited for a chance to win a prize package from Scrapadabadoo! There also will be a 2nd grand prize!! You must come back to each blog the 2nd day and leave comments to be eligible for the 2nd grand prize. Third grand prize is a Holiday stamp set courtesy of "Pink Cricut"

My project is definitely a hybrid project. Its alittle scrapping a little pc work and really quick.



Todays blog hop project is "Gift Idea" so I was just thinking about stocking stuffers! I made two really cute candybar wrappers that were wrapped in paper from "My Minds Eye" Sweet Dreams Holiday Avenue paper pack. The wrappers are cut 5.5" x 5.5". Love this paper! I took pretty ribbon that I bought at Michaels (.79 cents a roll) at a haul the other day.  One has paisley's in gold, silver and a litght blue on one of the candybars which if you know me you know I love paisley! They had all the ribbon 60% off so I bought about 12-13 rolls of christmas colored ribbons and designs. The tags I cut on my cricut at 2" from the cartridge "Tags, Bags, Boxes and More".



I used some trim on the bottom of one of the bars from Jolee's. I had some foil envelopes from years ago that I made alot of custom candybar wrappers. You can just cut a piece of foil 5.5" x 5.5". This step can be eliminated but it makes the wrapped bar look much better.

For the bag topper I printed a little saying and added a graphic from Pccrafter.com I cut the bag topper at 4.5" and then folded it in half. I punched a hole in the corner to just tie some pretty ribbon on. Then added some miniature marshmellows!


Its a simple project but a cute one that will make fun stocking stuffers! I hope you enjoy it!

What cute ideas & I love the papers you used.
(P.S. I actually make a candy that is called Snowman Poop- but I renamed it "Dirty Snowballs" cause it's a little easier to eat something with that name, lol)

great gift ideas. I'm always at a loss for what to do every year and not repeat what I did already. Snowman poop is always a hit. I love to put mine in a coffee mug with snow theme on it. Goes over really well with school teachers.

You're right the foil is an added extra step but it gives the candy bar a more fancier and finished look. And I've been wanting to do the snowman poop. It's Soo cute.
