So my sister had a Pampered Chef party last night! Wow, the food was FAB-U-LOUS! The product was great of course & I learned what is needed & learned all the great benefits of becoming a consultant…..NO, I am not signing up to be a consultant. There is not enough time to do all the paper crafting I want to do much less do this…..plus I don’t really care to cook! My husband has talked about it before & thought I’d get him the info. HE is the COOK in the house. I will happily give him the kitchen any time! LOL!
Well, my sister was looking for ideas to give her guest a little thank you for coming to the party. So, of course, I volunteered to make something using my Cricut. I’ve had a Candy Bar Box that I have been wanting to use for a while now. I got the file from SVG Cuts, it was one of their free files. I highly recommend their files as they are easy to cut!
I used Autumn colored cardstock (Rust, Olive, Golden Rod & Chocolate colors) for the base of the holder. I did have to re-size the container to ensure the candy bar fit snugged. The paper was from my Paper Studio stash I’ve had from Hobby Lobby. I then printed the “Thanks” text from my computer onto cream colored cardstock. I layered a burgundy background behind the cream cardstock. I quickly made a paper pieced die cut of a chef’s hat & assembled them together & pop dotted on top of the candy holder. She loved them as well as her guest. I also totally impressed her Pampered Chef demonstrator (who is the director in our area). So I was happy!
