4th of July wrapped candies

4th of July wrapped candies

Last week I finished a firecracker shaped doll and put some candy with him to give as a gift. So I figured I may as well make a separate video for the candy and save the doll for later.

But I’m so lame, because I didn’t get any good photos of the candy before I gave the gift away. Oh well, there was still plenty of video footage so you can see how the wrapped caramels were assembled. Click the video below for simple instructions.

Super simple instructions for this project:


1. Cut scrapbook paper into 1″ by 2.5″ strips

2. Wrap paper strip around candy and adhere with gluestick

3. cut coordinating cardstock a bit smaller than your bag

4. insert card and candy into bag

5. embellish however you want

For those interested in the materials & tools used, here’s a list: (I’m not using affiliate links today since I’m on the fence about using them at all)

Werther’s soft caramels (found a big bag at Aldi, yay!)
Tim Holtz paper (seasonal pad), twine, and mirrored star
4×6″ ziplock back from Micheal’s crafts
Carl paper cutter (I use this one), scissors, Cropadile hole puncher, ruler
cheap gluestick from dollar tree

Next week I’ll share how the firecracker doll was made. He’s the little guy holding the patriotic candy below.
