I've been making these Fudge Treats for several years now. This year, I decided to change it up a bit, and just use regular sized candy bars!
Isn't it cute? Here it is "open":
Here's how to make these SUPER easy treats:
Here's what you'll need (click on pic to make it bigger!):
I used the Scentsational Christmas Stamp Set and Real Red classic ink. But, you can decorate any way you choose!! (leave me a comment so I can see your ideas!)
Cut and score your Real Red cardstock, then fold and adhere closed. You'll have two open ends.
Wrap your designer paper (I used a design from the Snow Festival Designer Paper) around the Real Red sleeve and adhere.
Now, punch a hole in the top of the Real Red Sleeve:
I used the 1/4" punch found in the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. I punched one side, then used that hole as a guide to punch the other side.
Now, print out the Homemade Christmas Fudge poem:
I found this poem in an old Paper Crafter's Magazine, and I created this file. I did NOT write the poem!
Trim your poem, then layer onto your Gumball Green cardstock and attach to your Real Red sleeve.
Insert your Gumball Green 1/4" Sweater Trim (use about 18") through both holes.
Then, insert your candy bar--use it to "push" your sweater trim into the sleeve:
insert completely, so that you can't see the candy bar:
then tie a know in your sweater trim:
You'll want the know fairly close to the opening, to keep the candy bar from slipping out the bottom.
Now you can simply pull up on the ribbon to make the candy bar appear!!
I told you it was easy!! Can't wait to see what you do!!!
