Christmas Candy Wrappers

I thought I'd show you the little candy wrappers I have made for the Christmas table this year. I have used the SU! Bigz L Candy Wrapper Die and ran it through my Cuttlebug {using the extended plates} using some red CS, I then assembled the boxes, with some difficulty I might add! The ends are a bit tricky. I have printed off everyone's names, using the Fabulous 50's font, and punched out using an SU! Oval Punch. I have decorated this oval using holly leaves cut from lime CS made from the EK Success holly punch and berries from rhinestones coloured with an R27 Copic marker. The oval is added to the box with a 3D foam pad.

And what is inside these candy wrappers? small reindeer chocolates from Hotel Chocolat - so cute!

CS: Papermania, Paperchase, Papertrey Ink. TOOLS: Stampin' Up! Bigz L die, Stampin' Up! Oval Punch, EK Success Mini Holly Punch, Copic Marker. EMBELLISHMENTS: Rhinestones from stash.

Thanks for visiting today, are you all ready for the big day yet?
I still have all my wrapping up to do!


  1. These are fab Michelle, the font you chose is great and I love that little holly punch, have a lovely Christmas!

  2. Gorgeous crackers Michelle. I made mine this year, but cheated and bought them John Lewis! I used ribbons and things from my stash to pretty them up. Perhaps next year I will start completely from scratch! I do like a homemade cracker.

    Enjoy your Christmas celebrations.


  3. They are lovely Michelle...!
