Candy Skewer

Andrea Walford is so very creative and the most fun projects to share. I saw her video on how to make this cute candy skewer with the Christmas tree on top and the candy pushed onto the skewer. My plan was to make these for the people I work with for Christmas, but time didn't allow. I finally got to make it yesterday! It's fun and easy to make; even though it gets a little sticky pushing the candy onto the bamboo skewer. The tree is made by punching out 3 circles of each the 3/4"; 1 1/4" and the 1 3/4" punches. Each circle is folded in half, then in half again and then each side is folded back against itself and then punched through the centers using the 1 1/16" punch. The star on top is punched using the small star punch, glittered and adhered to the top of the skewer with mini glue dots. The bag is a cellophane bag approximately 10" long and tied onto the candy portion of the skewer with a silver cord. Aren't these adorable? Try one for yourself. These could be re-vamped for Valentines day, don't you think?
