PATRIOTIC AND CANDY - WHAT COULD BE BETTER?!

Hi all! Well, I made this little bag for a friend of mine who totally loves the Fourth of July AND has a sweet tooth so I filled a cello bag with red and blue Mike and Ikes, which are her fave candy! The little box is a template I received from my upline - isn't it cute??!! I wish I had a link to share, but I don't - if I find one, I will make sure to post it! It was fairly quick and easy to make and would be a fun project for a stamp camp! I hope you all are having a fabulous week so far, I am pretty sure I am - LOL! Here is the recipe - don't forget to leave me a comment for your entry into the drawing for a gift certificate over at Coconuts! Until tomorrow!
Box Recipe: (all items Stampin' Up!)
Paper - Ruby Red card stock, Western Sky Designer Series Paper
Stamps - none!
Inks - none!
Accesssories - Large Star punch, Jumbo Pewter eyelets, Real Red Ribbon, small cello bag, Red Sticky tape, mini glue dots

Love this, especially the candy, hehehe my sweet tooth is screaming at me lately, probably cause it knows it can't have any right now!
