Pattern - Chocolate Caramel Candy

  • 1. Punch eight squares from desired holiday papers. Punch one circle from solid red card stock; stamp Licorice sentiment on circle. Apply glitter glue to each scallop as shown.
  • 2. Randomly adhere paper squares to bucket. Cut and adhere thin strip of desired holiday paper to handle.
  • 3. Lightly drizzle card stock circle with Quick-Dry Tacky Adhesive for an "iced" look. Adhere circle to center of collaged squares; place adhesive just in center so tag appears to float on bucket.
  • 4. Fill bucket as desired. If making homemade candies, wrap individually in small pieces of waxed paper and tie ends with ribbons of choice.
