"Sweet Candy"


Is this the cutest ever! I made the candy by rolling strips of quilling paper. I glued one of each color together and then put it in the quilling tool and wrapped it around. Then I put diamond glaze (or crystal effects) on the top of the rolled paper so it looks shiny like real candy. I finished by wrapping the candy with saran wrap and tied the ends with silver cord. Super cute ha?

Stamps: So Very
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Yo Yo Yellow, non SU pattern paper
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Corner rounder punch for the scallops, saran wrap, silver cord, quilling paper, quilling tool, diamond glaze

This is a picture of the quilling strips and the quilling tool. I got them both at Michael's. I think $10 total for both items.

And to think I was about to get rid of the quilling strips I bought five years ago and have not yet used....actually I have some other color papers that would look better as candy and all I have to do is run them through the shredder. Thanks for the inspiration.

OMG Rochelle! I have always been curious about quilling but thought I just couldn't start a new craft, but, I think I just might have to use my next coupon on some new toys. Thanks for sharing this adorable card.
