"Hershey Stick Holder"

I am seriously addicted to making these. They are super easy and super fun and super fast to make. I saw them on someones blog and knew I had to make them. For the life of me I can't remember where I saw them to give them credit. I always put their name and blog address on the directions when I copy them but I didn't do that this time cause her name was watermarked on the photo, which I can't read.
Anyway. I started out making three because there are 9 Hershey Sticks that come in a pack. Then 3 turned into 6 and 6 into 10. I don't know if I can stop. I got the Hershey Sticks at Target. They are $1.99 per pack but for some reason (and it wasn't cause they were expired) the regular ones were on clearance for $1.38 So I bought a bunch. They are great for just having around for something quick to give some one. In fact my daughter wanted a birthday card to bring to school for her friend who has a birthday this weekend. So I found a card and gave her one of these. Perfect. The greeting stamp is from Hero Arts and I picked the one that says Just Because. Then I can give them out, just because.

Here is the side view of them so you can see what they look like.

I am also posting the directions and photo of how I made them so you can get addicted too. You don't need double sided paper because I think they pretty much have to rip them open to get to the candy. Unless you close them with ribbon.

Stamps: Hero Arts
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie Brilliant Blue, Whisper White, Jersey Shore, Bo Bunny, Other DP
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie Brilliant Blue
Accessories: SU Scallop Punch, SU Circle Punches, Scor-Tape, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Cord, Small Fiskers Hand Held Hole Punch, Hershey Sticks

You can find the Hershey Sitcks at the grocery store, Target, Walmart or Walgreens. Here is what the box looks like. They also have carmel, Mint, Dark. There are also other brands like Butterfinger and Nestle Crunch. I usually see them on the top shelf at the stores.
