I wanted to make some candy bag toppers for 4th of July this year since I've found some fun patriotic themed candies. I used the USA 1776 set, and started by making a rosette, for this first package of Gummy Bears, and included a mini-star embossed background and one of my favorite sentiments in this set. I love what it stands for and how Claire fonted it.
Okay, aren't these candles just the sweetest!!! I LOVE them, and thought they would go beautifully on the packaging of these super fun twizzlers. I framed them with the star frame image and added the "Happy 4th" sentiment along the side. I also added a bit of sparkle cause that's what this holiday has a lot of. :)
Tip: If you'd like the staples hidden, as I have on this package, just staple the base (Mine is white), then adhere a decorative panel to the top to hide them.
