If you've arrived here from Teresa's blog, your hopping right along.  If not, start at Claire's blog for a complete list of the the Waltzers.


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.

That's it for me today.   Next up on the Waltz is the sweet, and oh so inspirational, Becca.

I am unsure if I left a post, though I did try, I got an error. So if this is duplicate, I apologize.
I said words to the effect of:
oooh those are super.
Wonderful!

These are SO CUTE!!! A creative way of using the red white and blue-- I could see a float in a 4th of July parade with people tossing these to the crowd, if it wouldn't make someone crazy making enough. Darling!
