It's National Candy Day!

Happy Saturday and Happy Candy Day! Why yes it is a real day, Google it! No problem, I'll wait while you do...but I promise, it's a real day! I had no idea that there was a national candy day until I had received an email about all of the November happenings such as the usual suspects of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, you know the rest, but there it was in black and white, National Candy Day...Yes, I did Google it to make sure it was legit, and yep, November 4th is National Candy Day.

 So, I decided to celebrate National Candy Day and I have a really cute treat box to share with you.I actually got the idea from Pink Buckaroo. I cut 2 pieces of Real Red cardstock 5" x 4.75" and scored all 4 sides at 0.5" (I used 5 post-it notes as a shim when scoring the second piece to make the top of my box. I then added a piece of DSP from the Quilted Christmas collection cut at 3.75" x 3.5" and adhered to the box top along with a silver Foiled Snowflake. I then wrapped 3 Green Sprigs with the Quilted Christmas Ribbon and adhered them to the box top with a couple of Glue Dots. Finally, I created a tag with a scrap piece of Whisper White and stamped the Sparkle sentiment from the Add a Little Glitz stamp set in Garden Green. (I started with a 2" strip of Whisper White, once I stamped my sentiment, I trimmed along both sides to tighten it up with a final measurement of about 1.75" and I trimmed off the bottom close to the sentiment also)

FYI, Caramel M&M's are theeee BEST! In case you were wondering that is. Well that does it for today. I hope you enjoyed today's post. If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. I am more than glad to answer them for you. Have a great day and Happy stamping...and enjoy that candy today!
