Candy Sliders

Good morning everyone! My BIG post is coming this evening, but I did want to share these candy bar sliders that I finally got around to making and trust me, I will be making more. These are so fun and easy to make and have such a WOW component to them. Over the past months, I have seen lots a versions of them and different measurements etc based on the type of candy that you want to make "slide", but I really like Andrea Walford's pattern. During her Easter Tutorial Blitz, she provided a template and a pattern that is adaptable to any side candy. WARNING - there is a little bit of math (hahha), just make sure you aren't doing these at 1 am in the morning :) Here is her tutuorial --> CLICK HERE <--. She always has such amazing work on her blog and lots of great tutorials.

I used plain cardstock and then random stamped my design, but these also look really pretty when you add printed paper or make them out of printed cardstock. For the Twilight bar, I also stamped my image, cut the circle out, and then used pop dots to adhere them. It made for a nice dimensional bar. These are also so easy to adapt for a specific holiday, but I wanted these to be generic so all I did was add some tags and you have a great little gift.

Cardstock: Twilight, Chocolate Vanilla Cream, Cranberry (CTMH), Ink: Chocolate, Twilight, Cranberry (CTMH), Stamps: Shapes by Design, Limitless Labels (Papertrey ink), Ribbon: Misc. Red Check, Chocolate (CTMH), Other: SU! Small and Large tag punch

Come back later for my Papertrey ink project. They have started a "blog hop" for those who want to participate. Click --> HERE <-- for the details. This hop's theme is a ribbon based one. I'm looking forward to seeing everybody's projects. Have a great day!
