A Little Something Vintage

I just picked myself up something from Crafty Secrets and decided to use some of it for this little candy pull pouch. Did y'all ever see the tutorial Beate did on SCS? If not you can check it out here. I have altered the dimensions slightly so that I could use this GIANT candy bar! The dimensions I used are for the 7 ounce bar.....
It's actually just an 8 1/2 X 11 piece of card stock that I scored at 1/4" from the long side then from the score mark, score again at 4 3/4" then score 1/4" then another 4 3/4 and then cut at 1/4" You also score it 1/4" from the bottom of the page. I used sticky tape to tape the edges together...from there you could just follow the rest of Beate's instructions...the slot punch...ribbon to pull candy bar...that's it...then embellish.

I used one of the Cotton Scraps from Crafty Secrets on this one...
Now one more quickie something! I said when I posted the last Artisan 'challenge' that I would post a chance for blog candy at the next one. Well...I totally spaced it! Ah! Sorry about that! Here's what you will be playing for.....
How about this to make us stamp! Just create a Christmas something...card, gift, tag...whatever inspires you and then link it here. I will pick a winner at random on Saturday. Are you up for it? Feels like a win, win! You get a chance for the candy and are one project ahead of the game for Christmas! :)

Hope you are all having a great Sunday! I am off to get caught up on a few things! I will post you all soon!
