Good morning! I hope everyone woke up to chocolate boxes and flowers! Not me...hubs took my little guy upstate yesterday and won't be home until this afternoon. We don't really celebrate anyway. I made him a cute card and will make a yummy dinner...Penne a la Punk Ass Betsy from the Pioneer Woman. It's so quick, easy, and unbelievably delish! It looks fancy with all that shrimp so it's perfect for Valentine's Day! Anyway here are a couple of candy bags I made for my boys.
Not exactly how I planned them...I have these window coffee bags from Papertrey I was going to use but the windows were too wide and extended past the sides of the gator. So I thought I would just use these brown lunch bags instead. Well, they are really too big for the Hershey's Kisses I was putting in them and so I stuffed the bottom of the bag with paper so that when I put the candy in it would show through the window. Well, the bag bagged out too much and got kinda lopsided and looked really sloppy. So I searched around and found these clear bags I had bought at Michaels a while ago for another project. I though this would work better but similar issue with the bag expanding too much from the weight of the candy and I kinda lost the gators feet.
Next time I will have to create my own bag or box if I can't find one the right size. I just assumed the coffee bags would work and I never checked and only found the eve of Valentine's Day. Frankly, my kids could care less about the packaging, it's me who's all flustered, lol!
Have a happy and have a great weekend!
