Default How to do card candy?

Hi!

My local scrapbook group is doing card candy for our swap this month.

My question is for those of you that have done this before. How do you give your candy? More specifically how do you package it?

Thank you

Back in 2007, the CTMH group I was in did a card candy swap. I attached mine with dimensionals onto clear cardstock (or a transparency or similar), sized to fit into one of the clear envelopes I had on hand for standard cards (A2?) I've attached a pic...

That's super cute.

My thing is that I'm using my Xyron to make stickers.

And I'm running into trouble trying to figure out how to package them.

If you have anything like laminating sheets or Contact paper, they might peel off of those easily enough to use that. You could cover cardstock with it, then add the stickers, then put them in a clear envelope or ziploc bag. I often save the backing from anything "sticker-ish" for re-use on projects like this. I have the backing from a whole stack of laminating sheets that would probably work, if you want me to send you some...

Thank you.

That's ok. The swap is Friday.

I'll try your ideas.
