Default FEB09VSN10 - Sat. Jan. 17 - 9:00pm - Candy Topped Love - CHAT THREAD

Title: Candy Topped Love
Hostess: Sarah (SeattleStamper)

Keyword: FEB09VSN10
Day/Date: Saturday January 17, 2009
Time: 09:00 PM (EST)

One of my favorite things to hand out to friends and family on any holiday is a little candy filled bag topped with a cute themed topper. Sure they like the candy but the topper is what they love to see and keeps this treat new and fun each time.

Your challenge is to create a topper for a bag of candy. This can be any size and even just the topper if you don't have candy and/or a cello bag handy, it can always be added later.

My Sample

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON (SUNDAY, JANUARY 18th
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

**Supplies needed for this challenge: Candy

I never thought of it like that but you're so right! I mean why else would I open a bag of candy corn? Presentation it everything!

What a fun idea! I don't think I have any candy (shocking, I know!) But I certainly have cello bags, so I will get to working on this as soon as I grab a snack!

Is finished making my topper. I will have to buy some more Hershey's Kisses to go under the bag. Think if I hide the bag, it will last until Valentine's Day???
