Sorr for the sideways view! This is my very first non card project. I needed a small gift for all the kids in Our Confirmation class, and when I saw emmiestamps project http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p?photo=420744 I had to make it! I didn't have a circle stamp of any kind, so I made a template with my cutting system and stenciled the m&m's. I used the "M" from the Merry Christmas stamp from Loads of Love to stamp the candies. All in all I thought they came out cute.

As you hold these candies
In your hand,
And turn them,
You will see.
The M becomes a W,
An E, and then a 3.
They tell the Christmas story,
It's one I'm sure you know.
It took place in a stable.
A long, long, time ago.
The E is for the East,
Where the star shone so bright.
The M is for the Manger,
Where Baby Jesus slept that night.
The 3 is for the Wise men,
Bearing gifts, they say they came.
W is for Worship, Hallelujah, Praise His Name.
So as you eat these candies,
Or share them with a friend.
Remember the meaning of Christmas,
It's a Love story that never ends.
