Candy Dispenser for Your Sweets

Hello Everyone,

The weekend is slowly coming to an end, but I am feeling that I have accomplished much. A 21st Birthday Hop for Ashley, my photo light box arrived by Fed-Ex on Saturday, I created a list of crafts I want to try, and then today I got busy with those projects. 

One particular project I found at the Silhouette On-Line that I just had to try was this candy dispenser box. Isn't it fabulous?!?! My hubby thought it was neat; therefore, I am going to to give it to him for his desk, which works our perfectly since his school colors are green and gold.
The dispenser was easy to assemble, especially with the instructions provided on the creator's website. No decorations are provided, so you can make it fit any color theme or holiday.
The front piece is movable as it opens and closes to hide the candy. The lid is removable to add more candy. I used Rolos, but any small individual pieces will fit.
Other Materials:
DCWV pattern paper ~ a Christmas stack
kraft and mint green card stock
gold ribbon
Trendy Twine ~ Limeade
Plantin School Book Cricut cart~ tag
Shamrock die -cuts
green ink
My Craft Spot stamp
gold glitter glue
green confetti shamrock

I took pictures in my new photo light box, but I need to keep practicing. I am slightly happy since the shadows are limited. Now I just need to get better with the manual setting on the camera. That is still on "my list" and I am NOT giving up yet.

Off to get a few projects started. I really want to make a shaker card. What is on your list to create?

Stay Creative,
