Candy Flowers and blog candy

I made some candy flowers today to share with you.  They are very quick and easy and would make a fun addition to any Valentine treat.  Or, you could make a whole bouquet of them for someone sweet!  I used the 2 middle sized flowers from the Flower Folds die and sponged around the petals.  Then I punched some leaves with the Blossom Punch and adhered them all to skewers with Sticky Strip.  They are holding on just fine since the Sticky Strip is so sticky.  I also used Sticky Strip to adhere the candy heart to the middle of the flowers.  I guess you could use regular adhesive since most people will be removing the candy fairly quickly!

I came across some blog candy I wanted to share.  It isn't stamping or scrapbook related but you could win $25 to use in Lauren's Etsy store and she has some fun crocheted items there.  I've already picked out what I want if I win!  Here is where you can go to register for the blog candy.  I bought some of the fun little hats for all the grand kids for Christmas and Lauren is very fast and very good.  The kids loved their hats too!  Here are a couple of pictures of 3 of them in their hats.

I love the flowers! I think I'm going to do something similar to this for my sister's Valentine's day package (she's on a mission right now) :) Thanks for the idea!

Those flowers are great! I have been trying to find some that I like, and I finally did. Thanks!

Those hats are too cute. Thanks for sharing the link.
