Crafting with Candy Wrappers

The Sweet Life Tiny Book.

The theme for Eileen Hull’s teams this month was “Crafting with Unconventional Materials”.

I do love a crafty challenge. I’ll admit this one stumped for a minute or two.

This challenge had my waistline taking one for the team.

The mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were leftover from Easter.

I can’t think of a better way to use them up.

Crafting with Candy Wrappers

Directions:

  • Carefully unwrap the peanut butter cup wrappers.  Smooth out the wrinkles using your fingernail.
  • Place the wrappers into the opening of the disposable sticker maker.  Pull the wrappers through on the back of the machine, tear.

  • Cut the wrappers into smaller strips and pieces.

  • Carefully peel the wrappers from the adhesive backing and place them randomly onto a 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of matboard.
  • Lay the matboard on the Sizzix Tiny Book Die facedown.
  • Run the die through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine* to cut out the Tiny Book cover.

  • Carefully fold the book on the score lines.
  • Cut two pieces of white cardstock 2 3/4″ x 11″.  Score both pieces of cardstock every 2 1/8″ to create a long accordion piece.  You will end up with a small tab at the end of both strips.  Use the first tab to connect the strips.  Cut the second tab off.  Refold to make a long accordion strip.
  • Adhere both ends of the cardstock into the front and back cover.
