I love candy!!!

and I love Papertrey Ink's Timeless Templates almost as much! This is the Lollypop Along template, designed to hold 5 3/4" test tubes. I filled mine with candy, of course! For the paper, I used SU! Real Red cardstock for the base, and some sheets of real red printed paper from one of the SU! 6x6 paper packs. The LOVE stamp is from the new SU! set Love you Much. I really did not embellish this one too much, just used acetate (overhead transparencies) for the packaging! Holes were cut with nestabilities.

I also have green candy, so I will be making one to show you with those colors. and tomorrow I hope to make one with bath salts!

I looked high and low for the test tubes, too. Papertrey sells them, but I bought mine online at SKS Industries. I knew I would need a lot of them! SKS sells them for about $.41 each, but you have to buy 48. But using 5 at a time, I will use these up pretty quickly!

My daughter took one look at these and said....those tubes do not have enough candy in them! Good thing one gift has 5! Thanks for looking!

This is FABULOUS!!! I am planning on making some love potion too;o) I'll be giving my DH the green ones...Hahahaha!!!

Don't you love SKS? That is where my and my SIL buy our tins. You just cannot beat their prices! ANother thing that works, if you know a cigar smoker, is cigar tubes. I had no idea what they were until my DH showed me. He has a friend at work that asked if I could do anything with them because he was fixing to throw then out. They look just like these test tubes and come with a stopper and everything. You know I snatched those babies up with a quickness:o) Enough of my rambling!
