Hi, I'm new here. I love scrapbooking and also using scrap elements/papers to make personalized candy wrappers and favors for others. I even have my own website. Check out my gallery. Do any of you do this here?
I'm sorry about including the link to my website - I'm new here - I've deleted it. Thanks for letting me know. I do some digital scrapbooking, but mostly I buy the scrapbooking elements and papers to create my wrappers and other favors. It's so much fun!!!
It's always interesting to see how people use scrapping supplies in innovative ways. The hoarder in me always hates throwing away those gorgeous cellophane Quality Street and Roses chocolate wrappers, even though I know I have no use for them. Actually I used some for stage lights once!
I like to make candy wrappers, but I do my design on the computer, then print them on coated paper. They're great for Sweet 16 or any birthday or special day. I haven't used scrappy supplies with mine, but I do use some of the wrappers on LOs to go with the occasion that I'm scrapping.
Welcome and I enjoyed looking through your gallery~Judy
Now that I actually look at your creations properly, I realise that you're making candy wrappers out of pretty paper, not making pretties OUT OF candy wrappers. I'm so sorry, I really wasn't reading properly.
I made a bunch of those for the church craft Advent Fair last year. The decorated chocolate bars, coffee and hot chocolate sachets flew off the table faster than anything else.
Forgive me. I had self-diagnosed crazy-brain (technical term)...
