A Candy Apple for you!

Hi Everyone!


Wow! I've been busy working...which is good but I miss my "Me" time.  I have made quite a few projects this past week but I've been getting home after 6:00pm every night and I just don't like how the projects photograph using indoor light. So here is one project made for the CWC Challenge - Fruits, Cornucopia, or Harvest. Now, my boys have been asking me to make homemade candy apples for years for Halloween and every year we get so busy I just go out and buy a few to hand out to their special friends. So this year I thought ok maybe I'll make some cute tags that will encourage me to make them.....but no go. Well here are the cute tags for another batch of store bought candy apples :)
These cards are about 3" x 3".  I welded two apples together using my gypsy and the Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge.  I just hand cut the caramel drip and added glossy accents.

The tag is from TBBM and the mini popsicle sticks I found at Micheal's in the kids arts & crafts section.

Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Shelly, these are ADORABLE! :o) In fact, they just may be the cutest harvesty tags I've ever seen. I love the bows, the mini popsicle sticks, and of course the drippy shiny caramel! And you know what else? I love your paper choice! These are going to look fabulous with the treats. :o) Beautifully done, my friend! (As always!)

Hugs and blessings! :o)
