Candy cane puzzles

Hello.

I was planning to give you a break from Christmas crafts today but I posted a photo in a Craft Fairs group on Facebook the other day and it’s gone a bit mad with reactions and comments so I’d like to share it here too.

I’ve got a few fairs coming up before Christmas and these candy cane tags have been popular in the past so I’ve been making more for this year…

I always find when I open the boxes of candy canes that some are broken or I break them trying to get them out of the box. Last year I ate all the broken ones but this year I’ve found an alternative to them going to waste or to my waistline!!

I’ve simply broken them into smaller pieces, popped them in a cello bag and added a topper. The label is printed and then cut with a stitched rectangle die. The jigsaw puzzle piece was cut using the Puzzle Pieces dies.

I’ve used retired papers from my stash to keep my costs down and I can sell these cheaply as a novelty gift.

I thought this was a fun idea and clearly lots of people on Facebook agreed. I hope you do too.

I’ve listed the current Stampin’ Up! products I’ve used below.

Happy crafting
