So I think it is only fair, that I confess, that I am totally addicted to Pinterest ........... and I'm proud of it !!!!
The wealth of talent, that is to be found there, is just unbelievable. It has served as the most reliable recipe book I've ever laid eyes on, over the past few months. Everything I've made off of it, has turned out perfectly, and has been simply delicious - not many recipe books can claim that accolade.
Today however, is all about Christmas candy. Store bought candy, that you can turn into great Christmas creations, in mere minutes. Both of these ideas came off of Pinterest, they are not my original idea.

Little Santa's ... or should I say, tubes of Rolo's disguised as Santa!!! Wrap the tube in paper, add a tube of fabric as a hat (I like the effect the twine gives it). Haul out your paper punches, and create a Santa face. Wrap a strip of black cardstock around his portly middle, and add a rhinestone for a little Christmas sparkle. Done .... and ever so cute :-)

Next up, Heath Bars. Make a paper casing. Haul out those punches once again (I did use my Cricut to make  the beard for this Santa), and make his face. On a side note - I found the mustache punch at Hobby Lobby - I love it!!! I can't begin to tell you, how much I've used over the past month .... well worth the money spent. Tie a length of ribbon around him, add a tag, and you're done :-)

These would make great Stocking Stuffers, Class Gifts, Teacher Gifts,  A Sweet Token For Your Mailman ....Pretty versatile I'd say, and economical too !!!


  1. these are precious! I'm not on pinterest yet...but have seen some of my things on it (canape knives)....I keep thinking I'll join......

  2. I am absolutely a Pinterest addict! So many great ideas, and filled with treasures to be discovered! I will have to add these to my board!

  3. I know it is a bit early but I'm just popping by to wish you and your family a VERY Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and to thank you for visiting me and my little blog in Louisiana.
