Time for Candy Corn

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Hope your all having a great week so far!

Today i'm sharing another Halloween favorite, Candy Corn M&M Sticks!

These things are really fun & easy to make with Stampin Up's 1 X 8 Cello Bags. 

I noticed with these Candy Corn M&M's that they are bigger than the normal sized M&M's and had to be very careful filling the bags. I split open a couple of them when I forced them down the bag. The tag was made using the retired Petite Pennant Builder Punch. I used some older Pumpkin Pie & Daffodil Delight 12 X 12 Paper Stacks to make the actual candy corn then layered them on the scalloped piece of Whisper White. My twine is Tangerine Tango that I used to tie my tag on top of the cello bag. Trick or Treat comes from the Good Greetings hostess set from last year. I punched that out with the Word Window Punch and glued directly onto my candy corn tag. I liked these for something different this year. I originally was going to fill my bags with Reese's Pieces but realized that there are some people with peanut allergies so I went back to using the Candy Corn M&M's. I also considered using Sixlets but could not find any in Halloween colors. Those are some options when looking to fill the 1 X 8 Cello Bags! I also wish M&M's would consider going back to using Halloween colors for their M&M's instead of fall colors. I mean, I love the fall ones for Thanksgiving but we need colors such as orange, purple, green & black for Halloween! Wouldn't they be awesome in a 1 X 8 Cello Bag!!!?? I think so!
