Frugal Finds: Candy Wrapper Edition

We're taking our inspiration from the recent holiday and using candy wrappers for our frugal finds topic this month.  This one definitely required some thinking out of the box!  Check out these creations!

 Hershey Heart Wrappers covering Maya Road Chipboard.
Practical Scrapper Cathy

Practical Scrapper Kerri used her Dum Dums wrappers to create her "lollipops".  She wadded up a tissue and covered it with the wrapper then tied it off with some Martha Stewart baker's twine.  She also used the dum dums wrappers to create the accordion flowers on the ends of her banners.

If you are one of the scrappers who has a hidden stash of chocolate bars in you office then this project is for you!  On this card, Practical Scrapper Kerri used some mini Hershey bar wrappers to embellish her card.  She altered some brads, used the wrapper as a layer of paper in her banner, and created an accordion flower out of them.  What a perfect way to get rid of the evidence-- no one will ever know ;)

Practical Scrapper Carolina used the wrapper that covered a chocolate marshmallow heart (yummy!) to cover the pop up heart she cut with her Silhouette.

 Practical Scrapper Erin used the inserts from this year's Valentines chocolates to create a page. She used embossing folders on two of the hearts, and attached the chocolate liners to the third to create a ruffled edge.
