Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday to you all! As I promised yesterday (or threatened), I am back today with another fun project using the oh, so adorable Happy Go Lucky collection from Pebbles, Inc. This time, I have a sweet treat idea to share with you.
When I first saw all the bright and happy colors in this line, I couldn’t help but be reminded of rows of candy in a candy store. That thought sparked this candy-based project that’s quick and easy to create and adaptable for any number of confectioner’s treats. Couldn’t you see these simple pockets filled with old-timey candy sticks, bubble gum sticks, candy canes, or even candy bars? Change the papers and embellishments, and you have a project idea suitable for any time of the year.
The base of these sweets containers are simple strips of 12″ paper, folded up at the bottom to create a pocket. I held the sides together with Glue Arts U Cut It foam adhesive, which allows for enough depth in the pocket to fill it with candy. For really thick treats, try stacking two pieces of foam adhesive together for even more depth. Or, if you would rather fill your pocket with something thin, like a gift certificate, forgo the foam and stitch or staple it closed, or use Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares.
Once my pockets were created, I had a ball dressing up my holders with some of the many adorable embellishments from the Happy Go Lucky collection, including chipboard and felt flowers, embossed stickers, toothpick flags, trim, and floral and fabric brads. Too fun!

And if you leave a comment while you’re there, you’ll be entered to win this week’s fabulous prize package, the entire Happy Go Lucky collection along with a Glue Glider Pro, Ribbon Adhesive, and Mini Adhesive Squares. Yum!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’m off to go shopping. Birthday preparations are underway at our house. 🙂
Hope you have a wonderful day!
