Minty and Sweet

Remember when I posted the gingerbread people, I said I was adding something more to my kitchen garlands?  Today I did it! I made those cute peppermints on page 26 of Joys of the seasons.  I used my Gypsy to hide the candy cane, and I didn’t cut the wrapper.  The result was a cute peppermint to add to my garland. 


I used glitter glue from Studio G.  I often use this cheaper alternative to Stickles when I know the project is not required to be archival safe.  It made the peppermints look so sweet!  Then I punched holes on each side, added ribbon to tie two together, and ribbon on each end to attach the two peppermints to the garland and it was ready to go.  Very fast, very easy! 


And now some close ups!
