New Year Favours Using Rainbow Twizzlers

When Lucy and I went shopping in Walmart in Las Vegas one of the “most wanted” things on my shopping list was a big bag of Rainbow Twizzlers …….
Rainbow twizzlers….. no wonder I had to pay for extra baggage on the way home!!
New year Favour. Rainbow TwizzlersIt’s a miracle that the said Twizzlers weren’t eaten between the time we got back and just after Christmas, when I made these favours, believe me at times I was sorely tempted!

Wearing latex gloves, I put a layer of white mini mallows at the bottom of each cello bag (to look like clouds), added a 6cm length of each flavour Twizzler, and then sealed the bags using my Elitech bag sealer.

I then made thin bag toppers using gold card, fastening them with double sided tape to the cello bags and sentiment tags using my Stampin’ Up plain and scalloped edge punches.
