Allison from Little Lovelies

Today we have the amazing Allison, from Little Lovelies. She is kind of a superstar and I was so excited when she agreed to do a guest tutorial for Halloween Month. She is fantastically creative and is sharing some of that creative love with us today. I am so excited! I can no longer keep you from this cute project.


Blog Meet Allison

My name is Allison and I blog at little lovelies, where I share cards, jewelry, crafts, embroidery, and all sorts of other little lovelies. 

What do you think of when you think of Halloween? Me - I think of candy. While I love a nice, big bag of Halloween candy from the grocery store, I love making something special and fun for my friends. I came up with these cute little treats to share with you today.

 Aren't they fun?

I saw this cute mold at JoAnn's and I knew it would make such cute candies (even though it is supposed to be an ice cube mold). 

 For making the candy, you will need candy melts, a mold, a squeeze bottle, and a bowl and spoon for melting. 

Melt the candy melts in the microwave 30 seconds at a time on 50% power, stirring every thirty seconds. Trust me on this one - you need to melt the candy this way! Half power, 30 seconds at a time, stirring frequently. 
Once your candy is melted, pour it into the bottle and begin to squeeze into your mold. 

You will want to squeeze candy into the details first, knock the mold a few times in the counter to get rid of bubbles, and then finish filling the mold. 

After you have filled all of your molds, knock the mold on the counter a few more times to even out the candy and get all the bubbles out. 

Let your candy set for a few hours and pop out of the mold. 

Meanwhile, you can make the packaging for your skull candies.

This is what I used to make my packaging - but I definietly encourage you to make something that fits your style or that is personalized to you. Have fun with it!

Fold your orange square in half. 
Gather your crepe paper between your fingers to ruffle it. 

 Run a line of hot glue down the center of your folded orange paper. 

Glue the ruffle crepe paper down. 
  Adhere a strip of glue tape down the back of your black strip of paper. 

Stick the black strip down in the middle of the crepe paper and wrap the edges of the paper strip around the back. 

Fold your paper packaging over the top of the plastic bag of candies and staple down. 

Glue down your stamped sentiment over the staples and you are done. 

I hope you have enjoyed my little Halloween project. I would love for you to come visit little lovelies and see what I am working on. Thanks, Danielle, for having me!
