 Please welcome one of my Best Blogging Friends Georgiana from Carson's Creations

 Hello Crafty Friends,
Carri asked my to showcase her skittles and I jumped at the chance to share. I have been using Carri's skittles since she created them and I have truly enjoyed the variety of colors and flare it adds to my projects.
  Here is my Skittle's project...

I used Rudolph Red glitter skittles around my Vintage Lace Spellbinder, which is adhered with Zip Dry to the front of my boutique (treat) box. This would be perfect for an end-of-the-year teacher gift.

 I cut out circles (cut at 3/4" which fits the bottom of the Hershey Kiss) and then stamped each one with A+. A glue pen was used to adhere each circle to the bottom of the Hershey Kiss. I used crimped red scrap paper to fill the bottom of the clear treat box. 

 The twine bow secures the top flap.
