Peppermint Patty Treats

Hello!! On Sunday - I was smiling from ear to ear as I was crafting away. Let me tell you why.....last Christmas, we hosted about 20 people for dinner and I made these table placecards to designate everyone's seat. I used Memory Box stamped images and DCWV paper. At the end of dinner, some guests took their placecards - and some left them behind. I couldn't throw them away - (not after all the work I put into them) so they sat in a drawer in my craft room up until Sunday........



I went in the drawer to look for something and found the placecards. I looked them over to see how I could "repurpose" them and then it came to me! I pulled off the "name" portion, I slid the ribbon up to the top and cut off the bottom 3". Then I took the pretzel bags I bought at Michaels and decided to see if my Peppermint Patty's would fit in them - and they did!


I decorated the PP's with my small scallop punch, 1 1/8" punch and a Studio G stamp. I was able to make 14 of them for our upcoming craft fair. I'm so pleased I didn't throw them away last Christmas and I'm even happier that I turned them into a product to sell at our craft fair.
Thanks for visiting today!

How cute!!! I have not been able to find any round patties. The ones I see are all in different packaging. I bet you sell a lot of these.
