A Basketful of Wishes

I'm always looking for different ways to make goodie baskets, and the Scallop Envelope Bigz Die does the trick for these birthday and for your treats.

I cut an assortment of cardstock using my Big Shot and the Scallop Envelope Bigz Die and then embossed the cut envelopes with different embossing folders for added texture. I tied ribbon, either around the envelope or to the stick, and then added my candy treat.  I used sticky strip to hold the stick into place and then stamped my images with ink and punched them out using either the Scallop Square or Scallop Circle punch.  The stamped images are from a retired stamp set, but you could use any type of stamp depending on what you are covering.  For my treat I used individually wrapped Peppermint Patties.  The sticks were purchased at a local craft store. 

These would make nice favors for a baby or bridal shower.  Just change your stamped image for your event and you have a nice arrangement of treats.

For today's treats I used the following:
Assortment of Stampin' Up! cardstock and ink
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Scallop Envelope Bigz Die #113462, Variety of Embossing Folders, Sticky Strip #104294
Embellishment:  Variety of Stampin' Up! Ribbon
Punches:  Scallop Square #119884, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle #119854
