More Stocking Stuffers - A basketful of Mentos!

If you need a quick gift for your childs class, co-workers, or stocking stuffers, it is really easy to dress up a pack of mentos, or any other similiar wrapped candy.  They look really cute all dressed up and taste good too!
To wrap the Mentos, I kept the original wrapper on the candy, and just wrapped it with Designer Series Paper.  I cut my paper to measure 5 1/2" x 3 " and rolled it up by putting one layer of Snail Adhesive on one end, and rolling it up to meet the other end that had Sticky Strip on the edge to keep a good hold.  I dressed them up with my sentiment and ribbon, and added a retired jingle bell to each one.  To distinguish the different flavors I used four different colors on my ribbons and stamped image.  This helps me at my craft fairs, and is easy for people to see what type of candy they are getting.
The following were used:
Cardstock:  Whiper White
Designer Series Paper:  Snow Festival (Holiday Mini)
Stamp Set:  Tags til Christmas #120847 wood or #121169 clear
Ink:  Gumball Green #126861, Cherry Cobbler #12966, Early Espresso #126974, Real Red #126949
Ribbon:  Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin #126848 - other ribbon is retired
Punch:  Scallop Square #119884
Adhesive:  Snail #104332, Sticky Strip #104294
