I made this candy dispenser for my nieces and nephew, just another little goodie treat for them while they wait for Santa. It was a great excuse to use more of my Maggie images and my new Copics and have fun doing something a little different. The base is made from a chicken feeder that I sprayed white, I found an old Ball canning jar I had left over from some kitchen projects, and I made the Gingerbread grandma with wood shapes from Lara's Crafts. I was going to fill it with peppermint candies until I found out how much more it would cost to ship it filled. Whew! Can't afford that! So, sister dear is going to have to fill it herself but I don't think she'll mind.
Now I have to make the card to go with the candy. I got the idea from Caroline when I saw how she made her party invitation using three Tilda's. Liked the idea so much, I CASEd it from her. Thank you, Caroline, Great inspiration. Now if I can get my version to look half as good as hers, I'll be happy!!
