I wanted to show a quick and EASY Make & Take that we made at my BOGO sale this past week:
(This is my first attempt at blogging from my cell so I apologize for the photos).
Sadly, I couldn’t find individually wrapped black licorice but Stampin’ Up! sells these perfect narrow cello bags –$2.50 for 50 bags! I used a wooden spoon handle to sort of open up the bag so it was easier to get the licorice in.
Now for the actual broom bottom— I used 2 1/2″ x12″ of DSP. I adhered Tear & Tape at about 1″ down the entire 12″ stop. I then used our FANTASTIC Fringe Scissors (133325) and cut up the entire stop on both sides.
Now take the Tear & Tape off and roll the licorice up as tight as you can. I then tied 16″ of Linen Thread around the base and added a little “Boo” (From Happy Scences)tag for fun. (I used the 3/4″ circle Punch and the 7/8″ Scallop Punch) Once you have added your tag, just sort of smoosh out the bottom so it looks like a real witches broom!
These are so cute and and they can even stand on their own so they make great decorative treats ! (Actually, in this house, they are strickly decorations as nobody here thinks Black Licorice is a “treat”!)
Let me know what you think and stop by my store for any items you might need!
