Project Tuesday 6 Pack Challenge.....

Hi Everyone! I've finally succumbed to Christmas and started on my Christmas projects at last *smile*

I purchased some little 1 x 8" cello bags from a fellow demo recently without really knowing what I would do with them. Then I came across some bags of Christmas jelly beans at Woolworths for only $2.00 and just knew that they would be perfect for my daughter to give out to her school friends instead of candy canes this Christmas.

While doing my regular Challenge Blog Site surfing this week I came across the Project Tuesday Six Pack Challenge. Instantly I knew that I had to join in with this one because it would be perfect for the jelly bean bags. Now my daughter will have something pretty to hold the jelly beans while she hands them out to her friends.

Here's what I came up with -

And a jelly bean bag -

I started putting the jelly beans in any which way but then the OCD got the better of me and I had to redo them in a colour pattern *smile*

If you decide to join in this challenge and make the 6 pack holder, I found a little error in the PDF. At Step 6, I found the measurements should read 'cut two pieces of cardstock 6 1/4" x 6 1/4".'

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

Stamp - Best Yet (retired)

Card Stock - Cherry Cobbler
DSP - Jolly Holiday

These are sooooo cute. Love them with the jelly beans in, and I completely understand what you mean by colour coding them.
