Hana Hou - Crankin' Out Crafts Episode 4: Birthday Candy Stick Favor

This week we will be re-visiting some of our favorite Crankin' Out Crafts Episodes! Today we take a look back at Episode 4, where Brandon shows you how to create an easy Candy Stick Favor.

It’s a new week here on Crankin’ Out Crafts, the show for crafters on the go who want to be in the know. This week’s theme is an occasion both dreaded and anticipated by many; the birthday! We’ll share three more projects to help you lessen birthday distress and increase birthday success.

Today’s episode is presented by Brandon, who shows us how to make a cute and simple favor using a new item in our stores, the candy stick bag. The episode is titled (not surprisingly) “Candy Stick Favor.”

Brandon uses punches, scrapbooking paper, and stamps to liven up a simple candy stick bag for this birthday party favor. 

For those of you who like to craft along with us, here are the supplies you’ll need:
2” Marvy Uchida circle punch (the blue one)
2.5”Marvy Uchida scalloped circle punch (the pink one)
Candy stick bag
A stamp of your choice
An ink pad
Double stick tape
Solid or patterned cardstock
Candy (M&Ms, Jelly Bellys, or candies of a similar size work well)
Colored pencils (optional)

Thanks for watching! Check back with us on Wednesday for another Hana Hou Episode.
