Wild about You!

I had some left over candy bars from Christmas, so this week I'm spending some time making them into Valentine's Day treats.  click here for my Christmas candy bars  This is my first attempt.  I made the Lion with the owl builder punch.  I cut off the owl's feet, and added a nose and eyes and mane.  The lion's mane is made with two scallop circle punches.   Fold across the circles, creating creases in between the scallops, all the way around both circles.  Snip along one of the creases to the center of the circle, then accordion fold all the way around.  Next, nest the two circles together with some glue to make one circle.  To attach my lion head to the accordion fold circles, I used 'dimensionals' (Stampin' Up! foam adhesive spots).  I stacked them two high so that the mane could still have some up and down dimension and not be squished flat by the lion's head.  I also used two stacked 'dimensionals' to attach the finished lion to the wrapped candy bar. 

I completed the project with a tag that reads  "wild about you, Valentine!".   I think the kids in my son's preschool will like it!  I used both sizes of the tag punch to make the tag, and some red ribbon. 
The punches I used for the lion are the large scallop circle, the owl builder punch, and the small heart punch. 
 Thanks for stopping by!  Check back in the next day or two for my "bee mine" bee, and more candy ideas  for Valentine's Day!
