Candy Bags {head to the paint store!}

{ Make it!}
Gather together:
Paint sample cards {I picked these up at Lowe's, I like the width of them.}
Crop-a-Dile or favorite hole punch.
European stapler for the darling petite old brass staples. Find it here and here.
Red foil hearts {or you can cut a heart out of pretty card stock you have on hand}
Glassine bags {find on Etsy or Google glassine to locate}  or if you don't have any make your own out of wax paper}
Favorite stickers/labels

 Put your paper heart in bag.
 This bag was a wee bit too big, so I folded it on both sides to fit the heart. {I taped the folds with Japanese tape on the back}
Fill with candy making sure the candy stays on the front of the heart.
 Fold your paint sample card in half.

 Fold paint sample card over bag and staple twice towards the top, space the staples evenly. Punch a hole with your crop-a-dile or favorite hole punch in the center top of paint sample card.  Insert brad and stick a label on the center of paint sample card. Last, stamp your favorite sentiment on label.
Sweetie pie sweet and fun to give.....

I've been seeing this idea of using paint chips in crafty stuff. You know they are going to start charging us for them don't you!! LOL!!! Maybe they won't catch on!!!
