Gift Givers mini candy bar slider

For my last workshop, I wanted to do a simple make and take geared towards Christmas because we all know that if we don't start thinking early, we don't start preparing early. I wanted to do a simple treat giving idea that was easy to reproduce in larger quantities. So, I paired three items from the Holiday Mini catalog: Stocking Punch, Frostwood Lodge DSP, and the stamp set Gift Givers. (and of course, who doesn't like a little blingage too...).
It's just a 3x3 piece of DSP wrapped and adhered together slightly larger than the candy bar so it slides up and down easily, then punch a hole through both layers, thread some ribbon through the hole, drop your candy bar onto the ribbon so that it "sinks" to the bottom and then tie at the top.
