Cast Party Treats

The girls wanted to take treats to their cast party for their friends and directors. As usual, we needed something easy and fast. Here's what we came up with:


The little tag says "Thanks, you're a star!" and they wrote a little note on the back. I had the hardest time finding the perfect color for the chipboard star - nothing matched the gold Rolos. Then I finally decided to try unwrapping one of the candies, and used the wrapper to cover the star....it worked fabulous! It matches perfectly - and we got to eat the unwrapped Rolos! So, if you ever need a quick treat, this was easy, fun and yummy! Here's a close-up:

Carrie, what an adorable, quick project! And you're so creative! I would never have thought of using the wrappers . . . I'd just be sitting there eating Rolos thinking and thinking and thinking. :) I'm loving your blog! :)
