Caramel Apples Anyone?

What a Fun Way to Give a Gift of Fall!

Plus an apple a day keeps the doctor away! 😋

Here is my version of a Caramel Apple Kit created by Canadian Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Allison Okamitsu of

It was one of the treats I created for a recent Fall Craft Bazaar.

These treat bags are so easy to whip up. All you need is 3" X 6" Cellophane Bags (102210), Popsicle sticks, 10 or so caramel squares per bag, twine and a few tags adorned with some special touches and a greeting or other sentiment Itty Bitty Greeting (151331)

I had to fashion some tag variety of course. This was accomplished with my new Taylored Expressions Blending Brushes, Whisper White Cardstock (100730), a stencil from the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks Set (150697), Linen Twine (104199), and Classic Stampin' Pad colors: Crushed Curry (147087), Pumpkin Pie (147086), Cajun Craze (147085), and Merry Merlot (147112).

Some of the tags also received a flick off the cap of a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker (100082) creating a spray of splatter.

Next, the apple was an easy addition using the Harvest Hellos Bundle (153037). A punch using both Granny Apple Green (147095) and Soft Suede (147115) Cardstock formed the apple along with an even coat of glue from The Fine-Tip Glue Pen (138309) or Glossy Accents if you have it on hand. 

The ornate topper was punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (133324).

A couple of final touches with a swatch of Crumb Cake Cardstock (120953) curved at one end and a Fall or Halloween sentiment and the project is complete. 

My sentiment came from a past Hero Arts Thanksgiving Kit.

One note, from experience, once these kits are made, make sure to hand them out right away. I noticed after a couple of days in the bags, the caramel in the bottom of the bags started to soften and get sticky due to the moisture given off from the apples. 

Once I remove the apple, the caramel squares dried up again, ready to be repackage until the delivery day.

Have fun!
