Candy Inspiration Challenge

Use candy to inspire your project!  Pick your favorite candy and use the colors/packaging/reason it is your favorite and get to creating something great!
I was inspired by my favorite Reeses' Peanut Butter Cups to make these medallions.  I'll share some tutorial links below. I used black cardstock- I think 1.5" x 12", and folded it every 3/8" or so. I used vintage dictionary paper and kraft cardstock and my nestability dies for the centers. I added silver glitter to the middle. These will eventually go on a Halloween banner, you'll have to check back next week to see the banner. Oh, and if you want to see the tutorial for the DIY Designer Pumpkin that I wrote, you can get it here.

Check out what the other Master Forgers have made for this Candy Challenge and get in on the fun too!

Your medallions made me think of the Peanut Kisses candies in the black or orange wrappers. Yum.
