Smoothfoam. Once I had my circle cut I had to figure out the size I needed to cut my peppermint swirls(right now they look like blingy shark fins). I used my template to cut the swirls out of the Iridescent Glitter Cardstock and the Candy Apple Red Glitter Cardstock.
When I had all of my swirls I glued them to the front and back of the Smoothfoam circle.
Don't worry about the bit of overlap in the middle, we are going to cover that up. I used a Snowflake and Heart Dew Drop on both sides.
The sides were covered with a red frilly ribbon.
Here's a better peek at the side. It covers the raw edge of the Smoothfoam. You could paint it or cover it with more paper too.
Nobody wants to eat a mint that is out of the wrapper. I made this wrapper out of a cellophane bag.
I cinched the ends with a bit of wire to hold them tight and covered the wire with Rusty Rose Ribbon.
I added a bit of The Robin's Nest straw to make the hanger and my delicious mint is ready for the tree.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I made my peppermint and feel inspired to create your own.
Merry Christmas in July!
