MCT 3D Wednesday: Gummy Bears!

by Veronica

Every year, my father-in-law creates special Easter baskets for all of his kids and grandkids. He hides 'em (sometimes too well), we find 'em and then relish in the sugary goodness that comes along with Easter candy.

Since a few of us are trying to avoid having A LOT of the 'typical' candy, we receive a text message earlier in the month instructing us to reply with our wishlists. On my list this year? Jelly Belly Sugar-Free Gummy Bears. That's it.

In years past, I've been ALL about Kit Kats, Kisses, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and other chocolaty sinfulness heaven, but nowadays, I'm craving gummy candy. My absolute favorite are Sourpatch Kids (Who knew I love sour stuff? Not I!), but they are WAY too high in sugar and calories for me to indulge often. After doing some research on the Sugar-Free gummy bear genre of candy, I discovered that Jelly Belly makes the lowest calorie version. And guess what? They're delish! My FIL spoiled me to bits when he couldn't find this variety in any store and actually ordered them ONLINE to fulfill my wishlist!

Since these sweet little sugar-free packages deserve more love than just floating around our pantry, I put them in this little container I purchased from the Dollar Spot at my local Target and made a super simple label for the front.

MCT Products Used
Stitched Vintage Label Die
Beary Special Thoughts Stamp Set

I created the gummy bear by simply stamping him (her?) in the same color that I planned to color in with.

Easy. Peasy.

All the little gummy bears are now in their places. In my craft studio. Uh oh.

Check out Emma's blog to see what the other designers came up with today!

I hope you were inspired!
