Cupcake Thanks Candy Sticks...{Challenge Project}

Good Morning everyone! 
I am popping in with a non DT related project, but with an entry for a few challenges!
It has been a while since I played along with any so I thought I would share an order I just completed that happened to fit into a few I love to play along with.
A friend of mine contacted me looking for some birthday party favors. She wanted some candy sticks, purple~her daughters favorite color~ a birthday theme with a thank you message so these are what I created.
Hope you like them!
Candy sticks are so fun to make! Decorating the tags to fit the theme, have just endless possibilities. For my tags, I used some freebie images I got from Paper Smooches (links down below) and I designed them to fit inside my circle and scallop die cut~ all using my Silhouette Designer Studio.
Once I had the design in place, I printed and cut the shapes, assembled the tag and then added diamond stickles to the frosting and cotton candy stickles to the cherries.
Once they were all dry, I attached them to my skinny candy bags (already filled with white and purple candy jewels) with some Grape Fizz Trendy Twine.

Supplies Used:
Purple, white cardstock
diamond stickles
cotton candy stickles

And there are my treats. I am sure hoping my friend and the birthday girl love these!!!
That is all I have to share for today. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT day!!
Entering this into the following challenges:

  15. Hi Jessica,

    Those came out GREAT!!! :) I know the birthday girl will love them!

    If you don't mind my asking, how much do you charge for something like that? I get a lot of requests, but it is awkward coming up with a price for a friend (or even an acquaintance).

    Thank you for sharing your amazing creations!
