Day 9 of 20 days of Christmas: Christmas Candy People

For Day 9, I have some Christmas Candy Men to share with you. You probably remember the pumpkin men and football men I made before, so I decided to make some for Christmas. Out of all of them, the present seems to be everybody's favorite. I actually made 30 of them for one of my sister's work.

To make these, I used the sixlets candy like before, but I found holiday colored ones for the Christmas people.
I made my cuts and then took 4 of the sixlet packs and stapled them to the back of the cut.  Once they are stapled, I then glued the front of the cut on to finish them off.  I cut all of the shapes between 3 1/2 and 4 inches.

The present is from the Smiley Cards Gypsy Cart.  I used a white pen to draw the circles on the ribbon, a glitter pen on the cheeks and added some google eyes.
The ornament is from the Simply Charmed Cricut Cart  I added google eyes to the face.
The tree is from Create a Critter Cricut Cart and I used some gems and strips of paper to dress it up.  I also added google eyes.
The candy is from the Simply Charmed Cricut Cart and I added some glitter around the packaging and some google eyes.
I am linking these up here:
