I cut 2 strips of Whisper White measuring 5 1/5" x 2"-2, or 1 7/8". I stamped the sentiment with Soft Suede ink and the hearts with Real Red & adhered it to the back of the box with SNAIL. I stamped the vase with Pool Party, the stem with Garden Green, the flower & cheese with Crushed Curry, the bread with Crumb Cake, the cupcake with Soft Suede, Crumb Cake & Pink Pirouette. The bowl of cherries was stamped with Soft Suede and the cherries & napkins with Real Red. I stamped each image onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, leaving room around each image, and ran them all through the Big Shot at one time using the coordinating Picnic Basket Builder Framelits.
Before I covered the candy, I cut a piece of DSP to 6" x 2", scored it down the middle and folded it in half longways. I adhered them together with SNAIL & then curled it with a Bone Folder. I then wrapped it around a skewer to get it extra curly. In hindsite, I would probably just do a 1" x 6" strip instead of having a double layer, as it puckered in some spots. I then adhered the curled DSP to the Rolos with Tear & Tape, and then wrapped the candy with DSP. As I mentioned above, a 4" x 4 1/2" piece of DSP would have worked better.
