Perfect Treats for Little Pilots

My daughters year end dance recital is coming up. Their dance routine is called The Pilots and they dance to a number that goes "... we're flying in an airplane looking out the window watching the clouds go by..."

I wanted to make a sweet inexpensive treat for all the girls in class for their last lesson next week. I had seen Sweet-tart rolls at the dollar store and thought I could wrap them in cloud themed DP - like their costumes.

I did a search on Splitcoaststampers for candy wrappers and found a cute example using life saver candy rolls and streamer out the top found here. Then I remembered that my friend Kerry J @ Cards by Kerry had done some sort of candy wrapper for her son's classmates for Valentine's, but couldn't quite remember what it was.

Kerry had made these adorable little airplanes using sticks of gum (like Juicy Fruit), life savers and rolled candies (like Rockets or US Smarties) held together with small rubber bands (Kerry's sample). I found the instructions for these treats here.

I don't advocate gum for kids my daughters age, but these darn treats were too cute to pass up.

You don't have to re-wrap these babies like I did either because all gum packages like this come with white paper all ready for your favorite stamp. Not a lot of work needed at all.

How cute are these. I remember seeing something very similar once upon a time when I worked for Cessna Aircraft Company. They never loose their appeal. Awesome job.
