Candy, Candy anyone???

I can't decide what holiday I want to work on right now, so Americana is always a good one! Covers 4th of July, Memorial Day, President's Day, and so on. And why not? We live in the best nation in the world! So here's a candy cup sailor boy for all you patriotic folks out there.
Inspired by a great artisan, David of Chicken Lips Studios, who is the master at this, I created a little JOL candy cup. These are a lot harder than they look to create, so I probably won't be doing too many, but I do want to try a cat, a bat and an owl. Have you taken the time to check out the AHA blog lately? We sure have some talented folks over there!

Oh Mo! That would be a bit tough. I still have a slightly curly JOL lantern form that I did over a balloon that lost it's air while I was gone over a weekend. I will do something with it, but it definitely needs another layer of paper mache. Thanks Carrie!
