MCT 12 Days of Christmas- Day 8!

Good day friends! Still MCT hopping? I hope so cus we're only on day 8 of our MCT 12 Days of Christmas and it's a great one! If you've arrived here from Miss LeAnne's wonderful blog, then you are in the right place! If not, then start HERE at Emma's blog for her daily dose of Christmas inspiration and another fabulous GIVEAWAY!

So, I just can't seem to get away from TREES lately, but I'm not sorry! This one was super fun and I'm excited to give it away to my neighbors who are even sweeter than it is!
I was encouraged by my new crafting friend Heather to enter this tree into the Dolce Stamps and Cards Thursday Challenge to GET YOUR SHINE ON! Thanks Heather :)
PEPPERMINT PATTY CANDY TREE
Emma's All Around Christmas and Mixed Holiday Sentiments combined with the Scalloped & Stitched Circle Die set decorated my peppermint patty's to perfection!
Here's a similar tree I made a couple years ago with mini Snickers which looked cute too, but I love my peppermint one more cus the circle stamped images and sentiments make it even more special I think. 
I can't locate the original tutorial I used for them and these are so easy, I just  made this one from memory--but I did find THIS TUTORIAL which should work fine for anyone who wants to make this project and I sure hope you do!!! *Update: I found the Better Homes & Gardens CANDY TREE TUTORIAL I originally used and I'm sharing it too cus she there's more great ideas for your candy treess--like Lifesavers, Sweet Tarts and a fab idea from one of my comments today mini Twix bars!!! All sorts of sweet inspiration huh! :)
