I saw these cute treats on someone's blog and thought what a cute idea for the new stamp set "Eat Chocolate"
I made one for each of my club members so they could see how much fun this set is and can use for their own special treats for Valentines Day, Birthday or Special Occasion.
My original plan was to use sticky strip down each side to keep the pocket closed but noticed that it made the candy bar really tight in it, so I thought I would try the Tombo Multipurpose glue and it worked as well!!! I was afraid that when I slipped the candy bar into the pocket it would pull apart, but it didn't!!!
Here is a closer look at the treat. It's so easy to make. I cut 3 X 12" strips of DSP and folded each one in half. I used my corner rounder punch to round the top corners and folded the front piece down about 1 1/2". Then I glued the sides "very" close to the edge giving the candy bar enough room to slide in easily. I stamped the "So Much Chocolate, So Little Time in Early Espresso onto Whisper White cardstock then punched it out with the Wide Oval Punch. I layered that onto a piece of Early Espresso punched with the Decorative Label Punch. I also stamped the To Do List onto Whisper White with Early Espresso ink and punched it out using the 1 1/4" square punch and layered that onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock that was punched out using the Scallop Square Punch. I slipped the candy bar into the pocket and tied some of the 5/8" Organza Ribbon around the top and tied into a bow. Then using some Linen Thread, I attached the To Do List to the bow. Wala....... easy as pie.
Try your own Chocolate Treats, they're fun to give..... I think I will be making about 15 more of these for another event I'm part of. I hope everyone likes them.
Have a GREAT DAY!!
