You know those times when you want to give someone a gift, but don’t want to spend a lot of money? Sometimes a block of chocolate is the perfect gift (okay, most times 🙂 ) But giving a block of chocolate alone looks a little boring. This tutorial from Splitcoaststampers is the perfect step up, and creates a huge WOW!
- Following the directions on the Splitcoast Tutorial, I measured my chocolate (Kit Kat Family Size!) to determine my cardstock sizes.
- The base layer is a piece of 12×12 Whisper White cardstock.
- I’ve used the gorgeous Ski Slope Designer Series Paper from the Spring Mini, doesn’t the Baja Breeze with snowflakes look so pretty?
- The Eyelet Border punch was used on two strips of Real Red cardstock. This was then adhered underneath the edges of the designer series paper.
- I then scored my papers according to the directions on Splitcoast.
- Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon was tied around the Chocolate Wrapper. The combination of Real Red and Baja Breeze creates a striking contrast.
- I cut circles out of Real Red, Whisper White and Baja Breeze cardstock for my ‘tag’.
- The edges of all circles were distressed using the distressing tool in the Cutter Kit
- I used the snowflake image from Short and Sweet, stamping it in Baja Breeze on the white circle.
- On the Baja Breeze circle, I embossed the snowflake image from Winter Post in white.
- The sentiment ‘Seasons Greetings’ is from Many Merry Messages. I stamped it in Real Red ink, onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock.
I hope you all have a go at this tutorial. It’s super quick to make up, and you could easily start making a few in advance for Christmas (just leave them flat until you’re ready to pop the choccie in).
