Hiya! It's Blog Hop time at Papertrey Ink. I totally missed it last month, but I managed to squeeze in a project earlier this afternoon. Hooray for craft time! :-) This month, we were challenged to show some holiday plans ... I decided to make a wrap for a super yummy Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark bar.
Here's the chocolate (FYI - it really is amazing stuff!) ... it comes in a pretty nice package to begin with, but certainly you could kick it up a notch to make it a little more personal and like you thought about it. I can see how this would be a great gift to acknowledge someone in the office without being really spendy or making them feel obligated to return the favor.
I cut a piece of Vintage Cream cardstock 6" high by about 8" wide. Then score it like shown. (1-1/8" panel, 3/8" panel, 3" panel, 3/8" panel, 3" panel) and make sure it fits!
Then I stamped up my pattern with Scarlet Jewel & Ripe Avocado inks using the Giga Guidelines and matching stamp from Guidelines II.
Then, I used my Spring Moss stamp pad to add some color to a scrap of Vintage Cream before stamping the stocking in Ripe Avocado.
I cut out the stocking and added it to a chipboard tag covered with Vintage Cream card stock and inked with the Chai & Chamomile as well as some polka dots and sentiment in Scarlet Jewel. After wrapping the paper around the bar, I attached the tag with some burgundy twine and a button along with some ribbon. Here's a close up of the tag.
And here's the finished product. The nice thing is, the candy bar can slip out and be replaced to regift if someone wants to ... and since I did some "quality control" on the chocolate, I will definitely be refilling the packaging! LOL
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project :-)
