Just a little something...

Just a quick share tonight...I decided to be creative and make something for each of the boys in Joel's 8th grade class. Plus, this project was fairly inexpensive and who doesn't like chocolate???

Here are the supplies that I gathered up:

I purchased Hershey chocolate bars for $1 each...quite the bargain, huh??? I decided to use royal blue cardstock for the wrapper because black & royal blue are the class colors.

First, trim the 12x12 cardstock down to 6 3/4 inches wide by 8 1/2 inches long.

Then cut the patterned paper into 3 inch strips by 8 1/2 inches long. Next, wrap the candy bar with both the cardstock and then the patterned paper.

Next, I used the circle scallop Nestabilities with my Cuttlebug and cut out a shape that measures just under 3 inches across.

Using my Creative Memories cutting system, I cut small patterned paper circles for the center of the scallop shape.

A stamped "congratulations" sentiment and personalization using the Label Buddy completes this fun & yummy gift!

More to share tomorrow...take care!!!
