It's a Wrap!

Hello, Janice here with you again to share my latest make

Something a little different from me today - A Chocolate Bar Wrapper!
I think it's nice to give as a small thank you gift to someone or maybe to cheer them up.

I first cut a piece of paper to the size of the chocolate bar - 8"x 6" ensuring the two
edges overlapped to stick together, on the underneath.

Next I ran a green Promarker along each long side and wrapped it around the
chocolate bar, using double sided tape to join together at the back.
With the Sue Wilson Designs - Petite Peony Cluster die, I die cut the larger die in
cream card and the peony die in plum card. This I did twice.
Next I glued the plum peonies behind the cream ones on the flourish.
With the second set, I did exactly the same, but this time I snipped off the foliage.
Using 3D foam pads, I attached them to the flourish.

Next, using the Sizzix - Framelits 'Hello' set of dies and stamps, I stamped
the 'for you' and die cut it with the smaller die of one of the pairs of frames and cut the
larger die in plum card to matt it.

Lastly, I added a couple of punched butterflies and some diamantes to finish.

Here are the dies I have used:-

  2. This is sweet.....literally! I love this whole idea! That peony die is gorgeous, love it in the plum! I have been looking for a sweet idea for my Mom and her gal pals, you know a little token on Valentine's Day and I think you just gave it to me. Thank You! Love your creation!

  3. It's always nice to see other ways to use dies than on cards and your candy wrapper is super. The colors you chose on the floral corner are perfect to really set them off. Wonderful inspiration!

  4. Now who doesn't like chocolate and to get it in such lovely packaging, you almost wouldn't want to open it up.... well almost, LOL! Lovely idea!

  5. Wow, this is so pretty. Love how you used the dies.

  6. What a fun way to gift some chocolate to someone! I would totally love it! haha! I love the popped up flowers. Great dimension. Adding the green stripe to the edge helps give definition as well. Perfectly perfect in every way!!
