Crafty Little Christmas: Wrapped Chocolates

Who doesn't LOVE chocolate??  OK...confession time...I used to not.  It's crazy, I know.  But when I was a kid, I actually really didn't care for chocolate (which is a tad bit odd, since Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was my all-time favorite movie...).  In fact, instead of admitting that I didn't like chocolate, I told a white lie and said that I was "allergic" to chocolate, just so I didn't look weird by not eating it.  Eventually, my taste buds came to their senses and I outgrew my "anti-chocolate" phase and now I could eat it by the bucketful.

The Holidays are generally the perfect excuse to give everyone and anyone I know chocolate!  Super expensive "chocolatier" chocolate to just good ol' Hershey's chocolate---it doesn't matter!  But what does matter to me, is how it's given.  I can't just hand you a plain chocolate bar.  It's just not the Papercrafting Passionista's style!  It has to be beautifully wrapped and preferably gift packaged in some sort of way! 

However, this Mama doesn't always have time for that (I mean, I'm Super Mom, #BossBabe, and now Santa Claus!?  I'm only human!!!)  So, I found a super quick and easy way to package up some chocolate and give it out the right way!


Supply List:

Paper Dimensions:


  • Cardstock (1-1/2" x 5")
  • Designer Series Paper (1" x 3")
Directions:
  • The first thing you want to do is cover your chocolates.  I used Hershey Nuggets.  Take your cut Designer Series Paper and apply a little adhesive (SNAIL works great for this!) on both short (1" side) edges of your paper.  Stick the one end down and then wrap the chocolate, securing the DSP down with the second end.  
    • (I think I made this sound much more complicated than it really is.  Just apply adhesive, stick, wrap, and roll!)
  • Now, slip the cut piece of Cardstock inside of your Cellophane Bag.  Place four wrapped chocolates inside on top of your Cardstock and secure the top (I just used a stapler).
  • Fancy up the top with additional scrap of DSP, Cardstock, or other Stamped Sentiments and Embellishments.  Get creative!
See!?  Now you can give out beautifully packaged chocolate to just about anyone, too!  Stock up on the supplies you'll need by Shopping Online Here and use Hostess Code: F9B3P3X4 to get a FREE gift from me!  (If your order is more than $150, then omit the code and earn Hostess Rewards---email me with questions!)

Tutorial Tuesday: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life! Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends!  PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and  the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow! Here's what I used to make this sweet card: Supply List: Fruit Basket Bun

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

Lent 2020: Days Nine-Thirteen

Hahah.  I am realllllllly good at sticking to my Daily Gratitude Posts.  {Insert Eye Roll Here}.  Well, I guess I can blame life, sicknesses, etc., but the reality is---I haven't been sticking to my Lenten Commitment of being Intentional.  But, let's forget the past and just start moving forward, right? Day Nine: Thursday was a rough day.  HJ was still sick-ish.  I started having the WORST sinus pressure.  I had a horrible headache.  I was out of ibuprofen for myself and I really didn't feel like going anywhere, despite the fact that I was beginning to get a little stir-crazy.  But, then I remembered how incredible Target Pick-Up is!  Just click, add to cart, checkout, boom.  Less than two hours later, I get a notification that my order is ready and I drive myself (and my sick kid) to a parking spot, GPS notifies Target of my arrival, and check---I have a bottle of ibuprofen and Advil Sinus meds in my hands and I'm back on my way home to my couch and snuggles withou
