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")
  • 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!)

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel

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: Fold Over Gift Box

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!  I hope that your week is going well!  Can you believe that August is half-way over??  I have seen lots of Social Media posts about kids already going back to school; the kids in my area go back next week!  Eek!  I imagine that means that there's a lot of last minute shopping, meal-planning, and organization happening for many households.  (Or all households, really.  I mean, everyone has shopping, meal-planning, and organization to do!) Well, I'd like to share with you a quick and easy 3D project that you may be able to utilize for this busy Back-to-School Rush!  I shared it with a group of ladies a couple weeks ago at a Crop Event and it was huge hit! This multi-purpose Gift Box is super versatile!  You can use it if you want to present your kiddo's new teacher with a little summin'-summin' to start the year off, as a special way to present a home-baked cookie treat to a loved one in their lunchbox, or if you need a vessel to hold some
