Sweets for Your Sweetie!

Hello SOC loves!  With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought I would share a pretty simple, but adorable way to package up some yummy chocolate.

We love to make handmade gifts at our house and these hand-wrapped Hershey bars are a great treat for your sweetie, teachers or friends.  What's a little chocolate every now and then, right?  They are super cute and super easy to do.

For this project, grab the following:

Valentine Papers
Paper cutter
Solid colored and white cardstock (for stamping)
Your favorite ink
Ribbon (plain or decorative)

For the wrapper, cut patterned paper about inches 7 inches wide by 5.5 inches long (you can adjust the length depending on how much you want to the original wrapper to show or not.  Apply adhesive to one edge, wrap around the hershey bar and secure in the back.

Now it's time to embellish!  I cut some 1 3/4 inch by 5 inch strips, and free-hand cut a wide V at the bottom to make long pennants. Adhere them to the front.

Next, I cut some 2 1/4 inch scalloped squares on my Cricut, and layered a stamped image on top. You can use any shape you like :)

Once you adhere your stamped image, top your wrapper off with a cute bow (I like big, chunky bows) and your gift treat is ready!

Supplies used for this project:
Pattened paper: Recollections
Solid cardstock: Recollections
Stamps: Michaels Dollar Bin
Ribbon: Michaels Clearance Bin
Ink: Black StazOn

What are you making this Valentine's Day?
