Well here I am again, letting DAYS go by without posting to my blog, sorry about that! I've been working late every day, and I have 3 holiday card classes this week too! I wanted to make some little treats for the girls coming over tonight, tomorrow, and Saturday, so if you're one of those girls don't look at this post!!
I picked up some Dove chocolates at the grocery store last night with the Two Tags die for the Big Shot in mind. This is what I came up with when I came home, with instructions in case you want to make some of your own! I left the miniature package on my grid paper for the picture so you can see how small it really is.
I used the Christmas Cocoa Specialty dsp for this project. I love the slight shimmer of some of the papers in this pack! First I used the Two Tags die (p. 198) to make my tag…make sure that the pattern of dsp that you WANT to see is facing DOWN when you run it through the Big Shot (the down side gets the better stitch marks).
Next, adhere your Dove chocolate in about the same spot I've adhered mine, using a dimensional. Also, punch a hole at the end using your Cropadile (the bigger hole punch side). I used a strip of Real Red cs 4" long to hold my little package closed, I found that ribbon was a little too bulky for my liking on something this small (no measurement on the width because it's pretty thin, just make it thin enough to fit through the punched hole). Wrap the red cs through the hole and adhere together in the back of the package using a Mini Glue Dot.
I stamped the Merry Christmas from the Delightful Decorations stamp set in Real Red on WW card stock, and also the snowflakes from Serene Snowflakes in Soft Suede. I know that having to use two different stamp sets for this project is not economical unless you already have the sets. You could also use the little Christmas tree from the Holiday Blitz stamp set, or anything else small enough for that matter! I punched the Merry Christmas out with the 3/4" Circle Punch, and the smallest snowflake with the 1/2" Circle Punch (p. 186)
Thanks for stopping by!
