Love chocolate!

Winners badge

I made a couple of little chocolate bar wraps for my two little Grandsons
for Valentine's Day.
They aren't allowed too much chocolate so thought this little bar would be perfect.
I used a stamp set I have had for years but rarely gets used!!

For my gifts I used:
red card stock
tutti circle die
Neenah stamping card
memento tuxedo black ink, red distress ink
Penny Black every which way stamp
Sentiment stamp unbranded
Flower and heart punches
red gems
coloured with promarkers

I cut the card stock 11.5 inches x 2 inches
I creased it at 3/4'' mark, then 5'', then 51/4'' on my score board.

I put a thin line of 3d foam along the first fold, creased and stuck.

I put a few sticky dots to secure the chocolate bar and put in place
It's now ready to decorate!

I am entering this into

Snow has decided to visit us yet again. Honestly this is getting mad.
I can't remember ever having this much snow so early in the year.
Keep warm people!
