Easy Gift Idea

KitKat 4Everyone, including me, is always looking for cheap, easy gift ideas that look really great.  That’s why I am so glad I was shown this simple idea – and why I’m passing it on to all of you.  🙂  Today’s project is a gift wrapped candy bar.  A kit-kat bar, to be exact.  I cut a piece of Designer Paper into a 6″x6″ square, set the kit-kat bar in the center, put adheasive on all four sides of the paper, and folded the two sides down.  I used my crimper to seal shut the remaining two sides.  I tied it all off with a piece of ribbon (I find the wider ribbon looks best) and created a little tag to go along with it.  All in all this took me five minutes.

These are great to make as favors for a party or as a simple thank you gift for someone.  They are inexpensive (you can get four “wrappers” out of one piece of designer paper!) and very quick to make.  I love making these for guests at my Stampin’ Up! workshops and everyone always adores them.  I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate?

I’m Back!

Cards 072Hi folks!  I am finally back after taking a break for the birth of my son.  Here is a card that I made just last weekend for a wedding.  I used the card on page 197 of the Idea Book and Catalog for inspiration.  I think it turned out rather lovely.  I used my big shot to cut out the leaves and layered them with a flower from the Pretties kit.  A green rhinestone brad finished it off.

Supplies:  Chocolate Chip cardstock, Maine Blueberry DSP (retired), Whisper White cardstock, Old Olive cardstock, Pretties Kit, Ice Rhinestone brads, Scalloped Oval punch, Large Oval punch, Scalloped Edge punch, Paper Piercer, Big Shot
