Valentine's Day Chocolate Gift

I had a coupon!!! LOL When don't I have a coupon??? It was a buy one gt one free for the larger 1.3 oz. Ghiradelli chocolates. And I did instruct DH not to eat them!!! He's such a chocoholic!! He reads my blog so now he will see exactly what I did with that candy he wasn't allowed to eat!! He can have it but............ NOT until Valentine's Day!!!

To make this holder I cut a piece of white card stock 4-1/4" x 7". I scored it at 1", 1-3/8", 4-1/8" and 4-1/2". You can set the candy inside and tape the back shut.

For the front I cut a piece of decorative paper 2-1/2" x 4". The little strip is cut from Really Rust card stock and measures 2-1/2" x 1-3/8". The decorative paper strip is cut 2-1/2" x 1-3/16". I tied the ribbon around the strip. Actually what I did was I cut a piece of ribbon about 3" long and folded the edges around the front and taped raw edges on the back. I then cut a small piece of ribbon and tied the bow. I like using this method because I can slide the bow where I want and the bow always lays nice too.

I stamped the mouse on watercolor paper and colored it in with markers and blender pen. The shirt is decorative paper. I stamped the mouse on the decorative paper and then cut the shirt out and glued it in place. I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the flower on the heart and then cut the watercolor paper to measure 1-3/4" x 1-3/4". I cut a piece of Really Rust 2" x 2" and taped the two pieces together. I taped all the layers in place, adjusted the bow and it was finished.

It was a very quick project and it will make a nice gift, right DH?? LOL

Thank you for stopping by,
