Candy Bar Card Holder "Thing"

 Don't you just love the title of this post?  LOL  Score Pal calls it a Candy Bar Card.  It's a very fun project.  I hope you decorate the front of yours better than I did the front of mine.  I may redo it later tonight.  I like the flower idea using the punch that goes with the Mixed Bunch set. And I did stamp one of the flower images from the Mixed Bunch set to put on the front.  

To make this fun project I did go to Score Pal's web site and download the instructions for their candy bar holder.  I did get confused reading them though.  I wasn't clear on what side to score on.  I normally tell people to "score on the short side" or "score on the long side."  It seems to be wording that everyone understands.  So I struggled with it for a bit and then decided to just put the candy bar down on the scoring pad and just made the holder from there.  I am planning on making another one so when I get it done I will post my instructions and measurements here for you.  

I used the Spice Cake decorative papers on the front, inside and even the back.  I had layered them on top of a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock.  The holder is made using a piece of Pool Party card stock.  It's such a fun and pretty color.  

These are very fun gifts to make for birthday parties, co-worker gifts plus many other events.  And decorated for the holidays it would make a great stocking stuffer too!  

I hope you have fun making them.  And like I said I will post my version of the instructions for you.  Mine is all one piece where the Score Pal one is two separate pieces.  Not that there is anything wrong with that, I just found their instructions difficult to follow.  I'm going to give their instructions another try.  I was in a bit of a hurry and the feeling of being rushed may have caused me to not quite understand what is going on with the instructions.  I'll keep you posted on that too!!! LOL  Ok, I'm off to teach a class at the bead shop! 

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
