12 days of Christmas {projects} - day 9

Christmas Project #9
Ghiradelli Chocolate Holder

This next project is an idea I got from the talented Jill at Jill's Card Creations last Christmas. I made about 20 of them for this year's craft bazaar. I purchased the Peppermint Bark Ghiradelli Chocolates to use inside each of the holders...I love peppermint bark!

Please note: For the craft bazaars I participate in, I typically try to use up retired DSP and save the current DSP for events that I host. Therefore, this is the reason many of these projects I am posting in my 12 Days of Christmas {Projects} uses retired DSP. Any of these projects can be easily changed with current DSP, if desired!

Cut a piece of Garden Green card stock 3" x 8".
Score lengthwise at 3-14/16" and 4-2/16"

Open the piece of paper all the way and slip the Word Window punch into the paper until you can't go any further. You will want it off centered a bit.

The chocolate will not fit with only one punch...

Place the Word Window punch in again as far as it will go and then move it a little to the right.

Fold up the paper so the pieces are together. Using the 1/8" Circle punch make two holes about 1/4" apart.

To decorate the front, I used a piece of striped DSP (from retired Candy Cane Christmas) cut 1-12/16" x 2-14/16"and two strips using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch (2-14/16" in length). I also used a sentiment from the Sweet Season stamp set and punched it out with the Decorative Label punch.

You will need an 11" piece of thin ribbon (I used 1/8" Real Red Taffeta ribbon). Thread through the back and then tie into a bow.

Pull out the treat...and eat! ;)

Have a wonderful weekend!
