Today is JustRite Christmas Blog Hop day. Most of the artists listed below created a samples with new JustRite Christmas stamps that just came out. Unfortunately mine didn’t get here in time, so I used stamps from the Christmas Stamp Ensemble.  I decided to make a cover for my favorite kind of Chocolate: Milka. Hm, hm, hmmmmm

The wrapper base is Whisper White cardstock, layered with Christmas Cocoa Specialty Paper from the upcoming Holiday Mini catalog. Underneath the patterned paper I added Real Red cardstock cut with Eyelet Borderabilities. Chocolate striped ribbon as tied around the wrapper and underneath I placed my layered sentiment.

I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip craft ink on Whisper White cardstock. It was embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing powder and was cut and embossed with Circle Nestabilities.  Then I stamped the snowflake border from the same set in Chocolate Chip and embossed it with Iridescent Embossing powder as well. I cut that out with a larger Circle Nestabilities.Under the sentiment layer I added a slightly bigger Real Red Circle cut and embossed with Nestabilities as well. For the base layer I cut and embossed a medallion with my Eyelet Shapeabilities. On the bottom right I added Felt Snowflakes from last years Holiday Mini catalog. They were attached to the sentiment layers with a 5/16″ Chocolate Jumbo Brad. The sentiment layer was attached to the wrapper with dimensionals.

I wrote a quick tutorial on how to put the Chocolate Wrapper together: 

 Supplies:

chocolatewrappersupplies.jpg

  • Chocolate Bar
  • Cardstock
  • Patterned Paper
  • Scor-Tape, or other strong adhesive
  • Scor-Pal, or other scoring tool
  • JustRite Christmas Stamp Ensemble and 3 1/4″ Stamp handle
  • Chocolate Craft Ink
  • Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder
  • 1 1/4″ wide Chocolate Striped Ribbon
  • Dimensionals

Step One:

chocolatewrapperstep1.jpg

Measure your candy bar. The length of cardstock cover will have to be a bit longer then the candy bar. You can figure out the length with this formular: 2 x width (here 3″) + 2x the thickness (here 1/2″) and 3/4″ or 1″ as a glue tab.

Step Two:

Cut your wrapper base and decorate.

(My cardstock measured 7 1/2″ x 8″, my decorated paper 6 3/4″ x 8″)

Step three:

  chocolatewrapperstep3.jpg

Score your layer at 3″ (width of candy bar), 3 1/2″ (width +thickness), 6 1/2″ (2xwidth +thickness), 7″ ( 2x width + 2x thickness).

I found out that it’s a bit hard to score more then one piece of cardstock layered with one Designer Paper. The Scor-It might work better if you need to score more then two layers at once.

Step four:

Prefold all the score lines. Add strong adhesive on your glue tab.

Step five:

Tape your wrapper together and slide your chocolate in.

Step Six:

Decorate your Chocolate Wrapper. If you tie your ribbon tight, your chocolate shouldn’t slip out.

Have fun browsing everyone’s projects.

  54. Oh, dear, now you’ve done it… you’ve kicked off a craving for the best chocolate in the world: MILKA!! I discovered this stuff while in language immersion school in Germany (Prien am Chiemsee) in the early ’80s, and have been on a continual quest ever since, in search of MORE MILKA! Any idea where it can be found here in the USA?

    I don’t quite understand the concept of wrapping up MILKA bars and giving them away, even at Christmas (wink), but this is a very pretty project.

    Smiles,
    Joyce Spear
