Say Thank You with Chocolate!

Chalk Talk meet Dark Chocolate - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comI spent the past week in Salt Lake City along with close to 6,000 other Stampin’ Up demonstrators as we celebrated Stampin’ Up’s 25 Anniversary.  What an amazing week it was!

One of the things we LOVE to share are thank you gifts to our uplines.  It’s the perfect time for us to let our mentors know how much they mean to us.  Leslie is a dear, dear friend and upline to me.  One thing I KNOW about Leslie is that she loves DARK CHOCOLATE more than anything.  We both do.  🙂  I wanted to treat her to her special indulgence while she was in Salt Lake so I created this simple bag filled with a dozen of her favorites.  I had so much fun creating this project along with a few other fun things I know she likes.

Chalk Talk meet Dark Chocolate - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comTo create this treat bag:

  1. Place 12 Hershey Miniatures in a 4″ x 6″ cello bag.
  2. Place a piece of cardstock 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ behind the chocolates.  This gives the bag some stability.  
  3. Staple the bag closed.
  4. Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper 3 1/2″ x 7 1/2″.  Score at 6″.
  5. Place Sticky Strip adhesive on the Designer Series Paper and adhere to cello bag.  The top of the bag will touch the scoreline.
  6. Tie a piece of ribbon around the front in either a square knot or bow.
  7. Add a tag using the Chalk Talk Bundle

Here are the supplies I used on my Chocolate Thank You Gift:

  • Chalk Talk Bundle (stamp set & Framelits)  132731 (wood)  132730 (clear)
  • 4″ x 6″ Cello Bags (50)   102757
  • Quatrefancy Designer Series Paper   130141
  • Island Indigo cardstock   122923
  • Daffodil Delight Seam Binding   125583
  • White Bakers Twine   124262

If you’re ever in need of a quick gift, consider the gift of chocolate.  It can’t be beat!

I wish I could make up a chocolate thank you bag to each and every one of you!  I appreciate you all so much!

Have a FANTABULOUS day today!!!

    Connie I just love your videos, projects and ideas. You were right behind us in one of the general sessions and I felt like there was royalty present (you not me…lol)!

    Cute project, Connie! I love little tiny gifties but also having something more substantial like this is good to have instructions for too. A few packs of those 4 x 6 bags will have to be in one of my next orders now.

    I just hope for your sake that Little Debbie isn’t the jealous sort, you mentioning your feelings for dark chocolate and all…
