Chocolate Teddy Bears!

Good Morning! Today's share is a simple, easy Christmas goodie gift. I've covered a Lindt chocolate bar with a partial sheet of retired SU! designer paper, tied it up with the marvelous Old Olive wide striped grosgrain and added a cute little stamped Teddy Bear image with a "for you" at the top. The image is a very old SU! and I cannot find it in my stamp room right now to give you the name. Its probably under something; when I locate it, I'll update this post!! :-)

To measure dsp for the chocolate bar, I measured the length of the bar and cut my designer paper at this measurement out of a 12 x 12 paper. Then, I carefully wrapped the dsp around the bar, finger creasing at the sides (the Lindt bars have about 1/4 inch sides on the box) and then made a mark where I wanted to cut the dsp for width. This way, the dsp is sure to fit around the bar with a comfortable overlap. Sticky strip was then applied to the length of the paper and adhered. Very simple!

We are finally experiencing some warmer weather here in Alberta, thank goodness!!! I just hope it doesn't warm up too much, causing the snow to melt !~ Christmas without snow isn't quite the same to me. :-)

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!!
