Chocolate anyone?

Just a quick little post today to share another idea for the new Jam Packed template and Well Preserved stamps from My Time Made Easy. This time, instead of jams and jellies I packaged up some chocolate sauce from Belgium! My sweet friend, Hanne, brought us several jars when she came to visit so I'm going to share ONE with a dear friend who is retiring! (She worked FOR me for several years - I'll miss her but wish her all the best!)


This is the full gift set - the jar of chocolate YUM YUM - it gets packaged in the Jam Packed box and I made a simple CAS card as well.  I  used Couture's Ganache CS and matted it with MTME Tea Parlor Digital paper! Close up of the front of the box. I added some ivory lace and ivory paper flowers to the edge to "dress it up" just a bit.


I wanted to also say THANK YOU for the work this gal did when she worked in my department. SO on top of the box I nicely fit a Stampin Up thank you sentiment within the Killer Curves stamp and cut file from MTME.


I kept the card simple ...



BUT look at the inside - it's got a little something special in it, too... (sentiments are Stampin Up)


I  added a strip of red CS to create a simple gift card pocket inside my card. There is a REALLY CUTE new sentiment coming from MTME on the red "pocket" (but I covered it up) - you'll be seeing more of THAT in August... (tease tease).

Here is the jar of yummo sauce.  I added ribbon to the rim and a tag to the top!

I will miss my friend and past employee. Even though she was no longer "officially" mine, she continued to help me with some projects! I know she loves chocolate and she is a paper crafter, quilter, beader, and jewelery maker so the gift card will be used for sure! I love that Lauren included a few non-jelly items in this fabulous stamp set AND that I had at my fingertips - this wonderful Jam Packed template to turn this into a fun gift ensemble!!! I'm giving it away today and I'm fairly certain it will be "THE HIT" of the day!!
