Chocolate Lover's Survival Kit
Happy Friday, Friends! Jana here! I've been getting excited for Valentine's Day . . . my kids and I have started on their class Valentine cards and I've been thinking of something special to give their teachers, grandparents and other close friends.
If you are anything like me Valentine's Day = Chocolate! So what better gift to give fellow chocolate lovers than a Chocolate Survival Kit?! :D
I had a bead organizer on hand that I picked up at a craft store a few months back. I believe it was $2. You can also find containers like these at dollar stores.
I decorated the front with cute patterned papers from the Object of My Affection kit and Brown Lush papers by My Mind's Eye. I embossed the top layer with a Cuttlebug Valentine embossing folder I purchased from HSN. I then die cut the letters out of cardstock using the Olivia (brown) and Red Tag Sale (white) alphabet dies for the Cuttlebug. I embellished my label with some ribbon, paper hearts and dimensional stickers to finish it off.
Inside I filled the compartments with all kinds of chocolate treats. They look so cute and colorful presented this way! I hope the recipients will be delighted with their kits full of chocolate. :)
