Ghirardelli Easter

Hello crafty friends!  It's almost back to normal for me since my sister has left for California.  My planet is still very messy though... but there's no more excuse not to clean.

Anyway, while in Chicago last week, we went to the Ghirardelli store by Miracle Mile.  I've never seen so many Ghirardelli squares in a variety of flavors!  And you get a free one as you enter the store.  They also serve hot and cold drinks there as well.

So I bought a bunch of Ghirardelli squares to give to my co-workers for an early Easter treat.  To add a personal touch, I wrapped it with white cardstock and added two more layers for more dimension.  I wanted this to be a quick and easy project as I had 35 squares in mind. 

My base that is wrapped around the Ghirardelli square measured at 1.5 x 4.5.  It was then scored at 1, 1.25, 3 and 3.25 inches on the board.  Then I cut and embossed 1.5 white cardstock squares.  The sentiment was just plainly stamped, punched, and adhered with mounting tape.  Guess what?  I was able to do all 35 in less than an hour.

Materials used:
cardstock:  Wassau
image/sentiment:  Stampin' Up
ink:  Stampin' Up
tools:  Stampin' Up, Spellbinders
adhesive:  Scotch, mounting tape

These Easter treats will be handed out tomorrow.

'Til next blog!
