Easy Gift wrapping ~ part 2

Chocolate is comfort food ~ we all know how damaging it can be on our calories count but who would’nt like to receive a chocolate bar on a dull or gloomy day ?? or in maths period when the xs and ys are flying in a state of confusion ? or when trying hard to make a small but significant difference in the life of someone feeling alone and lost ??

And ofcourse, you add that punch to your lovely chocolate bar, if you dress it up just a little. Here’s how :

Just cut a piece of design paper the size of the length of the bar. Glue the ends of the paper together. A simple round/oval/square  diecut with a heartwarming message added to the bar and you are ready for making someone feel very special.

Embellishing can go on forever, hence I prefer to stick to simplicity. Afterall a caringly wrapped chocolate is the focus, isnt it ?

Voila, here is a pretty presentation :

Easy Gift wrapping

Over the past 2 months, not only becoz two of the boys celebrated their birthdays, but also becoz it was an opportunity to give a few yummy gifts to some of their favorite friends and teachers, I managed to capture a few pictures of some of the gifts that were wrapped elegantly and quiet literally “sweetly” !

These are really all too easy ~ infact all you need are :-

  • some scraps of design paper or any gift wrapping paper to make tags from,
  • some cellophane sleeves,
  • some diecuts to shape tags 
  • some edge punches (you could also use craft shears for this ),
  •  some rubberstamps (of handwrite the tags)
  •  A few chocolates or candy. 
  • Stapler

Ofcourse you can add as many embellishments as possible ~ but  if you know me, then you know, I always prefer simplicity and elegance. 

Here are the first of them in this series :-

Teacher Treat Bags

Hello friends and thank you ever so much for all the lovely comments on my previous post about the chocolate wrapper. So glad you guys appreciated it.

I made these last week for an order of just 2o treat bags.  I think, it was for a parent/teacher meeting for two primary school girls.

These were one of the simplest bags I made, they did not want any thing fancy like ribbons or twines !! I was so tempted to try out atleast “SOMETHING” but had to resist it for another assisgnment and I think, the whole project was nearly done in just under two hours !!

Here are the pics.
