Hersey's, Adult Party Favors!!

No...not that kind. Just a nice party favor you can offer at any type of party!


 I have been extremely busy planning for my mom's 70 Th birthday party. I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect!

Go from this:
 To this!!!

 All I needed was the chocolate, because like most of you I have an endless supply of crafts on hand! I even had two sets of the pretzel wraps that I never used!

 I added the double stick tape and folded the scrapbook paper tight, over the candy...


 I have to admit, it would have taken FOREVER with out my Cricut. I do heart my Cricut very much. Cut out the scrapbook paper to fit the mini-chocolate bars and the used heavy cardstock for the tray.


 I am going to do the same at Christmas and will offer all the cut outs on line!!

I hope my mom will love them. I have been putting a lot into her party. You already saw my vintage lawn chairs all spruced up. Wait until you see the banner I am making!!

Bisous!

  2. I've not had much time to visit lately so am trying to catch up this afternoon while it is raining. Yes, we are finally getting some much needed rain! Yea!!! Which means I can't be in the garden and can sit with my computer. Ha! Ha!
    This is a darling idea! I think your mom is going to be very pleased with all that you are doing to make her 70 birthday celebration really special ~ Sarah

    1. Thank you so much, Sarah! I think my mom does appreciate all I do. I tried to keep the guest list a secret and she just couldn't help meddling in it. Everything else I have kept secret!

  10. You made those chocolates look so beautiful. I think that Hersheys might consider a repackaging their chocolates after seeing these beauties. I am sure your mom and all the guests will love these.
