Yesterday I shared with you all the fun we had this past weekend at the NJ Crop Weekends Winter Crop 2013. One of the activities I participated in was the Chocolate Candy Swap. A swap is basically a trade. The number of participants determines how many swaps you will need. In this swap there were 7 of us participating. We packaged our favorite chocolates as creatively (or not) as we wanted and brought enough for all the swappers!
With Valentine’s Day literally around the corner, let’s take a look at some of the creative ways you can package up some sweet treats! This first project is a stamped wine glass filled with chocolates! FYI – the swapper shared that if you use this technique the ink needs to be heat set. She purchased the glass ink at a local craft store.
This is a fun way to wrap up a candy bar. Just wrap up the candy bar like a package using your favorite patterned paper and then attach a stamped tag.
Here’s my swap. It is a treat tube filled with hugs and kisses! I used the Big Shot at the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die to create the flower on top of the tube. The center of the flower is piece of the Vanilla Flower Trim. I wrapped some Tea for Two Designer Series Paper to decorate the top and bottom of the treat tube.
I love this little milk carton filled with candies! The swapper made the milk carton out of half a sheet of 12x12 card stock. She wrapped the box with some More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper.
Our next crop is July 26-28, 2013. I’d love for you to join us for a day or the full weekend. Several packages are available. Check out our website by clicking here for all the details!
