Yesterday was one of my TA’s birthdays. Boys turning 14 don’t want a lot of fluff, just cut to the good stuff. I stopped on the way to school and picked up a large chocolate bar and wrapped in this awesome, retired, water color patterned dsp. He is also an artist, so I knew he would appreciate the water color theme going on.
It was so easy to assemble. I placed tear n’ tape along three sides and wrapped the large candy up. First I wrapped the paper around fairly tight and sealed it like a flat tube. Then, I just removed the other strips of tape to flat seal the ends.
I took the scraps of my linen thread and wrapped them around and tied a knot. I just took my hand painted, and stamped of course, gift tag and looped it through one of the extra strands. Another simple knot and this lovely package was ready to go. Sorry I didn’t get a photo of the finished product, but I wasn’t sure just what candy I would be able to get. Stores out in the country don’t always have a large selection. The way the paper was prepared I could have turned it into a large sour cream container styled box and been just fine as well. For the win!
Have a creative day!
