I used the 1.55 oz full-size Hershey's Chocolate bars. All papers were adhered with ATG tape.
I used regular 24 pound printer paper because it is more flexible than cardstock... and it doesn't need to be acid-free since seven-year-olds will be ripping the wrappers off! I trimmed the white paper to 5-1/2" x 6" and edge-punched the short edges.
I used scrapbooking paper (again, I like the lighter weight for wrapping) for the pink, second wrap. These were trimmed to 4-1/2" x 5-1/2". I edge punched the long edges.
My decorations for the tops:
- The scalloped circles and shadows were cut from Mini Monograms on the Expression (page 129) at 1-3/4".
- The banner was cut on the Imagine from Enjoy the Seasons (layer on page 6) at 1.3 true size. Text was hand-written on the banner.
- The heart was cut on the Imagine from Enjoy the Seasons (layer on page 7) at 1.5 relative size.
Anyone else craving chocolate now?
My daughter goes to a Christian school, so the backs displayed a sticker I printed with a Bible verse that I love:
Fill us at day break with your love,
that all our days we may sing for joy.
The idea of using a Bible verse on the Valentines came from one of my favorite blogs, Catholic Icing. It is a cute site featuring lots of ideas for kids!
