A "Sweet" Little Gift

Hello Stamping Friends,

How are you all doing with your holiday planning?  I'm getting there. Going to run out this afternoon and do some more shopping, tonight I'm going to maybe even start some baking. Who knows, with the weather forecast tomorrow, I may be able to bake all day long. Guess my shopping excursion this afternoon should include the baking aisle at the grocery store, just in case. Sometime in the next week, I NEED to get some Christmas cards made. My motto for the last several years has been: as long as they are postmarked on Christmas Eve than they were out before Christmas. It just may be that again this year.

Anyway, enough about me and onto why you really stopped by today, a Fabulous Friday posting with the Sisters in Stamping.  This week we decided to showcase some last minute little gift ideas.  I went with a sweet treat that is inexpensive so you can give something to everyone, friends, neighbors, co-workers, servers in restaurants, or just about anyone to brighten their holiday just a little more.

This is a wrapped chocolate bar from the sweetest place on earth. Did you figure out what kind of bar?  Well, here's a hint: it's located in Hershey, PA.  I used the Winter Frost Specialty paper to wrap the bar. I just love the sparkle in this striped paper and the one with the fancy design that the little banner is from. The silver is foiled. So sparkly in real life and makes the gift that much "sweeter."
I then made a fun accent for the front of the candy bar using the Festive Flurry Bundle. The fun part of this is that you can pop that right off the candy bar and then you have an ornament to hang from your tree. Now you are giving two gifts in one and what can be better than that?
Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping to see what other little gifts you can make for the friends and family on your lists.
