Amy McNeil is one of my team members. At our June meeting, she brought along this project for all of us to make. She had made these for the teachers at her children's school and thought we would enjoy making it. Oh, she knows us well. Papercrafting and chocolate is a wonderful combination. But Swiss Toblerone chocolate is over-the-top!
The five new In Colors and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (DSP) were used on this project. The flowers are cut from the Pansy Punch and have Gold Faceted Gems in the center. The flowers are attached with Dimensionals. Gently bend the flower petals forward so they arent't flat. The leaves are from the Blossom Builder Punch and are attached with Glue Dots. You can also gently bend them to make them look more realistic.
The DSP is 4" x 6" and scored at 1 1/8", 2 1/4" and 3 3/8". It is wrapped around the chocolate and adhered with a piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Since the Toblerone chocolate is 6 1/2" long and the DSP is 6" long, clever Amy added a 1" x 4" strip of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock to cover the rest of the chocolate with a little overlap. It was cut with the Paper Snips to look like grass. A piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive was added to the bottom edge of the Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock. Then it was wrapped around the bottom of the candy bar. Gently bend the grass so it looks fluffy, not flat.
Thank you Amy for your kindness and creativity in sharing this fun project with us!

I'm a Guest Designer for Craft Project Central in July and today is the deadline for my project. The project is done. The tutorial is done. The step-by-step photographs are taken. But the photographs have to be edited, which is takes the longest. It is a time-consuming Thursday for me, but I'm enjoying it with the cool breeze coming through the windows. Have a great day!
