Mixed Up Saturday
Good morning Ladies,
Welcome to another 'Mixed Up Saturday'
First up ........
Karen's Chocolate Bar Wrapper Tutorial
The Wrapper i shared on Thursday
Karen's Christmas Wrapper
1) Select chocolate bar. This one actually had a paper wrapper but it doesn't have to be.Measure length of wrapper and circumference of wrapper and add 5cm. Imy case 15cmx23cm
2) Choose background paper, patterned, stamped etc and cut to size. It needs to be paper, card is too stiff
3) Choose appropriate dies, as my background paper (which I'd coloured turquoise in Serif to match the foiling) I used Sue Wilson's Let it Snow. I cut this from white card that had a sticky sheet adhered to it. Covered the die cut with MCS glitter.
Tags are Sue W Pierced Flags . I backed the patterned one with white card to strengthen it
4) I wrapped the paper around the chocolate bar and stuck with tape.
5) Add decorations
If I'd thought more about it I think I would have shadowed the "Let it Snow" with navy or something.
I don't know if this helps, it really does depend on the size of the chocolate bar as to dimensions etc. I'm going to try another one with a Kit Kat as the wrapper is red and decorate it with poinsettia
Lots of love
Thank you so much for taking the time to create that Fantastic Tutorial
Karen, it explains really clearly how to create one of these
Amazing Wrappers, this will definitely be on my
'To Do' list, thanks again

Janet's Easter Cups
Janet looked back to the 'Mug' tutorial i did last year to create these two amazing
Mugs for Easter Eggs, Janet I love the card that you have chosen for your mugs,
That pretty blue one with those cute little flowers reminds me of a
Wedgewood Mug we have, it's so pretty. The brown and Gold
Mug looks perfect for those pesky men!
