Technique Tuesday

Hi again! I'm back with another exciting post! This time I'm here to share a super fun tutorial! It involves CHOCOLATE, and a digi from Shelly's Images - so its gotta be good! Hope you like it!

This fun little chocolate filled purse would make a great favor for a shower, wedding, or even for a ladies tea! So versatile, fun, and easy to make - how can you go wrong?

Supply list:

2-1/2 " x 6-3/4" strip of cardstock
Glue Dots
4 Dove or Hershey Bliss chocolate squares
Image for inside, cs scrap for matting
Border Punch of choice

bone folder

Step 1:

Score strip of cardstock base horizontally at the following measurement marks:

- 1-1/2 inches
- 2 inches
- 4-1/4 inches
- 4-3/4 inches

Step 2:

Fold on score lines, pressing down firmly for crisp creases. Using your border punch, punch the smallest flap from the end, being sure that you work from the middle out (punch in the center first, then line up pattern to punch either side).

Step 3:

Using Glue Dots, adhere four chocolate squares as shown. Attach ribbon firmly below purse flap (as a purse strap) using a row of glue dots. Adhere colored, matted image to bottom of the inside flap.

Step 4:

Adhere rhinestones with Glue Dots as shown or in whatever style suits you. Add a small glue dot under purse flap as a closure. VOILA! You are done! Pretty simple right?
