The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge: Dads and Grads

Father's day is coming soon and most Dads love chocolate! 
Here's a sweet project for Dads.
Don't look'll get this later!

A slider that holds a surprise chocolate bar!

Embossed using the Paisley folder in Cuttlebug

How to Make:
Small chocolate bar, such as Hershey with almonds:   Cut paper to wrap with at 5" x 6".  Hint:  If using 12" scrapbook paper...cut 5" at the top then flip paper to measure 6" and you will get 2 from the 12" paper.  I used scrap pieces, but most were 12" long and were at least 5" wide.  I embossed using the Paisley folder in my Cuttlebug.

Score at 4 1/2", 4", 2 1/4" and 1 3/4".  I don't use a scor-pal, I just measure on my paper cutter using the slide out ruler and then use a Popsicle stick (from rub-on's) pressing hard to score down the center of the blade indention on the cutter.  It works just fine and I don't have to buy another gadget or store it!

Punch hole at top through both top & back sheets.  Put scor-tape along edge of wrap, but don't remove paper yet.  Thread 20" piece of ribbon through back and bring down inside the candy bar on top of ribbon...bring ribbon up the candy bar and thread through the hole on other side of wrap.  Peel off scor-tape and adhere side.  Tie ribbon at top in knot.  Be careful to fold over the end of wrapper on bottom & top of candy bar so the ribbon has it secure to pull up & down easily.
Decorate your slider with a band of coordinating paper & any embellishments you want to add.

Go make some for the men in your life!

Dimensions for larger candy bar, such as regular Hershey's bar.
Wrap:  6"x6"
Score at 2 1/2", 2 3/4", 5 1/4" and 5 1/2".  20" ribbon piece.

 Fantastic Dad Project
