Carol N. sponsors and hosts the club. Each time we meet she and her husband carry a huge cart load of supplies and stamps for us to use into the meeting room. She provides everything we need to work all evening and so I wanted to make her a little thank you gift.
This is my interpretation of a chocolate survival kit that was posted on the Cricut MB this week. The tin is one of my "bargains" from the last SU clearance sale. Okieladybug and I ordered 30 of these, thinking they'd be large enough to hold sets of A2 cards.
When the order arrived, I realized that cards won't fit inside due to the rounded corners on the tins but we decided they'd be fine to put some recipe cards in for a gift or even some homemade candy. (Now, if I just knew where to buy homemade candy! LOL!)
Each time I make a new project I learn something NOT to do.
1. Don't use cardstock to wrap the candy bars. Even if it did come from the same paper pack that you decorated the tin with. Just about the time you get all the little bars wrestled around and wrapped, you will turn your back for a split second and they'll all magically unwrap themselves. Red line tape is the only thing I had that would keep the cardstock edges attached.
2. The next time Okie tells me I should buy something, I should listen! LOL! She raves about a product called Un-du for removing items with adhesive on them. My bling isn't straight, I didn't buy the Un-du, so they're just going to have to stay where they are. If I remove them the paper will tear.
Anyway, I'm sure Carol will be very gracious and tell me how pretty it turned out and that she loves it! At least the candy inside is good....ask me how I know!
