Wrapped Chocolates Portfolio Case

By

Baby Quilt

This week, I’ve had to move aside my adhesive, scissors and stamps to make room for fabric.  Why?

This grandma has grandson #2 arriving anyday now and I have to get his quilt finished before he makes his grand appearance!!  One more full day and it should be ready to wrap around his sweet little frame!!  I can’t wait to see him but I know my daughter is more ansy than I am!! LOL

BUT – I didn’t forget that I’ve promised many of you the instructions and cutting dimensions for this wrapped chocolate case that I took with me to the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference last month!

Leadership 2013 friend gifts-1

Thanks for patiently waiting for these instructions -they are long overdue:

1.  Folder – cut cardstock at 6″ x 6 7/8″ (I used Pool Party).  Score the 6 7/8″ side at 3 1/4″ and 3 5/8″.

2.  Decorate the front panel as desired.

3.  Pockets – cut 3 pieces at 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.  Score three sides (1 long and both short sides) at 3/8″ and 3/4″.  Cut out unnecessary corner boxes created by scoring on each pocket as shown in photo below:

4.  On all 3 pockets, fold on all score lines and fold up securing tabs with glue dots creating open-backed pockets.

5.  Wrap chocolates using strips of DSP cut at 7/8″ x 4 1/2″.  I used these chocolates found at Costco:

6.  Attach pockets to inside of folder and insert two chocolates into each pocket.  Adhere the chocolates in highest pocket with glue dots so they don’t slip out.

7.  Punch 1 hole in front panel and 1 hole in back panel and thread ribbon through holes and tie closed.

You’re all done – happy crafting!

Supplies used:

Stamps – Tea Shoppe, Apothecary Art

Ink & Paper – Sycamore Street DSP, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White

Accessories – Big Shot & Label Collection Framelits, Boho Blossoms punch, silver brads, Sycamore Street ribbon pack, 1/8?hole punch

TTFN!
