Christmas Chocolate Wrappers

Hi there! Hope you are doing well. How are your Christmas projects coming along? Only 10 days left until Christmas! I'm realizing how little time there is until Christmas! Trying not to think about how much I still have left to do!!

Today I'm sharing with you some Christmas chocolate bar treats I wrapped up a few days ago to hand out. (Read through the post and I'll reveal at the end what's inside. :)

I wrapped them in some solid red wrapping paper I bought at Party City. I also picked up several other solid colors. It's handy to buy plain wrapping paper so you can dress it up any way you want and for many occasions too. This red paper would also work for Valentine's Day and birthdays too!

Then I tied some PTI white grosgrain around the bar along with some metallic gold elastic string and attached a small gold bell to each.

I embossed the tree tag onto PTI white shimmer cardstock. The tag is from PTI's 2008 Holiday Tags. It was my very first PTI purchase a couple years ago and it's still one of my very favorites. There are so many bits and pieces that you can use this set for many Christmases!

Then I attached some mini pearls to look like little ornament decorations. I am entering this into the Passion for Papertrey challenge to use pearls in your project. I am also linking this to the Belli Challenge to use Christmas embellishments in your project.

And here's what inside!

They are Croatian chocolate bars in several flavors: hazelnet, caramel, etc. Croatian chocolate is amazing! It is full of soft flavor (often hazelnut), but not too sweet.

And here are the bars that I wrapped, all ready to be given away! Yum!

Thanks for stopping by today. I really appreciate it and hope your Christmas preparations are going well. Have a wonderful and sunny wintery day!

Such thought put into every element of this gift, Monica. I love the solid red packaging. It makes the ribbon and tag stand out so nicely. Love the embossing on the tag with the pearls.

What a lovely treat Monica! I love the gold embossing on shimmer cardstock with pearls - very elegant looking (and shiny). Love the little bells too. Now I will have to find some.

These look so pretty and it is such a good tip to buy plain wrapping paper I'll start looking for it in the sales after Christmas. Have a great holiday.

Beautiful! I like the pearls on the tree images. Red and cream has definately been my 'go to' Christmas combination this year.
