So what do Stamp Club Hostesses and chocolate have in common? A sneak
peek at a new stamp set called Really Good Greetings. I selected the verse Finally A Day That Really Is All About You. Most people might think to use that as a birthday sentiment. In this case I used it for my Stamp Club Members. When it is their turn to be hostess, the day is all about them and stamping. How, awesome is that?

What? You want a close up of that verse? Well here you go. Isn’t it just cute? An you want to know how to make one of these cute little holders yourself? Super easy.
First start with a piece of Designer Series Paper measuring 9 3/4″x 3 1/4″. Score at 3 14″ and 6 1/2″ inches. You should now have three equal parts.
Cut the last third at a diagonal. Place red sticky strip at the bottom to hold the pocket securely. Wrap with a coordinating ribbon and decorate. Insert a yummy chocolate of choice.
I decorated mine with the new stamp set Really Good Greetings, punched with a circle punch and layered on the large scallop punch.
Here are the four designs I made from the one package of Designer Series Paper. Sunshine & Sprinkles. I just love this paper and even the name of it is so cheery and fun. I will be sad to see it go away at the end of May.
Now I have a little story to tell you. After I finished creating a dozen and a half of these cute little chocolate holders, my friend Loni sent an email out saying she was setting up a blog hop this weekend. The theme being “Hostess Gifts”. I am not kidding I had just finished about 10 minutes before I got the email. I said sure, I just finished a bunch of hostess gifts. These items don’t have to be for a hostess. They can be for teachers, co-workers or a friend you are thinking of. If you would like to see other small gifts you could make for someone, click here.
