Hello Everyone! Today I am making a chocolate treat sleeves using the pattern paper “Tropical Fruit” from Collection 3 by SFL! First thing I needed to do was trim down the pattern paper to 1″ x 3″ pieces. I then wrap the pieces of paper around each chocolate. I don’t recommend liquid glue unless you want to hold them while they dry.
Once all of my chocolates are covered with the pattern paper, I trimmed down some card stock to 2″ x 6 1/4″ to put into the cellophane bag. It gives some stability for your treat sleeve. For extra support, you could score each side at 1/8″ on each (long) side so there is a “wall” on each side. The clear, cellophane bags I am using I purchased at a local big chain craft store. (They are advertised as covered pretzel bags.)
Once my treat sleeves are done, I need a tag for each. I used the smallest tag die I had available to make my tags. I die cut a tag from 110lb white card stock and then die cut some pattern paper. I adhered the pattern paper onto the white tag “base” and then used the bottom half of the tag to trim some more pattern paper to put on the bottom of the tag. I thought it would look fun to have 2 patterns. To separate the patterns, I added a strip of white card stock. This was also a great place to add our “to” and “from”.
I hope you enjoyed this fun, papercrafting project. I love to make these chocolate treats. They are a fun way to use pattern paper scraps and they make great little treats for family, friends and co-workers without spending a lot of money.
