Valentine's Day Ghirardelli Chocolate Holders

Hi everyone !

For today's share,

I have done some Chocolate holders for Valentine's Day.
I love doing these little kind of gifts.

Here's how I made it :
1 pc. of 3"x8" ( SU Melon Mambo) cardstock.
Score it at 3 7/8" and at 4 1/8".
Then fold using your bone folder. It makes a nice crisp fold.
On one of the ends, punch a slot using the SU Word Window Punch.
Move the punch a bit to the left and punch again, then move it another time to the right and punch yet again. (Just so that the chocolate will pass through it).
1 pc. 2 3/4" x 2" Whisper White CS
1 pc. 2 1/2" x 1 3/4" Razzleberry Lemonade DSP

Accessories :

Stamps : Vintage Labels, Voeux Mignons.

Inks : Melon Mambo.

Papers : Melon Mambo, Whisper White CS and Razzleberry Lemonade DSP.

Ribbon : Regal rose 5/8" grosgrain.

Dimensionals, snail, small heart punch and scallop circle punch.

Here are a few more that I made.

Have fun and happy crafting.
