Chocolate Bar "Book" for Valentine's Treats

Do you remember Lifesaver "books"?  This is a different take on that.. with 2 Hershey bars.  








As I created this treat holder, I learned a few things about Hershey Bars!  They come in slightly different sizes, with some longer, some shorter, some wider and some curvier!  So there are 2 options to make this Chocolate Book.


If you use the Dark Hershey Bars, they are longer and skinner so you cut your paper accordingly.  Cut the paper 6 1/2 x 5 3/4, score on the short side 2 3/8, 2 7/8, the top layer is x 2 x 6 1/4 embossed


If you use the Almond Bars, they are short but curvier, so cut your paper a little shorter but a little wider to accomodate the curve. Cut the paper 6 x 5 1/4 score on the short side 2 1/4, 2 1/2, top layer is 2 x 5 3/4


To decorate, I added a top layer and dry embossed it with the new Gingham embossing folder (any folder will work well!)


I adhere by Chocolate bars to the Early Express cardstock, wrapped a ribbon (about 28") and decorated the front with the embossed top layer and 2 hearts.  I chose a gold foil heart for the Almond bars. 


We are making this project at our Valentines Day party this Sunday Feb 6 3pm by Zoom (so all can join in).  Let me know if you'd like to be part of the team and this party!  We have some fun games and creativity planned.  You can reach me on MaryKate@MaryKateScott.com


I'm highly recommending you buy the 6 pack of Hershey bars.. you'll want to make an extra "book" and it's possible that between the grocery store and home... 1 might disappear .. and maybe as you make them you might need a snack?



Happy crafting! MaryKate

Every Chapter - A fun book club card

 My library celebrated their 40th anniversary of "Friends of the Library". I made tent cards for the tables.




So it's a regular card 4 1/4 x 11 but both sides had the "front" of the card.  


I embossed in silver for some shine. I was asked to use the library's colors... which are Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody and Gorgeous Grape -- all colors I love (but not together!) I thought the colors were quite rich together.

So I used some of the Free Sale-A-Bration paper (Marbleous) and I think it kept the look but softened it.

The set is called Every Chapter and I love it!

I'll be using this at my upcoming library class Feb 4 and 5 (2-330pm both days) and free!! No cost, the library provides me with a supply fee.  Details on the Workshop tab. Hope to see you there.


Questions? I'm here... MaryKate@MaryKateScott.com

Birthday Cards - a fun kit with Light the Candles, video included

Hi all!


This is a super fun birthday card kit.  The kit makes 8 cards (great for men, women, children), just fun birthday cake and candles! 


Click here to see me make the cards it's a short video, I make just 2 (I know you are busy crafters!)


Kits are available in my online store, you click on the cart and select "kits" from the product list.  


I made up the 2nd card as designed and then also with a "wonky" look.. which do you prefer?


Everything you need is in the kit: all the project supplies, the stamp set, ink, block and adhesives.  I love that it's so portable.  Kits are perfect if you are away from your own craft room (perhaps you are a snowbird?).


Here's a link to the instructions (if you'd like to see how the cards go together).

Click here for the instruction set

Lot's of choices with our Kits collection.  


Let me know if you have questions! 

Happy Crafting, MaryKate
