A “Happy September” Chocolate Cozy

Sometime ago I saw this idea at my Card Club that I attend at my friend and SU! demonstrator’s house!  She called it a chocolate cozy and she had gotten the idea off of SplitCoastStampers in the gallery!! Here is a link to it!  The link tells you to go to this site PrettyPaperCards.com for a tutorial on how to make it!!

I decided that I wanted to make some of these for the office ladies, Principal and my son’s teacher at our elementary school.  I decided on the # 4 because that is how many cozies you can create from one 12 by 12 piece of patterned paper!

To make mine I cut a piece of Doodlebug Design paper that had apples on it – it was from the Fruit Stand Collection.  It was perfect for this project.  I also had an apple tag and a Doodlebug stamp set with an apple in it that I used in my decorative process. So I cut the paper into 4 – 6 by 6 squares, scored them according to the decorations in the tutorial listed above. Then folded it up the way it said to. I picked ribbon to match my paper and twine to tie it off with.  Added a stamped apple to either side and added a “Happy September” tag when I tied the twine!!

Here is a pictures of the front of my chocolate cozy’s:

Here I have given you a view from the side:

And then, finally a line-up of all 4 finished cozy’s – all ready for delivery:

They were pretty easy to make – the hardest thing was the scoring but after doing one I got the hang of it real quick – I did use my Martha Stewart scoring board for that!!  I suggest practicing on a spare piece of 6 by 6 paper so you get the hang of it and then you will always have a pattern also!

I gave these away this week and hope my recipients enjoyed them!

It was fun to add some chocolate to something beautiful and say “Happy September” to some ladies who do so much for our school!! They are always so awesome and helpful!!

Hope you will give these a try  – they really are fun and I have given you the places to go to understand how to make them!! So, please Go Forth – create beauty and share it!!!

    Yes, I guarantee that four people were absolutely delighted by these ‘sweet’ treats that came across their desks this week! Seriously: you win top honours in the “thoughtful and heart-warming” category, with all the beautiful things you create AND share! The chocolate cosies are exactly that: little nests of adorableness, the perfect size for a decadent treat. Fabulous and charming – precisely like you!! Glad to hear you wrote a note to Simply Create, Too! Fingers crossed!! There’s another call at Cardz 4 Guys….just sayin’ *grin*
    Hugs~c
