Stampers Dozen Blog Hop

 One of my favorite little gifts to give at Christmas is a giant sized candy bar!  Who doesn't like a big chunk of chocolate??  

What I have done for many, many years, is take one of these gaint bars and "dress them up" - so that they look special!  A great,inexpensive gift for a neighbor, a secretary, a friend, a teacher, get the idea!!  

I have two different candy bars to share today -
Here is the first - it is not tradtional Christmas colors -but has a shabby feel to it - my favorite style!

I used the star framelits, my Big Shot and the Many Merry Stars stamp set to create all the different stars.  I sponged them with crumb cake ink and added some bling with rhinestones. The bar was wrapped with a sheet of Typeset Designer Series Paper.  I also used a piece of the lovely Cherry Cobbler ribbon - it is so great to work with and ties up into a bow very easily!

 My second candy bar is a simpler, quicker version -  I used the Many Merry Stars kit - I wrapped the giant candy bar with a small piece of our wrapping paper and tied it up with a cherry cobbler bow.  The stars, and wooden embellishment  are all a part of the Many Merry Stars kit - I simply popped them out (they are already pre cut) and added a few dimensionals, and a greeting and my bar was ready!

Here is a close up of the tag -
