The 4 Weeks of Advent - part 2

Continuing on from my last advent gift post, this is another  very quick, simple and inexpensive gift idea, that I will be giving to colleagues in week 3 (of the 4 weeks up to Christmas)

The material/tools used to make these gifts are as follows:
The Big Score Board
Die Cutting/Embossing Machine
A Paper/Card Trimmer
Strong wet glue
Christmas Eve  A3 Double Sided Centura Pearl card stock
Leaves Are Falling Die from the Autumn Morning collection by Sara Davies A pack of Moser Roth White Mousse au Chocolate (£1.69 from Aldi - there are 5 mini bars in each pack)
Cinnamon Sticks
Red Berries
Dark Green Card stock
Some glitter glue
Merry Christmas peel offs

Cut a piece of card 9.5 cm x 12 cm
Score at 4.5 cm, 5.5cm 10cm and 11 cm

burnish your score lines and wrap around your mini chocolate bar

using strong wet glue on the last section thin section of your wrap, glue into place

cut and emboss a leaf from dark green cardstock

adhere a cinnamon stick to the top of the wrap.
add the leaf, carefully bending it around the cinnamon stick
add 3 wired berries (poking the wire under the leaf)
add some glitter glue to the leaf to add a bit of frosting/sparkle
