Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge - Chocolate Pockets

Hey there! This month's challenge from PTI was to use one of their stamp sets that you've never used before and haven't used in a while.  Sign me up! I love any excuse to get crafty.

So...I dusted off my "Mixed Messages" and "Garden of Life" sets to create what I'm calling Chocolate Pockets for Valentine's Day.

Just take a small piece of wool felt, fold it over and stitch on each side. I'm loving those decorative stitches. Then, I die cut a piece of My Mind's Eye patterned paper using the Spellbinder's vintage label die. I used the Ghirardelli square chocolates as my measurment guide.

I forgot how much I love the stamps from Garden of Life. The two-step stamping makes coloring the images a breeze. PTI: If ya'll are listening, please, please design some more of these two-step stamps.

I added a little sentiment from Mixed Messages to each label. They are the perfect size for this!

These were so easy to make! I'll definitely be using these Chocolate Pockets again. You could use these for anything small that's packaged - tea bags, hot chocolate, notepad, eye shadow, M&M's...basically any packaged candy.

Thanks for visiting and hope to see you back,

Traci

These are totally incredible. I have to try this! I don't have such cool, decorative stitching as you have (wow!), but what an easy idea! Plus I haven't used Mixed Messages in ages, but this is the perfect, smaller scale project.
