Happy Easter Eve! I thought I’d share a couple of super simple treat wrappers with you, featuring the Sweet Easter stamp set from Sweet November Stamps.
Fun fact: Despite being a secular country, Norway has the longest Easter holiday in the world. I happen to love that fact, and we have some other elements to our Easter that are unique to Norway, like reading crime novels and watching murder mystery movies/miniseries on TV. An Easter without a good crime novel sounds like a miserable one, to be honest. I’m spending all 10 days of my Easter holiday at our cabin in the mountains with my family. Before leaving, I made these cute chocolate wrappers that I’m giving the kids today. Chocolate is a natural part of Easter, after all. I colored these cute images from the Sweet Easter stamp set with my Copics and fussy cut them. I put them aside while I worked on the rest of these little chocolate wrappers.
I used patterned paper from Papirdesign for both of these, wrapping the paper around the chocolate, adding glue to the seam and one end. Super simple, right? I added my colored chickens with foam tape and die cut the letters for their names using the Connected alpha die set from My Favorite Things. I die cut two layers from white cardstock and the top layer from Bright Buttercup cardstock from Papertrey Ink for the yellow, and patterned paper from Papirdesign for the purple.
I created slits at the open end to feed ribbon through, and put the ribbon around the chocolate. By doing this, the chocolate comes out of the wrapper when you pull on the ribbon. I put what’s known as fairy tale chocolate inside both of these. There are different illustrations from well known fairy tales on the chocolate wrapper, and the fairy tale itself is written on the inside. The fairy tale depicted on this wrapper is about a pancake that doesn’t want to get eaten, so he runs away from everyone and everything trying to eat him… until he meets a pig.
The color palette for these two couldn’t possibly be any simpler, right?
