Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

Sweet Treats Blog Hop | Newton's Nook Designs

It's our 3rd Annual Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

The Newton's Nook Designs Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats - just in time for Valentines day! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

For my stop on this hop I created these fun chocolate holders:
Sweet Treats Blog Hop | Zoo Chocolate Holders by Jennifer Jackson | Wild about Zoo stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
These cute treat holders were created using the elephant and zebra from our Wild About Zoo stamp set! For the tags, I stamped the images onto watercolor paper with Ranger Archival black ink. I colored them using Zig Clean Color brush markers, keeping the colors simple gray and peach. Then I used a circle die to cut them out. 

I also added a little die cut heart onto each tag. The xoxo and polkadot heart are from the Darling Duos stamp set. I cut them out using the small heart from the  Darling Hearts Die Set

The wrap that goes around the chocolates was created using purple and dark pink cardstock. Here's how to make the wrap:
  1. Cut a piece of cardstock to 8.25 inches long by 2.25 inches wide. 
  2. Score the cardstock at 3.5 inches and 4.75 inches along the long side. 
  3. Decorate the paper. I stamped various hearts over the paper using hearts from the Darling Duos stamp set and the Wild About Zoo stamp set (the hearts in these two sets are the same size so they coordinate perfectly!). 
  4. Add the chocolate into the center, between the score lines. I adhered the chocolates together with glue dots and attached them to the bottom of the holder. 
  5. Fold it up into a triangle shape and punch a hole through both layers. Use twine or ribbon to tie it all up!

The chocolates I used were just a little over an inch wide so if you find some that are the same size, you could use the same measurements I did, otherwise you might need to adjust if your chocolates are larger. By the way, I found those adorable chocolates with the animal print labels at the dollar store. Don't they look perfect with our Wild About Zoo stamp set?
