Gift sleeve for chocie:)

A simple gift sleeve for hiding a friends favourite treat, complete with ribbon pull access.  This simple lesson came from a friend, Debbie L, thank you:)  The sleeve is made with the circumferance of your chocolate bar plus about 10mm to allow it to slide.  The bottom is closed with red tape and  sealed and decorated by crimping (or in my case scoring - I did this by alternating sides every 1/8 inch for about 5 or 6 score lines.  Similar effect is achieved.  Decorate around with pattern papers and bling of your choice, I punched this pretty lace edge on some of my pattern paper to soften the edge.  Punch oblong slit (Stampin up punch) to insert ribbon, run through to other side.  Insert choc and then tie off ribbon after dropping carefully into sleeve.

My posts are going to be out of order for a while as I am struggling to upload some photo's.  Thanks for looking!
