Chocolate Covered Strawberries
I have been busy this weekend getting all the end of the year teacher gifts made. This supah cute gift set I made with the PaperTrey Green Thumb stampset - I LOVE THIS SET! It was just perfect for the chocolate covered strawberries that I am making to give as gifts. The container is the container the strawberries come in at the store - I just washed it out and then altered it to match the card. It will look so adorable once I get the chocolate strawberries in it!! I stamped the strawberries in Real Red ink and then stamped just the edge in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink - voila! I am also making cookies to give - those will go in cello bags with a ribbon and tag attached. Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!

Recipe
Stamps: Green Thumb by PaperTrey Ink, Polkadot background by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink: Real Red, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip Craft, Palette Ink Burnt Umber
Cardstock: Real Red, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Scalloped Circle Punch, Large Oval Punch, Brads, Ribbon, Dimensionals

What a clever idea! I love all of your creations, and this one is no exception. I just got this set, so I'll have to keep this idea in mind.

This is darling and perfect! I've thought so many times about saving one of those containers, but what would I do with it? I'd probably never get around to chocolate covered strawberries, but what a great idea! A fantastic gift! The best!

Wowzers! What a fabulous looking set!

Nice post... Looks like flash memory is really starting to take off. Hopefully we'll start seeing a drop in SSD prices soon. 5 dollar 32 gigabyte Micro SD Cards for your DS flash card... sounds good to me!
