A girlfriend of mine hates April. All sorts of bad things in her life have happened in April. A few days ago, we went for a walk, and in the half-hour before the walk she found out an old friend and mentor had passed away and that her own mother had spent the day undergoing medical tests...par for the course for her as far as April is concerned. So, I made her a gift to help make April a little easier to get through.
Inside the bag are wrapped Hershey's Nuggets (one for every day left in the month). Inside the card, I told her to take one chocolate a day until they are gone, and then April will be over. I don't imagine the chocolates will keep more bad things from happening, but at least she gets a little chocolate every day to help her through.
Details: The card is smallish, only 3 1/2" x 4 7/8", so you can see that the bag is also small. The stamp is one I got on sale at Michael's, and I stamped it in brown Memento and colored it with a pink Memento marker. The flower on the bon bon is accented with a tiny rhinestone. I wrapped the chocolates in stamped Avery address labels using Papertrey Ink's Limitless Labels set and pink and brown ink by Memento. The chocolates are loosely wrapped in tissue paper and placed in the bag. A simple hot pink bow is all I added to the bag, and I love how sweet it looks!
This was such a quick and easy project, one you could whip out at a moment's notice for a friend in need of a bit of cheer.
