Christmas Fudge

I CASEd this idea from Vicky Gould on Splitcoaststampers. She made one of these for the Ways to Use It Challenge this week. She said it had been around SCS for a couple of years, but, since I've only really participated on the site since last February, it was new to me! It's a cute idea. Here's the poem on the back:

Dashing through the malls
With groceries yet to buy.
Laundry, work and cleaning,
Life's so crazy! Why?

Bells on telephones ring,
The machine will take the call.
We have not time for anyone,
It drives us up the wall.

A day or two ago
We thought we'd make a treat,
For all our special friends,
A Christmas gift to eat.

Our intentions were top notch.
But our schedules would not budge.
So here's this years' edition
of homemade CHRISTMAS FUDGE!

Inside is a Hershey bar!!! A 6 X 6 piece of Dashing double sided designer paper covers each candy bar. I tied curly ribbon on the candy bar lengthwise so that it can be used as a pull string. Real Red card stock was punched with the scallop circle punch, the sentiment from "Short and Sweet" was stamped on Very Vanilla with Real Red ink and punched with the small oval punch; these pieces were glued together and adhered to the wrapper. The one inch circle punch was used at the top to show where to pull. I gave these to our four pastors at church today and to a good friend and neighbor. These are so easy but a lot of fun!!!
