Sweet Sixteen

Last week I was asked by a co-worker to make a Sweet Sixteen birthday gift for her daughter.  She wasn't sure what she wanted, but thought maybe the birthday girl would like her favorite candy bar to be involved.  I suggested she write out 16 reasons why she loved her daughter, and I would make cards and wraps for the candy bars.  It was agreed to go that route, and this is what I made, but first let me apologize for the picture.  I have no idea why it looks like the camera has a fish eye lens...it is my regular point and shoot camera!




I made wrappers for the candy bars - KitKats - then made small 3"x 3" cards that were adhered to the outside of each candy bar.  I made them all different using lots of the More Amour Designer Series Paper and many stamps and embellishments.

I am anxious to hear what she thought of the gift.  The mother had family members friends write the messages, so it should have made for a great birthday gift!  Keep this in mind for any special occasion in your family.  Everyone likes to hear that they are loved!
