Valentine’s Day Ghirardelli Candy Holder


I initially posted this Valentine’s Day treat idea in February last year.  It’s had so many hits on Pinterest this past month (over 50,000 impressions!) that I decided to re-post it so that you will have complete instructions on how to create these at home.  It’s the perfect little chocolate gift decorated Stampin’ Up! style!  The most important tool is the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

  • Begin with card stock that measures 2″ x 7-1/2″.  Score at 3-5/8″ and 3-7/8″, so either side of center to make the gusset.
  • Then punch both ends of your card stock with the Topper Punch.  Decorate as you wish, or follow my design.
  • I love the sweet hearts from the Adorning Accents embossing folder.
  • I grabbed an oldie but goodie stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment.
  • You’re going to LOVE embossing the Gold and Silver Foil Sheets!  Here I used the Fasionable Hearts Embosslits, but I’m thinking I’ll be doing this a lot in the future with the embossing folders.
  • Chocolates are tied up with Pink Pirouette Taffeta Ribbon and Gold Baker’s Twine.
  • Add a sweet little Vanilla Candy Dot to one of the hearts and you’re done!

Here’s a close-up of one of them:

And what’s inside?  Yum!  Just hold it in place with a bit of SNAIL.  Of course, my card stock just had to match the Ghirardelli dark chocolate and raspberry packaging!
