Sending Love Chocolate Treats & Hidden Message

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Sending Love Chocolate Treats & Hidden Message

It’s official. I’ve made more Valentine’s projects this year than I have ever done before. As a Brit, I am used to only gifting a card and present to my husband, and it’s not common place here to gift to anyone else, however…. I am getting more into the idea of sending love notes and treats to my children. I’m not sure that it will be catch on over here for them to gift all their class mates, but who knows!

So these little treats are made half with my boys in mind, but also for my overseas friends who do send Valentine’s treats to more than just their significant other. See, I try to remember everyone within my crafting!

And heck, you could change the paper and the chocolate treat for any occasion. Perhaps you could get some other wrapped chocolates in pastel colours and have baby shower treats? Or actually, as I type this, I’m thinking these could make good wedding favours as they are. Love at a wedding is a given…!

Anyway, they’re so easy to make, you can get 8 from a sheet of cardstock and yes, they do stand on their own as well!

Happy Wednesday everyone, I’m sending love to you too!

  6. Funny you’re posting this on St. Dwynwen’s Day
    Here is some info about her.
    St. Dwynwen (5th c.) was a princess from Anglesey in Wales, the beautiful and virtuous daughter of King Brychan Brycheiniog. According to legend she fell in love with a young man, yet refused to marry him due to her piety and desire for the religious life. She prayed that her desire for marriage would be removed, and that God would give happiness to all lovers. Dwynwen became consecrated to God as a nun and set up a convent on Llanddwyn Island, and her church and its ‘holy well’ became a pilgrimage shrine from the Middle Ages down to today, especially for lovers. St. Dwynwen is the patron saint of lovers, and in Wales her feast is the equivalent of St. Valentine’s Day. Dwynwen translated means ‘she who leads a blessed life’, and her feast day is January 25.
