Sweet Friendship - Kindred Stamps Building Blocks Candy Wrapper

June 06, 2019 1 Comment

Building Blocks is a super fun 4" x 6" stamp set from Kindred Stamps.  It brings back wonderful childhood memories.  I thought, let's pair it with a bar of chocolate and make it super sweet!



I stamped out one boy and one girl figurine and faces from the Building Blocks stamp set onto white card stock.  I colored them with watercolor brush pens.  This chart will help guide you though the color choices and layers used to create a bit of dimension.  Once they are colored, fussy cut the figures out.



The wrapper is created from a 5 1/2" x 5 3/4"  piece of red cardstock   The candy bar is 5 1/2" wide so you will score up and down the 5 3/4" side at 1",  1 1/4",   3 1/2",  3 3/4".  This will fold around the candy bar.  Create the circles  by  cutting eight circles using a 1" circle die or a punch from a 5 1/2"  x 2 1/2" piece of red card stock.



Using Festive Berries Distressed Oxide ink with a  dauber, daub along half the edge of each circle as shown.  The ink shows up slightly lighter than the cardstock



Choose a  red ink that is slightly darker than the red cardstock, daub 1/2 the circle along the opposite side of Festive Berries Ink as shown.  It shows up slightly darker than the cardstock.  This helps created the illusion of dimension.



Next I layout 2 rows of the 4 circles on the top of the scored wrapper evenly.  Make sure the circles are line up with the highlighted area facing the same direction as shown.  Once it was set in place I removed each circle adding a foam square and adhering it back into its place on the wrapper.



Turn the cardstock over and add a piece of double-sided tape to the inside as shown.  Then wrap it around the chocolate bar, adhering one edge of the cardstock to the other. 



Out of a piece of  3 1/2" x 7/16" yellow cardstock, stamp the sentiment "Friendships are the building blocks of life".  Cut the sentiment in between the words "Friendships" and "are".  Also stamp out the Building Block heart, color it with red markers, and fussy cut it out.  Glue the heart into the boy figure's hand and the word friendship in the other hand as shown.  Next adhere the figure to front left of the wrapper on the top of the circles as seen here.



Take the girl figure and glue the remaining sentiment banner in her hands then glue her to the front right of the wrapper on the top of the circles as seen here.



What fun you will have giving these to friends and they will enjoy receiving a sweet treat from you!
