Chocolate Gold Kisses

lad_chocolategoldkisses_tbu

I am sorry for my recent absence from my blog. I got a rather bad case of bronchitis/sinusitis/yucks, and then work went a bit nuts on me. So I was so drained I didn’t do any stamping! I’m back now, though – a bit rusty but I’m working on it ๐Ÿ™‚

Would you believe it if I told you I’d never altered a Starbucks bottle? Well, I haven’t! I whipped up this super simple on as a “thanks, I think you are great ” gift for my boss. He got me a terrific birthday present (fab electric kettle) so a simple cad just wouldn’t do! As usual, it was hard fo for me to go masculine…but he seemed to like it, lol.

I am obsessed with the Kraft/brown combo – I think I would use it on every card if I could. And thank goodness it was perfect for this bottle! To adhere the Kraft cardstock, I used a can (well, not actually the whole can!)ย of spray adhesive. I left the lid alone, other than punching a circle out and stamping the leaf from this set on it (and adding dots to it around the edges).

I filled it with Hershey’s Kisses with Almonds, and there it was – a gift for a guy!

Stamps: LAD In the Treetop
Paper: Kraft
