Dream Valley Challenges #12

I was on vacation for challenge #11 but I am back now.  The challenge for the next fortnight is "Suprise - a hidden flap, popup, etc."  This was a fun one.  Our sponsor is Digi's with Attitude and the prize is $10 Canadian.  They have some fun images.  I chose to use Disco Tween. 

I did not make a card but my project does have a surprise.  I made for my DD cause she's been doing a great job saving all her babysitting money this summer.

And the suprise:

I sent hubby to the store to get me a candy bar for this.  I told him I didn't care what kind as long as it was flat like a Hershey's bar.  It didn't occur to me that I need to clarify the size.  He brought home a king size candy bar.  Needless to say this is a pretty large project.

I started with a 7.5" square.  I probably should have made it 7.5"x8"  to allow just a little extra because the larger bar is thicker.  I scored it at 1", 1.25", 4.75" and 5".  I ended up being a bit short on sealing it so I add a narrow piece so there was more overlap to glue, hence the 7.5"x8".  I cut my mats to fit the front, colored my image and started assembly.  The glitter ribbon was from Michael's $1 bin.  It's not sealed so glitter comes off of it whenever you touch it.  This was a good way to use it up and DD could careless if she has glitter all over her.  The roses are from Recollections, purchased on clearence at Michaels.  The flower rhinestones are Kaiser.  Use a nice long piece of ribbon around the candy bar and push it into the sleeve.  Tie you bow and you have a something to pull it out with.  Works like a charm.

I'm sure DD will enjoy this.  Be sure to go over to Dream Valley Challenges and see all the other wonderful creations by the DT and then get to work making your own creation.  Can't wait to see what everyone creates.  I really love getting ideas from all of you!

Hi Carrie,
Love your candy bar wrapper!! You've done a great job with your DWA image, maybe I'll try one of the girls the next time they sponsor us at DVC.
