Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop - Let's Hear It for the Boys!

Hi Crafters and welcome to another Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. This months theme is Let's Hear it for the Boys. 

As I was thinking about this project I immediately went to my newest masculine suite - He's the Man. I am sure I wont be the only one using this new suite! 

I only had the DSP to play with but luckily this comes with 2 pages of pre cut images providing heaps of ideas. 

So my card is a selection of the DSP with no ink!  I finished it off with twine and some metallic gems.

Seeing as this project was super quick and easy I decided to make a little chocolate treat pouch to go with it. This pocket design is one I use a fair bit - I think it originally came from Connie Stewart. 

It is super easy to make as it uses a clear envelope for the wrapper. The cardstock and chocolates slip perfectly inside and the topper finishes it off perfectly. It holds 3 fun size chocolates perfectly. 

Here is a larger image of the DSP - see all the pre cut images on the left hand side.
