Warning: This card is a little risque....but as you can see, she wasn't born yesterday!
What a Birthday!
A friend of mine just turned 50! Glad I am not her. (chuckle chuckle) I know, my time will come. Anyways, I made her a chocolate bar card using mostly items from the Dollar Store.
Many chocolate bars (some for eating and some for the card)
2 pieces of the thick white corrugated board
single hole punch
fancy scrapbook paper
hot glue and gun
The hardest part of the card is trying to make it somewhat personal for your friend. You'll want to plan what you will say and the chocolate bars you will use. When you have this all figured out, head to the dollar store and buy your bars. Or you can buy your bars first, like I did, and eat all the un-used. This is the best way. Every country has different chocolate bars. I am Canadian so these bars are from Canada.
Print all your sentences out. I used the return button every time a chocolate bar was inserted. This gave me separate phrases that could be glued on before the chocolate bar for that sentence. It kept it looking fairly neat. My font was bold and set at 22. I cut all the words and did a dry run with the candy for the best spacing.
I used a glue stick for the paper and a glue gun for the candy. A low melt glue gun would work best, but I don't have one so if you are in my boat, be careful as it will melt the wrappers.
The two boards were joined by hole punching down the left side of each board every two inches, and running a ribbon through the holes for the binding. The front was decorated using my Cricut, scrapbooking paper, and a few embellishments. If you don't have one of these machines, just use your imagination. There are so many things you can use on the front of the card.
