Well not only have mine multiplied but I have had lots of emails asking me for the directions for this years’ Easter treats … so here they are for those of you that have already gone out and bought your chocolate bars!  No pressure!!!
All of these wishes were from Europe – so I have left the tutorial as metric – as that suits the bar I used….
Oh and I have to add…. I loved the nickname given by Karen… the Pull Bar with the Travelling Tag… I think that sums up the extra element of this project perfectly!
And for those of you that needed to know…. The size of my Chocolate Bar is 100g in weight and 5cm wide x 18,5cm long x almost 1cm deep

Tag: 5.1 x 18cm
DSP (Paper): 7,5 x 15,6cm

Ribbon: 46cm (18”)
Twine: 22cm (9”)
Punches – Ornate Tag Topper Punch, 1/4” Handheld Circle

Stamps – For Peeps Sake, Happy Easter Bunny ( see what I have done to my stamp at the end!!!)

17. Place chocolate bar inside the box with the ribbon underneath it

18. Holding onto the front end of the ribbon - push chocolate bar into the box allowing the ribbon to slide under it and ending up with the 2 ribbon ends the same length ( you may find you need to adjust ribbon to size to achieve this!)

19. Knot ribbon and make a twine bow around the knot

20. Now when you pull on the bow, the chocolate bar and the Tag move up the box to surprise the recipient!

Now I know a few of you will be saying…where is that Happy Easter Bunny in the Spring Summer Catalogue….
I was guilty too…I just didn’t spot it until I saw it used by another demo – and then I fell in love!!
So here is the image…
Happy Easter Bunny Wood Stamp by Stampin' Up!
And here is (actually are) my stamps….

I just cut out the Bunny before I mounted the stamp… the Bunny being mounted on a spare wooden block I had lying around… eh voila! – Easy Bunny stamping…. I wouldn’t have him any other way!!
Right – off to nurse my aching back – my new “heat rub” definitely needed now …..
