The project I'm sharing with you today is my favorite one that I created using Melanie's set "The Best Things in Life" I mean really.....what's better than chocolate? I created this candy bar wrapper using some yummy Basic Grey papers, a couple of punches, ribbons, buttons, hemp thread, and of course.....a Hershey's chocolate bar!!!! Enjoy the rest of the hop!!!!

Happy Stamping,
