"Ten Rules of Chocolate" Book

My inspiration came from Charlene who made a "Chocolate Book". But who am I to leave well enough alone, LOL! Of course I had to take the general idea and run with it.....
Here's how my thought process begins - with scribbles, notes, measurements, etc.

I've gotten these chocolate "tips" in emails many times before so it was high time I use them in a project like Charlene did! I love it!

Supplies I used:
(All items from The Angel Company, except the brads)
Penelope Soar With It Collection
Penelope Cardstock
Penelope Ribbon
Seeds of Blessings stamp set
Scor-Pal
Versamagic Eggplant ink
1/2" circle punch

Recollections brads
Computer generated title, rules, and back tag.

Directions:

Cut cardstock to 4" x 9 1/2". With the long side across the top of your Scor-pal, score at 6 1/2" and 6 3/4". (Scor-pal tip: to score at 6 3/4", place the 6 1/2" score mark on the 4" Scor-pal line and score at 4 1/4".)

Now turn the cardstock so the short side is across the top of the Scor-pal. Place the left side of the cardstock on the 3 1/2" Scor-pal line, score at 4" and 4 1/4" from top to bottom. Turn cardstock around and repeat on the other edge.

Now cut the sections out marked by red in the diagram above.


Fold on all of the score lines. It should look like the picture above.


Glue the flaps around to the back to create a "pouch" for the candy bar. This piece will be glued on the right side of the cover which is described next:

Cut cardstock to 6 3/8" x 7". With the 6 3/8" side across the top, score at 3" from each side.

Decorate the rest of your "book" as desired. Here are some more pictures of mine:

I designed the "pouch" to be just the right height so that when you place your Hershey bar down in it, the letters HERS show at the top. Because this chocolate is HERS! heehee, pretty cute huh?!
