Chocolate Survival Kit

This kit is made from a bead organizer found at Michael’s for $2. 😀

Making a Chocolate Survival Kit out of a bead box is such a cute and relatively inexpensive idea (consider the candy you buy).  I had a good time making this.  I got the idea from a lady named Jana Eubank.  It’s a super creative idea.

I love this ribbon from PaperTreyInk.com.  I also used Martha Stewart punches for the curly corners and the hearts on the sides of the pink paper.  The four intricate heart cuts are all from the Love Struck Seasonal Cricut cartridge and the lettering is from the Winter Woodland cartridge.  I used my Gypsy to weld the lettering.

Ok, between you and me…this photo is driving me CRAZY because that heart is off center. 😛  Well, here’s why: 1st-I just had to put it over that big heart that is printed on the paper.  Had to. 2nd-I’m going to put a little note to the right of the heart for the recipients.   I hope they like this!  For sure though, the candy will be a hit.

I put 3 mini candy bars in each small space and about 6 of the Twix in the longer area on the left.

The paper is all K & Co. Smitten Specialty Paper, except for the pink and green paper under the 2 hearts.  IDK, what that is.  I bought it from someone on Etsy last summer and it was just a pack of different paper that the seller had cut down to smaller pieces.

This is a great project and you don’t need a Cricut or anything special to make it.  You just need some simple decoration and some candy + $2 for the bead box and you’re all ready to craft!

Happy Crafting!!

  3. I am not sure the chocolate would make it to the kit. I am a chocoholic. Though this is a great inexpensive way to give chocolate to your best friends, Could even make up care packages like this at Christmas to give for those people that you don’t normally buy for……..a coffee lover’s gift……with the individual packages of flavored coffees….Ok you got my brain working over time again.
