S'Mores at theBon Fire

So, I never did show you the finished project from this marshmallow fluff post, did I? Here they are - little S'Mores packages for a fun invitation for a Friday night at the bon fire. We have lived in Minnesota for less than a year, but have come to appreciate many things here - one of them is the relaxing fun to be had sitting around a bonfire late into the night - lots of laughter and chit chat. There are enough jumbo marshmallows and Fudge Stripe Graham cookies to make six yummy S'mores - the perfect snack food.

To make this oh-so-easy invitation, I created a simple box from a 7 3/4" square of Summer Sun cardstock, scored, cut and adhered. The dividers are made from the Summer Sun as well and then the lid is a 7 3/4" piece of Medium Window Sheet, cut and scored, then adhered with Mini Glue Dots at the corners.

I added strips of Bella Bird DSP to each of the four sides. Another piece of the same pattern is used to make the tag, with a coordinating strip across the bottom. The S'mores circle is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals onto a Large Oval Punch of Chocolate Chip cardstock.

Stamps: Under the Stars, Hugs & Wishes
Cardstock: Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip, Confetti White, Bella Birds Designer Series Paper
Ink: Black StazOn, Chocolate Chip, Assorted Markers
Accessories: Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain, Chocolate Chip Taffeta, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Tag Corner Punch, Large Oval Punch, CropADile, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals

Don't forget that the Bella Birds Designer Series Paper is retiring in just a few days, as well as the Hugs & Wishes stamp set (you're invited sentiment.)

Mmmmm....Grown up S'more. After all we wouldn't want to waste all this chocolatey goodness and creativity on a bunch of kids right???

Thanks for sharing this elegant version of a time honored treat.

Hugs and blessings - Jean

Mary, this is such a cute little package and makes a neat little gift or invite. I was checking out Shelli's blog to see who else had joined this months challenge besides me. Glad I found your blog.
