Red, White, and Blue Thank You

Still working on those thank-you gifts and cards. I needed one more small giftie for my kids' gymnastics coaches. All three coaches are teenage boys, so I figured what better way to say thank you for their hard work this year than with chocolate bars? I've already put aside these two bars for them, and added this one to the collection today:
I used the Flourishes Tag Lines set to stamp the sentiment for the little red, white, and blue tag. After wrapping a milk chocolate caramel bar with some patriotic patterned paper, I tied on my tag with red and white baker's twine. Done!! A quick and easy gift. :)

I'm playing along with the June Flourishes Release Week Challenge, the Star-Spangled Challenge, which is to let your patriotism shine and use red, white, and blue if you hail from the United States {check!}.

Thanks for dropping by!
Emily

Emily, surely there is not a teen-age boy alive who doesn't like chocolate....and caramel(my favorite. Love how you used this for your red, white, and blue challenge. We are side by side over at this Flourishes challenge...boldly showing our patriotism.

You jumped in & changed your picture! Looks gorgeous :)
What a great idea for a thank-you - I mean, teenage boys pretty much only eat and sleep, right?

Oh, perfect! It's got that cool masculine look, and they've got to love the chocolate! The Star Spangled Challenge worked out great for this project!

I think professionally wrapped candy makes it taste even better! This is perfect packaging, Emily!
