Hi Friends, It is Feb 1st - means time for the Monthly ICR Challenge. This month we are celebrating the ICR 2nd Anniversary. So we have tons of acitvities, games, challenges and fun things planned for y'all. Would love for you to stop by and Celebrate with us.

Without further Ado - for the ICRC26 - Candy Holder with Love Up In the Air Theme - I created this Hershey's bar holder with a plane in clouds image and used the Sentiment "Love is Up In the Air". The Hershey's bar is held with a ribbon, so you can pull the bar out by pulling on the Ribbon. This is a very simple and easy Candy Holder to make.

Here is my Project,

1. Cut a Card Stock 7 x 5.5 inches (This is for the Big Hershey's bar that we get in USA). But you can adjust this to any Candy bar. Basically 7 inches is 1/2 inch more than the length of the candy bar and 5.5 inches is 1/2 inch more than the circumference of the candy bar.
2. Score the card stock on the 7 inch side at 2.5 and 5 inches. Fold the 1/2 inch, add some glue or sticky tape and close it. The bottom portion can also be closed the same way or crimped.
3) I made two slots on the open top portion using SU Slot Punch, but you can do the same with a regular hole punch as well.
4) Take about 15-16 inches long ribbon. Thread it through the two slots and then slide the chocolate bar inside the pocket while keep the ribbon at the bottom of the bar and then tie the top into a know. Now if you pull the ribbon, the bar will slide out with it.
5) Decorate the top of the pocket as you like.

There is a detailed tutorial on SplitCoastStampers as well.

I used some Crate Paper  Cardstock for my Candy Holder and I decorated the Top with PTI Flying By Stamp set (The best 5 dollar stamp set that I ever got). I colored the Airplane with Copics, I printed the sentiment from Computer (Used Lauren Script for the font) and added few PTI Cloud Die cuts (whose edges I inked with copics). Some hearts stamped on this completed the project.

This is fun to make as valentines for School Projects, Teachers and even friends. I hope you felt a bit inspired to go create your own and enter in the ICRC Challenge.
