Make Mother’s Day gift bags – with chocolate!

Make gift bags for Mother's Day - and add your favorite chocolate!My guess is you have a few chocoholics in your home. I would have no idea what you are talking about! Just kidding – I come from a long line of chocolate appreciators. My mom, my grandmother, and my great-grandmother all love it. It produces that physiological reaction in us that makes me feel that we can conquer the world. I know a lot of people love chocolate too, and especially a lot of mothers (who doesn’t need a handful of sugar after dealing with kids all day). And I have a lot of mother friends, so I decided to make these favor bags with my new Mod Podge Rocks stencils. They are perfect for Mother’s Day gifts, only cost a few pennies each, and you add some DOVE® Dark Chocolate to make them complete. Then you can hand them out to all of your mother friends! Here’s how they are made.

Gather These Supplies

IMG_3713Place the peel n’ stick stencil down on the favor bag and smooth. Use the spouncer to apply paint directly on top.

IMG_3714Peel up the stencil and see your beautiful pattern left behind – let dry. Wash the stencil immediately and return to the backer sheet.

IMG_3716Apply washi tape to the bottom and top of the pattern and trim (also please ignore the painted fingernails).

IMG_3717Insert your yummy DOVE® treats – you can even eat a few while you are sticking them in the bag. I might have done that (I’m not talking).

They would also make great party favors (wedding, perhaps?) or just office appreciation treat bags. There are a lot of options! For me? Mine are definitely going to some moms. If you are a mom, Happy Mother’s Day to you!
