The humans left me to go celebrate the reason for the season at a huge potluck yesterday afternoon. While Ann was cooking the Chicken & Dumplings to share, I broke out the Big Shot so she could bring a little extra something for her table mates. It's a good thing that she listened while I barked my instructions because there wasn't much time.
First, you but a half sheet of Always Artichoke cardstock (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") & your Big Shot Bitty Box XL Die #115967. (bark that 3 times fast!)
I suggested that she cut the squares these sizes so that she could get 4 of them from a width of paper or cardstock:
– Cherry Cobbler – 2-1/8" square
– Deck the Halls Designer Paper – 2" square
The Always Artichoke Seam Binding #121000 is only wrapped around the lid for easy access.
Cut your paper 1" wide to wrap around the 3 Hershey's Treasures that will fit inside. We cut it 3" long. If it's hard for you to wrap it tightly, you might want to cut yours 3-1/8" or 3-1/4" long. She followed my barks to the letter – even down to using Sticky Strip to hold the paper around the candy so that it would hold better.
We only gave out the Milk Chocolate because not everyone likes Dark Chocolate like my humans do. NO CHOCOLATE FOR DOGS! Makes us sick – or worse! You don't want to know.
This might even be a nice little surprise gift for someone special that helps you throughout the year. There's room for some quiet money in the bottom. I'm sure of it. I'm thinking the intruder in the red suit I'm expecting this weekend might like it. What do you think?

it's a great time to be the blog dog of a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Let us talk to Santa on your behalf so you can get your own Big Shot!
