The first time I hosted a chocolate party I think I had more fun setting it up and coming up with ideas about what to do. I am not a party professional, just a chocolate enthusiast. So with my sub-par craft skills and chocolate eccentricities I created a chocolate bar invitation. Word to the wise, however, do not eat.
*this tutorial is written for one invitation, multiply as necessary
1- Obtain desired wooden shape for chocolate bar invites. I chose something flat so it would still fit in an envelope.
2- Sand and paint wooden piece desired color of brown. Let dry.
3- Create invitation piece for chocolate bar. I did this using adobe illustrator and size it slightly smaller than the piece of wood. Then had the invitations printed as photos and cut them to the appropriate size.
4- Using modge podge, affix the invitation to the painted wood. I also did a coat of modge podge over the entire bar. Let dry.
5- Create the wrapper of the bar. I did this using adobe illustrator. The size of the chocolate bar was about 2 inches by 5 inches. So I created a wrapper size that was 5 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches.
6- Wrap the wrapper you have created around the bar, fasten as desired. I used a piece of twine.
You are finished! Now if you need a chocolate party to go to, I have one!
