The Kit Kat Machine!

These are some of the goodies that guests received at my New Catalogue Launch Night. They got an A4 wallet, handstamped using the "Scatter Sunshine" Jumbo wheel. This held their new catalogue, bonus coupons, flyers, etc and what Jacob likes to call my "Kit Kat machine".
I've taken a close-up pic of it closed and open. I've basically stamped a sheet of Cool Caribbean cardstock with the Scatter Sunshine wheel, and cut a piece big enough to wrap around the Kit Kat (I scored it first to make it easier). Then I've stapled a punched out semi-circle to one end and written the word "pull" and an arrow in Tempting Turquoise marker. They were really easy, and a big hit!
Here's how to make your own (1 A4 sheet makes 6):
1. Decorate your A4 sheet as desired (wheeling is super-quick!)
2. Trim your cardstock into 6 pieces each measuring 10.5 x 9.1cm (cut in half length-ways and then at 9.1cm intervals. You will have a small piece left over)
3. Now you need to score each of your 6 pieces. Hold it so that the 9.1cm side is towards you, and score at 2.8, 3.8, 7.3 and 8.3cm
4. Fold along all your score lines
5. Apply Sticky strip to the smallest scored edge
6. Wrap around Kit Kat and stick down edge.
7. Punch a 1 ¼” circle from co-ordinating cardstock, and trim one end to a straight edge. Staple to Kit Kat and write the word “Pull”.

  1. Hi Marelle, it's Melissa. This is my first time to your site and I am very glad I visited. I love your launch night folders and Kit Kat pouches and I am big fan of all your work. As you know one of your cards inspired me to try one of the Elite challenges. I'm definitely adding your site to my favourites. PS. Thanks for your supportive comments too.
