In my office we hold a monthly food day to celebrate those with a birthday that month. One of our staff is turning 40 so as a little gag, we brought little bags of 40 "something". We had bags of 40 almonds, 40 pieces of yarn, 40 leaves and various other items. It wasn't intended to be anything fancy or costly, just imaginative.

This staffer happens to be on Weight Watchers and she has given me charge over her bag of dark chocolate Dove candy. I dole out 1 piece a day. Yep, call me the Dove Nazi, lol. The best part is I can help myself when ever I want. For a biggie birthday like 40 it seemed only appropriate to gift her 40 Dove chocolates!

They didn't fit nicely in a Ziploc so I packed them in a medium sized kraft lunch sack. The crafter in me couldn't leave it at that. I gussied up a clothes pin and added a tag. I took the negative created by the flower die and used it as a stencil on the tag. The sentiment was a no brainer, lol.

Easy Peasy lemon squeezie!

Curiously, she has not brought back the bag to be rationed ;) I guess I'll let it go this time.

What a clever idea! ( and I don't blame her for keeping the chocolate! )
