Today's Craft — Stocking Stuffers

We can agree, chocolate is pretty much universally loved, right? It's a perfect stocking stuffer for almost anyone on your list! Sure, you could just drop it in the stocking or give it a quick wrap, but if you can make a slider surprise candy wrapper stocking stuffer (➡️ Laura's tongue-twister of a name!), why wouldn't you? Laura is sharing her interactive idea stocking stuffer idea with us today — grab some chocolate because we're about to get crafty.

I love these!! I also love that wreath. Of course, I went looking for it and it’s sold out everywhere. Well, I will keep my eye out for this item. I love pretty much anything that Laura does. Love her cards and videos. I will also have to keep an eye out for Ritter Sport bars. Yum….
