Tasty Tuesday and Moxie Fab World Keen on Neon Challenge

Hey friends!  In my very first post I warned everyone that Paper Melody’s wouldn’t be strictly limited to paper crafts, and today is your first taste of that.  Joel’s been asking when I’m going to make one of his favorite Christmas treats and I finally got around to it today, so I thought I’d share with you!  But first, a paper craft 🙂

I created this project in response to the Keen on Neon Challenge in the Moxie Fab World (it doesn’t end until December 17th, so feel free to enter something yourself!).  Basically, the challenge was to make a holiday paper craft project using neon in an innovative way.  Now, I’m not usually a big fan of neon, but I immediately remembered a pad of paper I’ve had forever that is composed of mostly neon card stock, and inspiration struck!  Here’s what I came up with:

Gift Card Holder

It’s a gift card box! A perfect way to give a gift card in a unique package. Here’s the inside:

And a couple more pictures, just for the fun of it:

Let me know what you think, and be sure to enter your own creation before December 17th!

And now, the tasty part 🙂 This treat is super tasty and super easy.  All you need is:

  • A sleeve of Ritz crackers
  • peanut butter
  • white bark coating (I used 5 blocks and had a little left over)

First, make peanut butter Ritz sandwiches.  Each sleeve of crackers should make about 17 sandwiches.

Then, melt the bark coating.

Finally, dip the sandwiches in the bark and set them on wax paper to dry!  Easy as that, and here are your results:

To make them even more delectable, try using Nutella instead of peanut butter.  You could also dress them up by drizzling chocolate over top, dipping half in chocolate, or adding sprinkles. Go crazy! And enjoy 🙂
