In Case Of Emergency Break Glass

Awhile back I found the best little gag gift on Pinterest. 

Of course I had to copy this idea!

Seriously, who doesn't have that emergency chocolate stash?

Wanna see how I did it? 

picture frame (I used 5x7)
chocolate bar
vinyl or printer
glue dots or tape
spray paint (optional)

The first step I started with is completely optional. I spray painted my picture frames black so that they were uniform. If you have a frame that you are happy with just how you got it, you can skip this step and move on to the next. 

Next step was to install the chocolate bars into the frames. All I did for this one is use glue dots to secure the chocolate bar to the piece of paper I was using as a back piece.

press the chocolate bar down firmly to paper

Once I had the chocolate bar and paper in place, I put the back of the frame back on and slid the holding tabs back in place. The back piece is going to bulge a bit because of the chocolate bar being wedged in there, but if you press the back piece down, than press the holding tab down, it will stay put.

After the chocolate bar is in your frame, it's time to add the letters. I chose to use vinyl to add the letters to the front of the glass, but if you're not able to use vinyl, you could always print the letters out onto your paper that you mount the chocolate bar onto, or using letter stickers. 

Once you have your letters in place you're done! 

I think these are the perfect little funny gift for a few Moms that I know. 

So do you have an emergency chocolate stash?
