And if that is not enough fun…….we have something new to share

There is still some tweeking, some planning, and fun to button up ~ but just couldn’t wait to share!

Cottage Classic Giftables ~ has all the makings for coordinated gift giving using Creativity from the gift to the wrapping ~ we’re planning gatherings to create thru Zoom, blog posts full of ideas, patterns to use and gift guides to collect goods and coordinate the content to the wrappings.

There is so much more to come ~ so stay tuned into Classic Amy Joanne.

We couldn’t resist using ‘So Stinkin’ Cute’ Classic Chalk Art pattern as a gift topper idea for our first ‘Cottage Classic Giftable‘ ~ using this Guide ~ click (here) to print.

So Stinkin’ Cute‘ would make a sweet Valentine Gift – Giftable! ~ adding red glitter hearts to the gift topper and lining the inside of the box with matching red scrapbooking paper ~ coordinated fun!

then simply just tuck a sweet candy treat inside the box.

In Classic Style ~ this ‘black and white chocolate bark’ coordinated with the ‘So Stinkin’ Cute‘ gift topper design.

A first for the ‘Cottage Classic Giftables

Black and White Chocolate Bark


  • 2 Cups White Chocolate Chips
  • 1/3 Cup Cashew Butter
  • 1 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips


  • Add White Chocolate Chips and Cashew Butter to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute and stir until melted and smooth.
  • Add the Dark Chocolate Chips to a separate microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 40 seconds to 1 Minute and stir until melted and smooth.
  • Spread the melted White Chocolate Chips onto a lined (parchment paper) cookie sheet until even and smooth.
    Add spoonfuls of the melted Dark Chocolate Chips randomly over the White Chocolate Chips. Then 'run' a knife or skewer thru the Chocolates to create a fun pattern.
  • Place the Cookie Sheet into the refrigerator until the Bark is firm.
  • Break apart or cut the Bark, as desired.
  • Add the Bark to clear cello gift bags and tie up pretty with a RED bow.

Add red dyed straw for a personal touch too (how-to here).

We’re just getting started here at Classic Amy Joanne ~ stay tuned in for ‘Cottage Classic Giftables‘ and all it has to offer!
