Great idea, very cute! As for making it more durable, although im not totally sure because I don't usually work with shiny plastic or foam, but either covering the whole thing with ModPodge or regular craft resin might do the trick. (I'd try it out on a test bookmark first, though!)

Project Vox -  What will you say?

I, Shout, along with fellow artist, Howl, make 5x4" cardstock booklets with our artwork on them, and leave them in random places for people to find.  The goal: to inspire and provoke thought

Have you seen any of our cards?

Thanks for the comments and suggetions, guys. Geez, I've been gone from Craftster for such a long time. Grad school and teaching school will do that to ya *sighs* Anyway, to respond to some peeps:

Oh really? Please share your wonderfulness with the rest of the class, Fudgegirl!

I've made a couple of those ( i'll post pics later) but they werent as good as yours. I used 2mm foamand i'ts holding up pretty well... and thats saying something, coz i'm a bookworm, and i dont usually tke too much care of my bookmarks  Roll Eyes !

I'm not sure what you're getting at here. Scrapbookng paper with chocolate? I'm intrigued. Can you please explain further? Thanks.
just thinking - do they make a scrapbooking paper with chocolate? That inside the wrapper would be thin enough that you can laminate it...
selkie

Thank you for the info, libby. I was wondering if I was going crazy. The fact that I acually care about foil proves that I am. lol
that is better than wonderful!!!

lucky friend.

just a comment about the "mystery of the missing aluminum foil"... i was looking to make personalized hershey bars as my wedding favor, and found that they no longer wrap them in the foil and then the brown paper. it said something about being better protected against tampering. which doesn't sound bad, but the LARGE bars that are more than one serving size are still sold in the old wrapping. go figure.

back to your work... very very cute. hope your friend likes it

As for those of you who suggested Mod Podge and the like, how would it react to the slippery plastic coating on the wrapper? Perhaps I should just try for myself. What's the worst that can happen, poke in the eye? Lung damage? Eh, I've done worse.

{Wow, I really have to go to bed now}

I will be out of state until February. I may be able to check emails periodically so if you need me, it would be more timely to email me. Thanks. ANY OWED SWAP PACKAGES WILL GO OUT BEFORE I LEAVE.

explain? sure Grin
what i meant was that i did exactly the same thing, except i used foam that was 2mm thick (sorry, i dont know that that would be in inches or anything), and even though that is pretty thin, it holds up pretty well too. I just posted that coz you were talking about which thickness of foam is best.
so here you go, these are some of my attempts

'scuse the dodgy-ness of that photo.... they look better in real life, i swear! Tongue
I made some other ones that were better... these ones are sort of half finished. The ones i did before had bite marks and other interesting stuff too.
