Chocolate box


Hmmm - did I fool you into thinking that this was it!
I found this box of gorgeous chocs - yes they are, well I had to test them! *giggle*
The packet contained 2 sections ......


which I made into a Xmas box of special chocs......


Firstly I made the box & lid............
so that it was a snug fit so that the choc's didn't rattle around


Then I decorated the box lid...........
I used die cut snowflakes & tree which were enhanced with stickles & my Sizzix   
embossing folder snowman, again enhanced with stickles.


The sentiment was stamped, cut out & mounted with sticky fixers, as was the snowman.
I finished with the cheerful red spotted ribbon - in keeping with the Spots & Stripes theme.


I'd like to enter this for the Allsorts challenge blog challenge, which this week is Spots & Stripes.


and the Dotties World Anything goes Xmas challenge


and Top Tip Tuesday Anything goes challenge

Fab. :-) Totally love it :-) Very silly question, Tis deceiving, is the box you made the exact same size as the original box? Have you used the last remaining layer of the chocs. I am wanting to package up some chocs myself but wasn't sure how to go about, they don't have 'sections' may have to make some of my own sections, maybe using slots? so they don't rattle around.
Youv'e inspired me to get my thinking cap on instead of doing 'nothing'

There were 2 trays in each box Carole so you can make 2 boxes from the one packet (if you don't do what I did & test the other lot = just to make sure that they were ok you understand! :-) )

Yay Rachel :-) I have found the chocs. Hunted high and low at lots of different stores but without success - that was until yesterday - they have them in at the pound shop. Will let you know how I get on with the creating.
