my favourite choccies I think
I wanted to give some chocolates to a lady in the village and I had just the box to put them in - or so I thought! Turned out that it just wasn't quite the right dimensions. Still it didn't take long to whip up another one that would hold the chocolates without squashing them. I used SB Resplendent Rectangles for the lid and base. For the lid I die cut an SB Labels 20 and some SB foliage and dabbed some Tim Holtz DI Spun Sugar whilst the leaves were still in the dies. In my bit box I found a small piece of embossed card which was left over from something else so I coloured that with the same distress ink and added a WOC rose. So a very pretty box for quite a mundane gift and which took hardly any time to make.
My mum always bought me some Ferrero Rocher for Christmas and Easter and I really miss that. These chocolates always bring her to mind.
Enjoy the weekend and I hope you have a blessed and Holy Easter.
