Say it with…Chocolate!

Posted by on March 9, 2012 in Annabelle Stamps | 14 comments

So…who is up for a chocolate challenge? Interpret it anyone you like – either using the colours of chocolate, or like I did…using chocolates you can eat!

(tag – ac066)

I made a little folder/box to hold a yummy love heart chocolate. There is nothing better than saying thank you with some chocolate, in my opinion. I white heat embossed some stamps from the Love Birds set. Oh and I got all inky with distress inks as well.

I didn’t know how to close it – I tried ribbon and twine, but they all covered up the sentiment so in the end I went with a clear band made from a cello bag. Not sure I like it, but it was the best I could come up with.

And I hear you say…where is the chocolate?? Well here it is…but probably not for long!
