Chocolate Box


Good afternoon all. I know I've once again been M.I.A., but I will not bore
you with the details of why.

My offering today is something I have not created before...I'm not sure what
is the correct name, so I will just call it a Chocolate Box. 
I saw some examples on Pinterest, but none contained a brand of chocolate
that I wanted to use, so I experimented with scraps of cardstock til I had the
correct dimensions. Once I had 'mastered' the technique, it was quite 
quick to produce, so I made several using various patterned papers.

Inside the box showing the large 'pocket' for the chocolate, 
and the smaller 'pocket' for the gift tag, on which I will write
our personal Christmas greeting.

A closer look at my festive floral arrangement. The other boxes
I made use more traditional Christmas colours, but I did enjoy 
creating this one using the blue, pink and silver combination.
