Good Morning Ladies,
A few of you ladies asked to see Karen's Chocolate Wrapper that she made for a Challenge over on Christine Emberson's blog . They are absolutely fantastic idea, transforming the chocolate bars boring Plastic/foil looking packaging. I prefer the type where you get the pleasure of sliding off the paper sleeve, excitement building as you work through the unsleeving, then you get to slowly and very carefully unfold the beautiful purple foil, taking care not to damage it (as you are a crafter and might be able to 'upcycle' it)!
You are then rewarded with the amazing cocoa, buttery rich aroma that teases your taste buds, before you actually pick up the silky smooth bar and perform a very pleasant 'snap' to free you perfect little column of four blocks of yumminess and pop it in your mouth. These days however you have to wrestle off the cheap, very unsatisfying plastic package!
Karen's Chocolate Bar cover allows you to relive some of the pleasure involved in unwrapping your chocolate! It is quite a simple idea but boy does it transform the plain packaging into a beautifully designed gift that you could give on any occasion, you could even give it as a Get well gift to someone in hospital, especially if your hospitals are like ours and don't allow flowers, this would give them something as beautiful to look at.
I will get Karen to write down the measurements etc, you could make it as next weeks Challenge, as it uses your card making stash to make something
Other than a card.
Karen has used various Spellbinder dies to create her fantastic wrapper, 'Filigree Vase' and a few flowers from the same collection. Such a stunning arrangement Karen. I love how you have used a die to create pretty pattern on the background of your wrapper.
Thank you so much Karen for sharing you gorgeous wrapper, i do have a question though!! Is the chocolate still in the wrapper???? Xxx
Sue and I had a very productive session today, i was busy finishing Josh's Wallet Card, while Sue was busy making a special card, we missed Pat though, very much xxx
Sending hugs to all of you, gentle ones for those feeling poorly xxx
Lots of love
