We had the instructions on how to make this at the workshop, but I didn't have time to do it on the day. But finally, this week, I've been able to make it. Take a look:
Yes, something that's even closer to my heart than crafting - chocolate!
Here's a close up of the case:
I've made the case out of Chocolate Chip cardstock, which I ran through the Bigshot in a swirly embossing folder. I scored and folded it to fit the bar of chocolate inside.
I cut the tag by hand, and ran the top part through the Bigshot with a scalloped die at the top. I ran it through half way, then wound it back again, so it made the scalloped top of the die. I was very excited by this, I can tell you!
I stamped the lovely image in Chocolate Chip from the Simply Soft stamp set and coloured it in pink.
Then I punched a hole through the tag and front and back of the holder, and threaded a long piece of Chocolate Chip ribbon through all the holes. Next I slid the bar of chocolate into the hole at the top, so it pushes the ribbon down until the chocolate bar is completely inside. I tied a knot in the top of the ribbon and cut off the excess.
Then you can pull the ribbon and up pops the chocolate. It's brilliant! The thing is, now I should give this to someone as a gift.
In fact, that's such a good idea, that's exactly what I'm going to do. If you live in the UK, I'll post this to you if:
you are a follower of my blog
you leave a comment telling me you'd like to be included in the draw at the end of this post.
I'll draw a winner out of a hat on Saturday evening.
Thanks for looking in today. Happy crafting!
