*** Celebrations ***

Happy Thursday Peeps, we've got a new challenge starting for you over on the Cute Card Thursday Blog today.  This week our theme is 'Celebrations' - of which there are certainly plenty at this time of year for most of us !  Our prize this week is sponsored by Whimsy Stamps.

Here's my DT project

In my book, celebrations just aren't complete without the addition of chocolate !  "My name is Wynneth and I am a Chocaholic"  ha ha !   So, today's project is pretty packaging for choccie bars.

Using some magazine freebie papers, I created a wrap the right size to cover the bars, then added a length of lush festive ribbon around the wrap to close off the open ends and stop the bars sliding out.

I created a poinsettia flower embellishment using the set of Spellbinders Poinsettia dies and red cardstock.  After diecutting each layer I used a ball tool to add dimension and make the petals stand up, then I layered them up.  The final touch was a gold centre made using a Waco Pearlmaker Pen.   I then attached the flower to the centre of the ribbon.

As a final touch, I created a tag by using an image from a Penny Black set of stamps, stamped in SU! Raspberry Ripple ink and fussy cut out.  I attached the tag just under the flower and, as I know what's inside the package, the sentiment was perfect !

Hope you've enjoyed your visit and like this method of turning a very 'ordinary' bar of chocolate into a super pretty little gift.

Enjoy your day, whatever you have planned.
