Chocolate Bar Wrapper



I been wanting to make one of these for ages and I finally managed to find the time to make one for a friend. I'd bought the chocolate bar in this weeks shop, and its a big bar but I forgot to take a piccie of it, but you can see it poking out of the wrapper. I used a 12 x 12 piece of BG "Blush". Used my Scor It to make the fold lines, no template, just made it up as I went along. I used an SU Punch to make an inverted semi circle at the top and folded the papers on the inside as well so it didn't show the white. The image again is Pollycraft, coloured with Copics, flowers are my new Prima and the ones on the bottom left corner are handmade by myself using 2 woodcare punches and Liquid Pearls. This piece meets 3 challenges, Basic Grey - Mix It Up & Colour Create which is Peach and Aqua with the option of adding handmade flowers which I've done and Stamp Something which is Chocolate Creations. The ribbon is DCWV and added Liquid Pearls and the rub on is Basic Grey. I loved making this, will be a great gift as mine is, so keep a spare chocolate bar handy in the fridge and if you ever forget someones birthday, this would make a lovely gift, male or female!

Gorgeous wrapper Claire. Love that beautifully coloured image.
Great use of the colours. At least the choccy bar got into the wrapper - mine usually gets eaten along the way (lol)
Thanks for joining us at both Basic Grey and Colour Create.

Fabulous wrapper, lovely idea for a gift. Not sure the bar of chocolate would last if I made one, I would have to keep making the wrapper smaller!
