Fancy Chocolate Holder





First off... Let me apologize for the quality of the photos.  I was too busy out enjoying our weather, 79 degrees thank you very much lol, that I didn't make it home on time to have nice sun-lit pictures. They'll be replaced tomorrow. EDITED to add newly taken pictures.

So yes, Happy Sunday!!! I'm excited that tomorrow is a holiday as I'm still trying to fight off my cold. I'm hoping that some rest and a good dose of sun from tomorrow will finally be the end of this cold. Fingers crossed. 

I have another fancy chocolate holder for you. I made one last year for Halloween and my friend loved it sooo much I thought I would make her another one. Although after seeing how this one turned out I'm debating on wether to keep it or not. You know when you make something that you're really proud off and you want to make it one of your to keep pieces. I don't have many of those, I think I have about 2 that I cant seem to part with so if I do keep this one, well then that make #3. I guess that's not bad considering if we keep everything we make then it'll be never ending. Lol.

Ok so for this one, I changed it up slightly. I changed the layout of my attachment, changed out the chocolate (used a special one I got from San Francisco) added flowers, embellishments and I also added dp to the back. Plus I used some extremely awesome kraft paper that sadly I only have 2 sheets of. It's a no name brand I picked up a while back and I still can't find paper that is equally sturdy and nice looking. 

Side Note** If you ever plan on making one of these, make sure you use extremely sturdy card stock and reinforce it from all sides. Oh and you must use great sticky tape, be it red tape or score tape or something equally good.

OK Ladies enjoy the rest of your Sunday. As for me, I'm off to LAX but I'll be back tomorrow with a new Graphicat project and to play blog catch up.
