Chocolate, chocolate everywhere - but not a bite to eat...

I came up with the idea of turning the chocolate bars from 'Sweet Shop' lite cartridge into cards. I thought that they would be good to keep on hand for unexpected birthdays or other occasions, with a sentiment such as "Enjoy your birthday down to the last bite!"

The first 'bar' is very simple using some paper from my stash.  (I guess I really need to start taking note of the names of the papers I buy.)

I decided to embellish this bar with a couple of butterflies using the Martha Stewart punch and some Core'dinations cardstock (I guess I do remember some of the names.)

And this one is quite unashamedly my favourite.  As a child Roald Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' was one of my favourite books.  I can just imagine giving this to someone with a bookstore gift card inside.

All candy bars are cut at 5" (each welded to another same sized candy bar using the Gypsy,) the butterflies from the Martha Stewart punch, the golden ticket is from Summer Vacation seasonal cartridge (cut at 1") and the ticket sentiment is from an Inkadinkado stamp.

Thanks for checking out my projects.
