I think that quote is so true! Oddly enough, my best friend Marian is NOT a chocolate lover! The one flaw in an otherwise perfect friend! How could I become best friends with a woman who doesn't love chocolate as much as I do? NO IDEA! Life is funny sometimes.
Anyway. I ran across a darling rubber stamp with that quote and had to have it. I wanted to make a really cute project incorporating real chocolate, and this is what I came up with:
I started with a hinged metal CD case I purchased online here. I searched through my extensive stash of scrapbooking papers until I found some cute prints that incorporated the color brown. I chose some coordinating solid colored cardstock and covered the entire tin, inside and out, with paper.
I stamped the quote on cardstock and matted it with a matching color, then glued it on to the front of the tin. I trimmed one with some satin ribbon and a button, and the other with just a button.
Two full-sized Hershey bars fit perfectly inside this tin! One to keep, one to share with your friend. (And since my friend doesn't like chocolate......I guess I get them both!)
This cute project would make a great little gift for a friend. You could even tuck a gift card inside for an additional surprise.
I have these available for purchase, but not in my etsy shop. Contact me if you are interested!
