All Wrapped Up!

Hello friends
It should be mentioned that copious amounts of chocolate was consumed in the 
making of this blog post!

Today is chocolate wrappers, you may have seen one or two of these before but 
I thought I would share again in view of the Embellished Chocolate Wrapper Class
that is coming up next week.
The class will be an opportunity to use different dies and transform
a bar into a lovely gift.
My favourite Jewel Flowers and Flourishes is featured here.
Flower Box for possibly a manly chocolate bar (if you omitted the lace)? 
And this one I love, the paper has printed buttons but they look real.
And behind the decorations is Galaxy - chocolate bars will be included in the class..of course!
I have some places free so please drop me an email or book online if 
you would like to come along.  As mentioned, a lot of the Coffee and Create
classes are being switched to Saturdays.

And here is Bella with her new haircut... the groomer took some before and after photos
and now Bella is on their Facebook page - fame!

Take care friends, I'm in London today, changing my working days 
so that I can take Elliott to King's College Hospital on Friday.
Sending thanks to M.Walton who kindly sent a wonderful package of knitted
squares - they are wonderful!
Also Elaine (Nattyboots) your squares arrived too, thank you so much for
all the work that has gone into these - I can promise they will be making
lots of families happy.
Enjoy your day.

Hi Christine, Bella is so cute, clipped or not! Love the chocolate wrappers, ever since you first showed them on here, I've been making them for special occasions as table treats and I'm hoping one of our classes later this year will feature them too...have a good day, hugs Carole Z xx

Hi Christine.I love Bella's 'before and after' photos, she's such a poppet! The chocolate bars look so pretty it would be a shame to open them (who am I kidding?!!)Thanks for my purchases(including the little gift) which were waiting for me yesterday when I got home. Love and hugs,

Morning Christine,
Love the chocolate wrappers, they are all great. I wonder who will be eating the chocolate.
Bella looks very cute with her new hair cut, mind you so was cute when she had the shaggy looks as well.
Sounds like you will be very busy putting square together,

What a great idea to decorate chocolate wrappers.

Re squares -- Do you mind having any using different colours of wool? The reason I ask is that people here in Spain are giving me adds of balls to use.

Bella is so cute. xxx

Oooh, Christine - fancy featuring chocolate, one of my weaknesses (though I'd have to have Cadbury's) Bella is a real star, now she has had a makeover, too.

I do love the idea of these decorated chocolate wrappers. Easter/Mother's Day coming up would be an excellent reason to do some of these. Perhaps I'll have a go. Will the chocolate survive long enough to reach it's destination though? :)

Hello Christine. How could you work with all that chocolate and not eaten any? A miracle. Bella is so adorable. Hope it doesn't get chilly again or you really will have to use some of those square and make her a little coat. xxMargaretxx
