Decorated Chocolate Bars

I hope you don’t mind me resurrecting one of last years ideas, but I have had a couple of questions about chocolate bars! ………  Please don’t do this to me ……… I have a pair of ski trousers at the end of my bed as a constant reminder that I have to get into them for February 19th when I am going to Czech Republic with my PE Dept.  At the moment I need a safety pin bigger than the one on Orville the Ducks nappy  to hold them together ….. not a good look …… but I digress …..
 Choc bars 1
These are large bars of chocolate – I think they cost about 99p.  I’ve made a new sleeve for them, using part of a 12 x 12 paper, a red band round the  middle, a sentiment and a few twiddly diddly bits and my trade mark faux stitching. It’s amazing just how glamorous and special you can make a chocolate bar look.  This is a little “fairing” gift, instead of a card, that I might give to say George the Banga bus driver (see Mum’s Monkey) as a little thank you for getting me home each night from work.
There are lots of sites with chocolate sayings that you can use, and not just for Christmas ….
It’s not how much you spend, it’s the thought and time that you have put into a small gift that counts.
