We had a nice time at our weekend retreat. Lots of projects completed, good food and pillow gifts! I’ll share the pillow gifts in this post and the rest of the weekend photos in a second post.
We had a lunch date with my nephew at Texas Tubb’s Taco Palace on February 16th which is within walking distance of the Gail Ambrosius chocolate shop. We arrived early in the area so decided to stop in the shop. They have the best chocolate covered caramels so that was what I was thinking of purchasing.
But, the heart boxes full of assorted chocolates were on sale since it was a few days after valentine’s day. So I took the opportunity to provide retreat guests with a fancy chocolate and that chocolate needed a fancy box. So I created one!
The stamp set is Better Than Chocolate, the patterned paper is from the Coffee Break package all complimented with early espresso ink, cardstock and seam binding ribbon.
See how to create the box wrap and decorate the top in my how to video.
