I didn't just take general swaps. I was too slow to get in to an organised swap, but there was a meet-up with some of the top American demos arranged for the international demonstrators attending. I have to say a big thank you to Becky Roberts for all the organising. I wanted to take something special for some of the demos that would be there, as they have given me so much inspiration over the last few years (and have been amazingly generous in blogging and sharing it all!). This is what I came up with:
It's very simple, and perhaps too simple for such inspiring demonstrators! There are a couple of mini bars of Green and Blacks inside – I wanted to share some of my favourite chocolate with them. This is the first time I have used the Naturals Ivory cardstock, and I can't believe I have overlooked it so far. The box flap was cut using the Deco Lables framelits, and the ribbon and butterfly keep the box loosely closed. I didn't want this to end up like my never-opened swaps, so made the closure really simple.
I hope they liked it, but more importantly I hope they enjoyed the chocolate!
