One man's trash...!
My oldest son's girlfriend (who is an absolute little doll!!) has picked up on the fact that I like chocolate! I confess...I am a true choco-holic! I eat chocolate almost every day and would eat it three times a day if I wasn't so concerned with attempting to be semi healthy! I love chocolate cake and cookies and chocolate truffles and chocolate ice cream and chocolate turtles and hot chocolate and chocolate pie and chocolate bars! Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! Yum! Anyways! My son's sweetie got me a delicious box of Whitman's Dark chocolate for Christmas! It wasn't long until the box was empty and I couldn't bear just throwing it out, so I did what any dedicated stamper would do! I altered it! I covered the sides and the top and stamped on the top! I transformed it into a birthday gift for my uncle! It will hold a dvd, a package of microwavable popcorn, one candy bar and a matching card! The dvd sits in the box at an angle which will make it easier to get out! I figured I would stamp some tissue paper with birthday stamps and crumple it up to fill the open space under the one side of the dvd! I forgot to add an apostrophe before I took the picture, but that has since been corrected! Hope he likes it!
