Mousey Chocolate Wrapper

Good evening and thanks for popping by. I hope you've all had a lovely (and maybe crafty) weekend.

The challenge over at House Mouse is to make something other than a card. I didn't want to make a box or bag and then I thought about chocolate bars (very easy to think about, I know) and giving them rather than eating them. A nice bar of chocolate is a lovely small gift or stocking filler and so I decided to make a wrapper to go around it. You need a good thick paper the length of the chocolate bar and wrapped tightly enough so the chocolate doesn't slip out. Then stick down with double sided tape and decorate as you please.

Here's what I started with

and here's the finished wrapper

I shall enter this in the following challenges
House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge 'Anything but a card'
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'Animal Magic'
Dream Valley challenge 'Humour'
The Corrosive challenge 'Fur and feathers'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything goes + option christmas card / creation' (my 4th entry)
Craft My Life challenge 'Anything goes - Non cards'
