Happy Tuesday!!!!!
The Ladybugs have a new theme today and this fortnight the hostess is Diane who wants to see  "Snowflakes"

Kerry gave each of the Ladybugs an acetate box to have a play with. I coloured my Mr and Mrs Snowman Delight, paperpiecing their hats and scarves.

I then covered 4x35g bars of chocolate to go inside, layering the papers and embossing the pearlescent white paper..

Green & Black's Organic Milk Chocolate  35g

I think this would make a perfect stocking gift or teacher's gift, coming out at under £4 for the four bars and the acetate box.

Here are the sizes and prices for the clear boxes in inches as they will be on the website...

4 1/8" x 4 1/16" x 1" - 45p each
5 5/8" x 5 1/2" x 1" - 60p each
4 7/8" x 6 5/8" x 1" - 60p each
6 1/8" x 6 1/16" x 1" - 70p each
4 1/2" x 5 7/8" x 1" - 60p each

I'm using this gift for the following challenges:-
C4E7, Anything goes,
DVC45, Anything goes,
Squirrel and Fox 31, Anything goes,
Allsorts 181, It's a gift,
MIM116, Anything goes,
SPS, Gift.
Thanks for stopping by,
