Say it with chocolate

So I was in the supermarket yesterday, on the hunt for chocolate for my Valentine. 
My go-to for him is Maltesers or Toblerones. Looking at the packaging of the big 
400g bars, I figured a 12x12 sheet of paper would be pretty much bang on for width, 
so with a little plan in mind, I popped the tasty triangular delight in my basket!

Now, let's not put a 'last minute' label on this (hehe) but I did cook this up in a very short
amount of time last night and I'm pretty chuffed with the result. Super simple to put together
and I've included a link to the cut file further down, for those of you with Silhouette
machines who wish to make up one of these for your loved one.

The cut file uses almost one sheet of 12x12

I've backed the negative space with various coloured scraps

Carefully fold the wrapper around the chocolate bar and run
some double sided tape along the long edge at the top to close
I've embellished with some twine, ribbon, wood veneer and a few snippets, like this Elle's Studio one.
Wishing you a day full of love!
