Birthday Card with Chocy Surprise!




This project was something I had made some years ago for my Son's birthday (which is shown in the video link), but I wanted to recreate it slightly differently.  I had already purchased my bar of chocolate a few weeks ago, and then I saw Crafty Caroline create a gift present using the same bar of chocolate.  Here is a link to her blog if you wish to check out her beautiful creation,
CraftyCarolineCreates.blogspot.com. (so thank you Caroline).  However, I wanted my chocolate to be included in a card and this is what I created.  Please check out the video link below for details of how I made it.


After I had done my video I pondered what I could put on the front of the card.  Well, as I had mentioned my neighbour John kept bees in the video, it had to be "John's Bees".  I love this card and hopefully John will love it too!

As this card has more depth than the normal card I have also made an Envelope Bag.  This will be showcased in my next blog, so watch this space.....
