Fussy and Fancy DT Project - Chocolate

It's challenge time again over at Fussy and Fancy, this time our theme is, "Chocolate", and we're sponsored by Freshly Brewed who are offering a fab prize to our winner.  To play along you can use a chocolate inspired colour scheme, or do as I've done, and make some sort of container to put some chocolates into.  If you want to make a milk carton like mine, you'll find a great tutorial on Kerry's blog, A Load of Old Pickle, here.
 I cut an aperture in the front of the box with a Spellbinders die and added a piece of acetate, so that the recipient can get a sneaky peak at the goodies within.  You'd be surprised at just how many choccies I managed to cram into a relatively small box! The pretty paper is Papermania, Lucy Cromwell, I continued the poinsettia theme by decorating the carton with a die cut flower made with a Marianne die and some fir branches made with a Spellbinders die.  The tag is from the same range as the paper.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges -
ABC Christmas - Y is for You Make It
4 Crafty Chicks - #172 - Food and Drink
Crafting For All Seasons - #67 - Anything Christmas but a Card
Creative Card Crew - #51 - Holly or Poinsettia
Cuttlebug Mania - Christmas - Dies used are, Marianne poinsettia, Spellbinders labels and foliage
