Recently my niece and her husband went to Paris to visit. While she was there, she brought me a cute little notebook from the Louvre, and also some chocolate. Some from Paris and some from Ireland. I hoarded that chocolate and ate it a tiny square at a time. And honestly, I couldn't tell you which was better. One was milk chocolate and the other dark chocolate, but both were scrumptious.
The wrapper on the Parisienne chocolate was so pretty that I couldn't bear to throw it away. So I made her a thank you card with it.
My phone didn't do the picture justice. There are little bits of glitter on the wrapper. Where the "weight" of the chocolate was, I cut a tiny piece of cardstock and stenciled in the year.
You can see the sparkly bits a little better in this photo. There was a tiny butterfly on the back of the wrapper, so I cut it out and popped it up for added dimension.
Here is a closer picture of the year that I put over the weight area. For the inside, I used the gold wrapper that the chocolate was actually wrapped in, die cut the "thank you" sentiment several times and glued them together to make it raised. I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card before I gave it to her. Sorry.
She loved the card and will keep it with her other mementos of her trip.
