Just Magnolia and Stamptacular

The Just Magnolia challenge is asking for different shape cards, while this isn't strictly a card it is an alternative shape of sorts so hopefully qualifies!
The stamptacular sunday challenge is to have chocolate somewhere on your creation. I made a little pocket on my bottle decoration which is holding a packet of Thornton's special chocolate!

This is one of my favourite Edwins. He is from the Magnolia Summer Kit 2008. The papers are Basic Grey 'Archaic', I must find some different masculine papers I always resort to these!

Below is the template I used, I used my nestabilities circles to cut the top, I just stopped short of cutting out the whole circle and wound the cuttlebug backwards to take it out!

I used my Scorpal to create the folds where the points are which helps the card hang correctly on the bottle.

This is the basic shape of the box on the front to hold the chocolate. I haven't added any measurements as they differ depending on what size the chocolate bar is. I measured the chocolate bar and then added 2 cm around.

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend, many thanks for dropping in!
