Whiff of Joy Easter Chocolate Box

I'm so cross with myself. I spent ages making this chocolate box for my Mum & Dad for Easter, then didn't take nearly enough photos of it & am really disappointed with the ones I did! You'll have to believe me that this project is much nicer IRL.
I created it with this weeks Whiff of Joy Challenge in mind, where they have a recipe to use one ribbon, two buttons & three papers. I'd been dying to use Mr & Mrs Foxglove since it landed on my doormat a few weeks ago. I have to say it was a dream to colour.

My DPs are MME Wild Asparagus & the swirl around the edge is the Magnolia Halloween Swirl. I used a fab tutorial at Kirsten's Blogg, you can find it here. Next time though I'll have to make the drawers bigger. I couldn't fit many choccies in & had loads left over. I was so tempted to keep the remainder for myself, but no, I was a good girl & gave those to my Mum & Dad as well. Though not without a couple of quality control tests first!!
Hope everyone is having a good week. Thanks for looking!
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
