Cherished Chocolate Cherries 2010

Cherished Chocolate Cherries

Create a darling presentation for tour christmas treats with ribbons and craft tags.

Cherished Chocolate Cherries 2010For my final craft for the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop I decided to continue with my Christmas theme in celebration of a honored family tradition… chocolate cherries!

The Sizzix Treat Bag topper die designed by Eileen Hull for was the perfect opportunity to create a presentation for these delectable cherries that have been made in my family for generations. I put this topper together rather quickly with the help of Sakura‘s gold Sticklers and Plaid‘s Folk red and gold Art Extreme Glitter paint. Keeping with the chocolate theme, a silky brown ribbon bow pulls it all together.
