National Craft Month (Day 25)

Hello reader!  A few days ago, I was purging my scrap paper from the brown drawer (9 drawers to go!) of my paper station.  I took my EK Success punch and started punching scrap paper.  After a while, I noticed that somehow they look like layered chocolate when piled at a certain number.  So I decided to play and make me a box of paper chocolate thins:

Because of the shape, I tied the pieces together with ribbon.  After that, I put them in an acetate box which I made too.  Don't they look yummy?

 Here's the box with a matching cover:

Materials used:

cardstock/dp:  Wassau, acetate, leftovers
tools:  Spellbinders, punches (EK Success, Stampin' Up)
embellishments:  flowers (Prima, Recollections), brads, rhinestone stickers (Mark Richards)

We have less than a week before we draw the winners for our National Craft Month blog candies.  There's still time to share us your projects this month.

The link is right here.

'Til next blog!
