I have taken little gifts out to our friends in Holland. For all the men I have made mini dundee cakes, the children have Cadbury's Creme Eggs and for the ladies I have made these mini chocolate boxes. I first made a larger version of them at the Cardinal Colours retreat last September on a make and take done by Jane Gill. I made a smaller version as the original ones were just slightly too big to get out of one sheet of A4. They were decorated using these Chocaholic stamps from Woodware.

I am really pleased with how they have turned out though they were quite time consuming as each box is decorated with four stamped chocolates - each one had to be stamped, watercoloured, decorated and then cut out.
