Mixed Bunch Matchbox Die

A friend of mine is a consultant for another direct sales company.  This weekend she is getting together with other consultants for a regional event.  She knows several of the trainers for the event and asked if I would make them a simple thank you.  This is what I came up with.

The box the candy is in is from the Matchbox Die.  This Big Shot die will cut the box, the sleeve, and three different tag labels.  I just used the box.  It will cut the shape and fold lines making assembly easy to do.  I stamped one of the small images from the Mixed Bunch stamp set and then hand wrapped the sleeve around the box, holding it shut with some Sticky Strip.  The flower is stamped from the Mixed Bunch stamp set and punched with the coordinating Blossom Punch.  The center of the flower is a Bold Bright 3/16" Brad.  I wrote the trainers name in Tempting Turquoise marker onto the Modern Label tag.
Inside the box are 4 pieces of chocolate nuggets.  Each has been wrapped with a strip of Old Olive cardstock. I stamper the label for the chocolate twice.  Once in Temping Turquoise and again in Melon Mambo.  I cut out the Melon Mambo center and adhered it with some snail over the Tempting Turquoise one.
NOTE:  You can stamp the wrap imaged onto mailing labels, but do not attach them to the pieces of chocolate directly.  The glue for the label is not safe to put on the chocolate.  It can soak through the chocolate wrapper.  Be sure to attach the label to a piece of cardstock first.  I also found that the ink does not stamp clearly on the mailing labels and looks a bit fuzzy.
