Birthday Chocolate gift Ensamble

I made the card not long ago and just changed the sentiment since I decided I wanted to use it for a birthday card. Then as a little gift to go along with it I used some packaging from some sample skin care stuff as my template for this cute chocolate holder. I was at first a bit stumped as to how I was going to cut the half circle to hold the top flap down, but then it occured to me to use one of my circle Nesties! I just lined it up with the template, traced it and cut it with my craft knife. These go together really fast and I think is a nice added gesture when you don't want to spend alot on small gift.

I chose to stuff it with Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate, I hope my friend likes it!
