I was missing my grandma, so I decided I'd make her something sweet!!

Purchasing a board of chocolate, I measured the width then cut the base of the letter in cardstock accordingly. Based on the size of the chocolate I started scoring: I wanted the cardstock to wrap around the chocolate once before ending in a normal letter. 

Tip: if the chocolate was too wide for the letter to be wrapped nicely enough, I'd simply just add additional patterned paper to "finish" the letter. I was in luck though, this one fit a 12" wide strip perfectly.

Then I cut the patterned paper so it'd cover all the sides of this chocolate-letter.

For the front cover of the "letter" I wanted it to go over the edge some, so I added a little bit of another patterned paper.

Then it's just to start decorating the cover - I used extreme adhesive squares to put together the layers of embellishments.

Here you can find the transparent "clear cuts shapes" layered underneath a snowflake from "the fabric favorites" topped with a "snowflake button dots" with a tulle in between. This embellishment sits on top of the "cardstock sticker borders". Notice the background, where you can find a "decorative edge cardstock" sewn on the cover of the patterned paper.

Before adhering the box together: Sew buttons as the letters' choice of closure on the side (in hindsight: having two buttons would have been better, ahwell)
When done, adhere the chocolate to the letterbox and wrap it, adhering it together.
