Chocolate trifold

I started on this last night after my kids went to bed. I was working on it but decided that I just had to go to bed. It felt like it was about 11 or 12 midnight. I cleaned up my area a bit and went in to get in bed and it was barely 10 o'clock! I went to be early. Yes, 10 is very early for me. It was a good thing because daylight savings started today and I lost an hour of sleep.
I finished this this evening. It wasn't a very difficult project. I just covered three coasters with the new chocolate paper from the SU spring mini catalog, using the snail adhesive. I used my new cropadile to punch the holes in the coaster (love that new tool!!) and then tied chocolate ribbon through them. I tied them with the knots on the front because I thought it looked cuter that way. This is meant to stand up on a mantel or something, not to close up, so the ribbon is mostly for looks. These pictures are some of the same ones that were on my canvas I posted a few days ago. When my mom saw that, she did the pouty...."I wish I had those pictures of the kids..." thing, so this is for her. I added some prima flowers and beads using glue dots and crystal effects. I stamped "LOVE" with my new Rough edges alphabet and punched the letters out using the 1/4" circle punch. I hope mom likes it!!
