Chocolates for Amie by Itti Chocolates for Amie by Itti
This was an #Artcrossing gift for ~art-of-amie. She is a super-duper active #Artcrossing member and she also made me an awesome gift when she got my profile so I wanted to make her something awesome.

She said she liked chocolates so I thought she'd appreciate a box of truffles. Of course, she didn't list flavours she liked, because who would go into that much detail, so as it's meant to be a surprise gift I tried to cover a wide range of possible tastes. I also went with one milk, one white and one dark as I didn't know what colour chocolate she preferred (the picture looks like it's two types of white and one dark, but that's because the white and milk centres are both coated in white).

I went with a fruity, citrusy one, a creamy one (Irish cream) and a peppermint. I hoped that at least she would find one she liked out of those flavours! But she got them and liked them, and my fears about whether they would survive the lengthy journey to New Zealand were relieved!

You can see 9 in the box. I actually made her more but I couldn't squish them in ^^;

(I also had a lot of fun with the label - I got to flick ink onto the design for the chocolate that had a cocoa dusting on the top. :D)

The fairy is a little extra gift. I made a load a while back and I thought about exchanging them as #Artcrossing gifts but I was worried about them going to a good home ^^; I found it quite hard to give them away. But then I thought ~art-of-amie would appreciate her :heart:
