After Eight Cottage

So this is After Eight Cottage purely because it’s full of them.

The After Eight Mint chocolates can be slipped out at the bottom of the door. The are perfect for this being individually wrapped.

I made a fence and a double gate from a Martha Stewart punch so there is entry to the chocolates.

I added the house on top of a board and covered it with a snow sheet and bought a tree ornament of a Christmas tree and wrapped it in fairy lights.

I’ve been a keen follower of Creations by AR for such a long time now and way way back made her Haute Tote Bags and thought this time I would give the Tea Cottage a twist to it’s tail.

Of course as there is lights we had to have a night scene picture and all the photos are courtesy of my wonderful husband Chris.

Honest I've only eaten one of the chocolates and that was purely because it fell in my mouth.

I think you’ll agree these design templates are amazing from Creations by AR
