Calorie free chocolate bar

This was very popular at my demo yesterday..... so I thought I would do a little tutorial for you!
This is my little chocolate bar.....

 To make this little chocolate bar you will need.... an x-cut guillotine, an embossing tool, some kraft card, brown inks and some patterned paper.
 Take your guillotine and turn it over so that the bottom of it is facing you. Lay the card over the grid on the back and emboss around your chosen amount of squares.
 When you turn your card over it will look like this....
 Next cover the raised squares in brown ink.
 Trim your chocolate bar to size and cut a little bite out of one of the top corners.
Create a wrapper using some patterned paper (you could always use some foil here too).

A calorie free bar of chocolate!!!

I also use this technique for making Victorian style windows..... but that is a tutorial for another day.

Happy craftin'
