Chocolates boxes to love....

Two of my favorite things are beautiful graphics and aged cardboard. Here are some pics of my very small chocolate box collection. I find them irresistible for two reasons, the beautiful graphics and craftsmanship, and the vintage aged cardboard they're made of. This Pangburn's box is a great example...look at the beautiful font in gold used on this box above, along with the satin chocolate brown ribbon...
open it up and the inside is just as beautiful with heavy gold foil embossed paper! This particular box even has several of the individual little candy wrappers inside..I was thrilled!
The back side (above) is almost as beautiful as the front...
The two boxes above are so gorgeous in person, the huge one on the right was found at Easter on the coast, and the other was purchased on ETSY...
Below you see my little box collection, I do hope to grow it soon!
