Valentine Chocolate Bar Wrapper

I decided to try a typography challenge from the blog CSI project. First of all, I needed to found out what the heck typography was.  There are several definitions but here is one that I understood:
               Typography - the craft of composing
 type and printing from it.
Although I didn't know the term before, I realized that I have been doing typography for quite a while now and I love it. Some other projects I have on my blog are....

Of course these are scaled down from some typography I have seen as I am not a digital designer by trade, but I have been "trying" it. For my latest "typography" project, I wanted to cover some king size chocolate bars for Valentines Day and thought this would be the perfect project. To break up the background I cut out a strip of cardstock, framed it with black cardstock, sewed a border, and wrapped it around the bar. The label is cut from a Cricut Cartridge "Lyrical Letters" page 65 size 1". I printed Happy Valentines Day out on my computer.

Here are the PDF files if you would like to print out the typography background I made. I suggest you try your own typography too! It is fun and the possibilities are endless!
