Halloween Chocolate Box Card

It's day 12 of Smeared and Smudged Forum's 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop!  This has been so much fun, hopping and commenting AND I thank everyone for the awesome comments you've give me! 

Below are all the fabulous bloggers:

It's no secret that I love chocolate. I love looking at it as much as eating it! So I have a series of polymer clay chocolate boxes in many themes. This one might be my favorite! It's Halloween themed, of course!
Here a few of polymer clay chocolate boxes with tutorials:
 The Tempered Empress Chocolate Box 
 The Mike and Candy Show Chocolate Box 
 The Joy Chocolate Box
 The Wedding Chocolate Box
 Materials for the chocolates:
 Polymer clay - dark brown, white and a touch of orange
Aluminum foil
Crochet needle for smoothing the clay
Clay stamps for the pumpkin faces
Each chocolate begins as a compacted foil lump - ball, square, rectangle - slightly smaller than your finished size will be.Condition a ball of clay that is about half the size as the foil.
Flatten and form the clay around the foil.Smooth the clay by rolling it gently on a smooth surface. Take a small piece of clay flatten the bottom and pull out several points for the stem. Add it to the top of the pumpkin.  
Use your crochet needle create the sections on the pumpkin.Lay the needle on the clay and roll it from top to bottom.
This is a close up of the angry eye stamp.
Here is a wide eye that can be turned to make the pumpkin look in any direction.
The triangle eyes are super easy to make.The mouth stamp is a wiggly smile. Bake the clay as directed. The stamps must be baked before using. I normally use paper to decorate the box, but I wanted to try one that is all chocolate.
