        OMG, Thank you!!!!

        The seashells are not hard to make at all! Actually my Husband thought it was one of the easiest tasks he helped me with! lol

        It's just a little messy.

        If you have a Michaels close by home you can get everything you need there.

        All You need is:
        -The chocolate melts. They come in all sorts of colors.
        -Plastic tray molds of whatever shape you want. I bought the soap molds for my seashells. They were bigger than the ones in the baking aisle. They are same plastic material.
        -They sell mini squeeze bottles where you can melt the chocolate in but, they were not much help to me, especially after so much reheating. I found it's easier to use ziploc bags.

        How to create chocolate seashells (or whatever shape your mold is):

        1. Put a handful of the chocolate melts in a zip-loc bag, boil some water, and dip the bag in it. Make sure you get NO WATER inside the bag or it'll ruin the chocolate. So you should only dip the bag in the boiling water for a few seconds at a time.

        2. Once melted, make a whole in the bottom corner of the bag and pour into the molds.

        3. Lightly banging the trays on the countertop after filling the molds helps spread the chocolate out evenly.

        4. Place tray in refrigerator for about 30 mins. Then your chocolates are done!

        Taking your chocolate seashells to another country can be a mission.

        I recommend taking it as a carry on (obviously) in a tupperware. Add a bag of ice ( preferablyice in a zip loc bag and take a few extra empty ziploc bags with you too) inside the container. Once you get to the TSA Security Checkpoint, dump the bag of ice. Ice melts into liquid, so they will give you a hard time and Dry ice is not permitted as carry on. After you pass the TSA checkpoint, go to any vendor by your departure gate and ask them to kindly fill your ziploc bag with ice. My flight was for 2 hrs and between my arrival, baggage claim, and transfer to hotel, that 1 bag of ice barely made it. So, I would recommend before landing, dump the bag of ice again and ask a flight attendant to fill a baggie for you. The chocolate seashells will make it if you keep them cool. Then again, if you don't, they melt and look sloppy.

        Good luck!

            Jessy you have MAD DIY SKILLZ!!! You really rocked it, girl. Good for you! I would love to know where you ordered the Bubbles from. And how did you make the inserts for the luggage tags? Do you have a template you wouldn't mind sharing? Thanks for the inspiration!!

              I ordered the bubbles from wedding channel.com and the luggage tag inserts I made them on vista print. They are business cards. Send me you're email and I'll send you a better pic of it from vistaprint.

                    SUPERB! AWESOME! ORGANIZED! I could go on and on. I viewed your planning thread too many times. Just love it. Where did you get the sand ceremony frame from. I have seen it several times and I really like it.
