sweeteeth chocolate

by Grace Bonney

Today is DIY day, and we have a slew of sweet projects coming up in preparation for Valentine’s Day. I couldn’t resist starting the day off on a sweet note with these handcrafted chocolate bars from Charleston company Sweeteeth. I first read about them on Joy’s blog and was thrilled to see them pop up on my door step from a good friend the other day. As much as I love a good chocolate bar (and these are good), I love a good package design. Sweeteeth’s bar packaging design (created by Fuzzco) is an adorable, vintage-feeling mix of imagery like zebras, bunnies and deer or butterflies and sea creatures (the images below are a special Valentine’s Day design). I really appreciate it when something that’s already tasty gets a dose of cute on the outside, as well.

And in a wonderful twist of the “it’s a small world” nature, it turns out that Sweeteeth’s co-owner Christina Vandiver worked with Barb from Knack (and our Before & After Basics column) to design her daughter’s bedroom furniture. I love when great independent artists in different niches come together.

You can check out more of Sweeteeth’s work (and their great packaging) right here, or view the video of them working in Charleston below. I can’t resist watching artists do their thing behind the scenes. xo, grace
