Chocolate Boxes

I just finished making these cute little boxes to hold a Ghirardelli chocolate for my Christmas table place settings. They were super easy to make and I think they are adorable!

Step 1:  Using my Die-namics Pointsettia die I cut out a set of the large green leaves, 1 large red flower, 2 small red flowers, a small green centre and a yellow stamen.

Step 2:  Then using a pencil I rolled the leaves so that they would stand up a bit to add some dimension to the flower.

Step 3:  Glue the flower pieces together staggering the petals, add the centre and stamen. I used "Bisque"liquid pearls to add dimension to the stamen.

Step 4:  Cut out a piece of 5x5" paper of your choice. Using the We R Memory Makers Envelope Punch Board ( I used red card stock so you can see the lines easier, but when using the patterned paper put the side you want to show on the box face down. Score at the 2" line, and punch a hole

Step 5:  Move the paper over to the 2 5/8" mark score and punch.

Step 6 & 7:  Moving the paper counter clockwise, match up your score lines , punch and score

Step 8:  I'm just showing the "punch" part as I forgot to do it when I scored and had to go back and do it.

Step 9:  Using the corner punch on the envelope board round all 4 corners.

Step 10:  Using your scissors, cut out the "square" on each corner.

Step 11:  Using a bone folder pre-fold all the score lines. Put 2 strips of glue on one of the points.

Step 12:  Fold 2 edges in and then fold the edge with the glue strips adhering into place.

Step 13:  Put your Ghirardelli square in the box and secure the box closed. I used a sticker.

Step 14:  Lastly attach your leaves and poinsettia to the box. I used glue but a glue dot would work wonderfully!

These were so much fun to make! Hope you are enjoying all this snow we've been getting! It's hard to believe Christmas is only 1 week away! Wow times flies!
