This box measures 5" x 3" x 1.5" not including the ribbon handle. Inside is a box of 3 Lindor Chocolates (I'd like to see you make these boxes and not eat the chocolates!).



Recipe for box - Pixie Pink cardstock, pixie pink classic ink, Versamark ink, classic black ink, Stampin' emboss powder white, Embrace Life stamp set, True Friend stamp set, Short & Sweet stamp set, (white gel pen non-SU, small circle of velcro under flap non-SU).



I just loved this little box of chocolates and of course there isn't a template so I made my own. I cut cardstock about 1/4" larger than the box on each side, I scored the cardstock so it would fold nicely around the box with a 1.5" fold over the front. I laid the cover flat and stamped the leaves image all over it with Pixie Pink ink. I stamped the True Friend (flower?) on a separate piece of Pixie Pink cardstock with Versamark, embossed with the embossing powder, set the powder with heat then cut out the image. I put little decorative lines on the flap with the white gel pen. I then attached the embossed flower with adhesive to the flap. I then decided where it was best to have the handle and I punched small holes on the top of the box, then threaded the ribbon through the holes and tied it inside the box so the knot is now hidden. Last but not least I stamped love you on the bottom right corner with classic black ink.

This is so cute! It reminds me of the little boxes we used to get animal crackers in when we were kids. Only a lot cuter, and chocolate too!
