Make a box to hold four Ghirardelli® chocolates.
- One 4 1/4" x 8" piece of cardstock
- One 2" x 8 1/4" piece of patterned paper, optional
- Paper Cutter
- Scoring Tool, Scor-Pal™ used here
- Scor-Tape™ or other strong adhesive
- Foam Tape or pop dots
- Additional Cardstock
Score the short side of your cardstock strip at 1" and 3 1/4".
When using the Scor-Pal™ score at 1", then turn paper 180 degrees and score the other side at 1" again.
Score your long side at 2", 3", 5" and 6".
Cut off the outer strips 3" up on one end. This will create your box flap.
Use a bone folder to crease score lines.
Cut the 1" score lines on both sides.
Add Scor-Tape™ both 1" x 2" strips next to the box flap.
Flip your cardstock over and add tape to the 1" tabs.
Remove the tape liner from the 1" tabs and fold inward.
Remove the liner from the 2" strips and bring sides together to form box.
Trim box flap. Here, it was cut down 7/8".
Your box is done. It's time to decorate it.
Apply adhesive to the back of the patterned paper.
Adhere patterned paper around your box.
The ends of the paper will overlap a bit.
Create a closure for the box by stamping or punching a small image.
Add foam tape on the lower part of the back of that image.
Remove liner and adhere the punched piece to the lower part of your box so that the lid can slipped underneath.
Fill with chocolate.
Your box is finished. You can find it here in the gallery (with a listing of all supplies).
