Thewells0810 gave me this idea with her very first upload using coffee beans for the shaker. But, not being a coffee drinker, I put a chocolate spin to it. We're going to see great things from thewells0810.

I don't have detailed instructions, but here's some suggestions that might help. The Close to Cocoa base is 4" x 11" scored at 1", 5 1/2" and 6 1/2". That gives you a 1" flap over and a 1" base with the front and back being 4 1/2". (It would be sturdier standing up if the base were wider, but then your chocolate cocoa would barely fit inside. The other paper is cut as follows:
Pretty in pink is 4 1/4 x 3 3/4
Pink polka dot from designer paper is 3 1/2 x 2 1/2
Brown polka dot is 3 1/2 x 1 1/2
Teal is 3 1/2 x 1/4
Vellum is 3 1/2 wide and just long enough to fit the words
Whisper white is 2 1/2 x 2 1/4
Acetate is 2 1/2 x 2 1/4
I used the 1 3/8" square punch to make the window, but punched it twice to make it a little wider.
I didn't have white staz-on to stamp the white heart on the acetate so I used white craft ink and heat set it. That worked well. But then I thought, well, as long as I'm using craft ink and heat setting it, I might as well emboss it, so for the second one I embossed with white EP. Both worked well.
