Oh, what yum! chocolate box


I’m trying to prepare for the few Christmas fairs I’ll be attending this year and as I’ve had quite a bit of success with treat boxes in the past I thought I’d recreate a project from last year. Here’s my updated milk carton box that contains 10 Twilight chocolate mints…

I used Night of Navy card with Wrapped In Plaid speciality designer series paper.

The dimensions and instructions for creating this box are the same as my version from last year with a candle inside – click here to take a look.

I cut a scalloped circle from Silver Glimmer paper with my Layering Circle dies and punched out the middle with my 1/2 inch circle punch. I glued the glimmer circle to the front of the box and put a Stampin’ Dimensional in the 1/2 inch hole.

As I’ve got yummy chocolates inside I used the sentiment ‘Oh, what yum!’ from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White card. I cut this with a smaller Layering Circles die and stuck it onto the Stampin’ Dimensional. This is much easier than glueing onto the glimmer paper and obviously gives you a bit more dimension.

I used Silver Metallic Edge ribbon threaded through 2 holes in the top section to keep the box closed. My final touch was to add some of the Night of Navy dots from the Happiness Blooms pack.

I hope you like my updated version using this year’s new products along with some classics from the Annual Catalogue.

I’ve listed the products I’ve used below.

Happy crafting,
