Chocolate Gift Boxes

 

I’m off to Valentines Christmas Mega-Workshop this morning, I’m really looking forward to catching up with her and some of the ladies I used to meet up with every month.

I made these gorgeous chocolate boxes as small thank you gifts, one for Clare who will be demonstrating and one for Gaynor who will be hosting the event in her home.

I cut & scored my template using Kraft cardstock, I then cut out an aperture using a large oval spellbinders nestability and my Bigshot.

Next I stamped the entire cardstock using Polka Dot Basics II with Versamark ink.  The last touch was to add some pretty ribbon, (For my hostess I used, Enchanted Evening extra fine polka dot satin) and a label. 

006

For the label I used Stampin Up label punches Large and Small, I stamped the small (kraft) label with Polka dot basics II with versamark ink, then again with turning a new leaf in enchanted evening ink (stamped off once) and finally with Mega Mixed Messaged using Versafine Onyx Black, I then attached the small label to large (enchanted evening) label and pierced a hole in the top.

005

I also made a small 3” x 3” card to go with each of the gifts, they were made pretty much the same way as the labels just slightly bigger and with some added bling.

Thanks for looking
