Anyone for Chocolate?

Hello there, come see what I've made.......

Isn't this just the cutest little box? I happen to think it is. I have actually made 16 of these gorgeous little things. It measures roughly 7cm (2 3/4 ") across, 3cm (1 6/16 ths ") high, that's just the bottom section where your goodies would go, I hope that makes sense to you? The whole box is roughly 6.5 cm (2 1/2 ") high. The depth is 3.5cm ( 1 1/2 "). Pinterest once again offered up inspiration, well actually a tutorial on how to make these. A lovely lady called Teri has a video tutorial and all the details on how to make these over on her blog , Teri's Craft Spot. Just click on her name to go to her tutorial. You can make two of these boxes from one piece of A4 card stock, so very economical.

Look what fits inside...... 

Yummy two Ferrero Rocher chocolates! They fit perfectly inside the box. Wouldn't these be great as a party favour or dinner party treat on your table? I have actually made them as Easter treats, to give to all the lovely people who work at the local bakery I buy my bread from. I think it's nice to reward those who we interact with at the shops.They don't expect it so it's a lovely surprise. I know the boxes don't look particularly "Eastery" but the sentiment "sweet moments" ( from Stampin' Up's  project Life Remember This stamp set)lends itself to a sweet treat of chocolate. Instead of the Ferrero's you could put in a few mini Easter eggs. I think these would also make nice Valentine treats too.

 All materials and stamp sets used are from Stampin ' Up. Some of it is retired stock. The stamp sets are Project Life Remember This and Amazing Birthday.

Have a wonderful day. 
Cheers Donna
