Chocolate Box Instructions

This box will also be "published" over at Scor-Pal's site. Diana from Scor-Pal contacted me yesterday and told me how much she liked it and it is going to be used for her site as well.

Cut the CS you choose for your base
12 x 6.5
Score at 3 / 6 / 9 inches
turn and score at
1.5 and 3 inches
Cut the indicated pieces marked with an x out
and cut along the marked line
assemble the box. Now since this is a 12" long sheet there is no little tab were you can attach glue. I glued mine with a clear tape from the inside together. You can also use tape from the outside but than i would reccomend covering the sides with DP to hide the tape.
Cut 2 squares from CS to 3.5 x 3.5
and one square DP piece slightly smaller
Cut with your Ticket Corner Punch all the corners off. Adhere one of the square CS on the bottom of your box.
Glue DP to the second CS square and adhere this onto the top of your box.
Embellish as desired.
To hold the box close you can do 2 options a) use a piece of coordinating ribbon as seen on my box (just faster option) or make a band from paper to close it.
Smaller Box Measurements:
(with this one you will get a tiny tab so it is easier when you glue the box together)
1 solid cs (3 11/16" x 8 1/2")
2 pieces of solid cs (2 1/2" x 2 1/2")
1 piece of Designer Series Paper (2 5/16" x 2 5/16")

large piece of solid cs (1/3 of a full sheet), score at 2", 4", 6", 8" . Turn and score at 1" and 2" along the length of the CS.
