Chocolate Box

Hello there,

It's my turn to post on the Studio 12 blog again today and I have a little gift idea to show you using a box template and the Studio 12 Picknix CD ...

I printed two sheets of the pink polkadot paper, reloaded them into the printer and then printed the box template on the reverse.  I cut, scored, folded and inked the pieces before cutting an aperture into the front using my nestabilities.  I secured a piece of acetate behind the aperture and added a scalloped circle border around the outside.  Once glued together the box was decorated with a sentiment from the CD, a little heart and charm, some die cut flowers and the cute little pink daisies from the CD.  I nestled some tissue paper in the bottom of the box and filled with chocolate, before fastening with a piece of co-ordinating organza ribbon.  A lovely little gift which took me about 40 minutes to create (which my daughter then tried to pinch. How rude!).

Note:  the box template is from the Polkadoodles 'Paper Boutique' (Vol 1) CD.

Have a great weekend,
Hugz, Jan xx
