Gift Box

Chocolate box - a fab gift for Mothers Day! I can't take all the credit for this as Hayley first showed me this - I just adapted it to hold my chocolates!

Start off with a A4 piece of cardstock and trim the shorter side to 6", then score both of the long sides at 3/4". Flip over and score down the length of card at 3" and then 6" - this will create your 'card' and then score at 1 1/4" 4 sections and the last section will be approx 1" (this will create your box).
on the 2 top 3" sections (card section) trim off the 3/4" card that you scored and then cut the flaps on the rest of the sections which create the box. Flip over and on the middle section of the scored boxes (you should have 5 smaller scored sections) stick some Patterned paper the size I used was 1" x 4".
Make the flaps a little shorter on this section as you will not be able to get the circle punch in close enough to punch the holes. Punch 2 holes using the 1" punch - look here at Hayley's blog for better photos and direction!!!
On the top scored section - use doublesided sticky tape or another strong adhesive and roll up the sections to create the box.

I used the cottage garden stamps and I have used crystal effects on my flower.
my box size was perfect to hold 3 Lindt choccies!!
I have used colour combinations - Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. As always some pearly bling to finish it off!!
Thanks for looking
