Ghiradelli Christmas Boxes

A few years ago I came across the cutest little box on Splitcoast Stampers that was made for the little Ghiradelli Choclate squares. I loved the box but didn't want to do all the measuring so I made a cut file for the box. At that time I also didn't have the punches I do now so I made the little scallop squares in the .cut file as well so I could cut them out.

This year I decided to make some of the boxes to give to some of my favorite dealers, poker dealers that is, Linda told me I should verify what type of dealer I was talking about so no one would get the wrong idea *okie thinks Linda is so bossy sometimes*.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cart
Cricut Design Studio
Various Cardstock and paper
Stampin Up Scallop Square punch
Stampin Up 1" Square Punch
Martha Stewart Holly Leaf punch
Hot Fix gems

For complete instructions, with pictures, please click HERE.The .cut file is set to cut 3 boxes at a time.

As you can see the little sqaures of chocolate fit wonderfully in the box. If you have the flat ones then 4 squares will fit but if you have the filled chocolate squares only 3 will fit.

To close the box the flap just slides behind the scallop square that is applied with mounting foam.

I used the Martha Stewart Holly Punch to punch out holly leaves in two different colors of green. I used a green marker for the line down the center of the leaves. The berries are hot fix rhinestones.

These make great little party favors and one of the things I like about them is that they are great for any occasion. Decorating with themed paper can make them usable for any holiday or event.
