Today’s project is a cute little box of chocs to match the card I shared in the March newsletter. Haven’t seen the card? Don’t get my newsletter yet? Why not give it a try.

The box was made using the tutorial I shared here and the base was die cut from Pool Party card using the Petal Cone die and the Big Shot. Everyday Enchantment DSP panels were adhered direct to two opposite sides of the box before it was assembled. Pool Party Ribbon was adhered to the base of the box and wrapped over the sides that had no DSP. Two Very Vanilla panels were stamped with the large and tiny flowers from the Fresh Vintage set using Pool Party ink. The panels were then popped up on dimensionals over the top of the ribbon. The square design was stamped in Pool Party ink onto Very Vanilla card and punched with the Postage Stamp. This was matted onto an Extra-Large Tag punched from Lucky Limeade card and a plain Very Vanilla Postage Stamp was adhered to the other side for writing on. The tag was punched with the Crop-a-dile and threaded onto the ribbon, before filling the box with chocs and tying it closed with a bow. Finally, flowers were created by punching and shaping the 5-Petal Flower from Lucky Limeade and Pool Party card, adding the smallest Boho Blossoms flower in Very Vanilla card to the centre, securing them all with a Silver Brad and popping the completed flower up on a dimensional on the DSP covered sides of the box.
