Little Boxes

Here are some little gift boxes which are just 3.5cm square and hold a single chocolate, see picture bottom left. I made up my own template for these and it's simply a strip of Real Red cardstock measuring 15cm x 3.5cm which is scored at 3.5cm, 7cm, 10.5cm and 14cm - leaving a 1cm strip to join the box together and 2 squares for the top & bottom measuring 4.5cm and scored at 1cm on all 4 sides. The corners are snipped off to make flaps and adhered to the box on the inside (note only one flap is adhered to the top to act as a hinge). The boxes were then decorated with squares of Holly Berry Bouquet Speciality DSP punched out with the 3.2cm Square punch and one for the top with the Scallop Square punch. A small piece of Real Red Satin ribbon was stuck to the lid under the Scallop Square to enable the box to be easily opened. A flower was made with 2 layers of a flower punched from the Boho Blossoms punch with a Basic Pearl in the centre and a tag punched with the Jewelry Tag punch .
