Ghirardelli® Treat Box

Who doesn't love a little treat? Especially if it comes in a cute little box.

Need: One 4 1/4" x 8" piece of cardstock

One 2" x 8 1/4" piece of patterned paper, optional

Step 1
Score the short side of your cardstock strip at 1" and 3 1/4".

Score at 1", then turn paper 180 degrees and score the other side at 1" again.

Step 2
Score your long side at 2", 3", 5" and 6".

Step 3
Cut off the outer strips 3" up on one end. This will create your box flap.

Step 4
Use a bone folder to crease score lines.
Step 5
Cut the 1" score lines on both sides.

Step 6
Add double stick tape to the edges and put together.

Step 7
Trim box flap. Here, it was cut down 7/8".
Your box is done. It's time to decorate it with patterned paper/stamps.

Step 8
Create a closure for the box by stamping or punching/cutting out a small image.

Add foam tape on the lower part of the back of that image.

Adhere the punched piece to the lower part of your box so that the lid can slipped underneath.

Fill with chocolate.
