Chocolate Boxes add a special touch to a celebratory dinner and can be easily constructed from pretty scrap booking paper. They are the perfect size to hide a chocolate mint or chocolate coin. Long time readers may remember the little chocolate boxes that we made a few years ago, that were mentioned in this post here.
A lovely reader, 12 year old Thea, has turned our hand drawn sketch into a template for you to download. (Thea and her friend are very enterprising girls who do odd jobs to raise money for their favourite charities – you can read all about them on their website Shiny Clean). Thanks so much Thea!
Simply print out the templates and cut around the outline to make your own chocolate boxes. Thea has designed a selection of patterned paper options to make small Chocolate Boxes with a base measurement of 1.5 inches. Alternately, you can trace the outline of the larger template with a base measurement of 2 inches onto your own paper supplies. They also look great made from double sided scrap booking paper.
Here is how you fold the boxes:
