I am just over the moon excited about today’s video!  I absolutely LOVE to make boxes!  I am not always the best “gift giver” but I do like my gifts to at least look nice.  I also know that you can never go wrong when chocolate is involved.

Today, I am going to share with you my version of a box shared by my good friend and fellow Stampin’ Up demonstrator, Sam Donald.  Sam created a smaller version and hers fit these cute little chocolate candies that I had never seen.  Sam lives in the UK and bless her heart, they don’t have Hershey’s there.  It’s so sad, isn’t it?  I know, right?  So, I had to do just a little tweaking to her box to create mine but Sam and I love to share so it’s all good.

I have a couple different versions of the box.  These boxes would also make gifts to place on top of your Thanksgiving dinner napkins and would dress up the table so nicely.

In my video today, I will be sharing the Thanksgiving box.  Why?  Because that Autumn Accents die and the Cherry Cobbler ribbon are on sale!  Wahoo!

I hope you found some inspiration for yourself in creating these boxes!  Want to make them different sizes?  Keep the 5 1/4″ measurement the same but reduce the 8 1/2″ measurement.  How?  Lay your Hershey Nuggets down and measure how long they will be.   Add 1 1/2″ to this measurement and you’re good to go.  Score the exact same way as I did in the video.

  • With the short side up, score at 3/4″ on both sides.
  • With the long side up, score at 3/4″ and 2 1/4″ on both sides.
