Christmas Chocolate Gift Box


Create a shadow box with 1/2" sides, the chocolate bar used was 3 7/8 x 7 1/8". Cut 9 x 12 3/8" from A3 cardstock. Score at 1/2, 1, 1 1/2, 2" on all 4 sides. On 2 opposite sides score 2 1/2 and 6 1/2" for 1" in length (4 score lines in total). Cut along each new score line down 2 score lines, then out diagonal for one score line, then straight again to the last score line. Repeat this with step on all new score lines (4 in total). Cut horizontally along the adjacent score line to meet each cut to remove the outer corners (photos will be on my blog to help). Burnish all the score lines with a bone folder and adhere the 2 straight sides first, then bring the mitred corners over the top. (Tip: cut Festive Poinsettia Paper Collection 8B with white cardstock Sweetheart Borders edged in Red Geranium slightly smaller than inside panel to prevent paper buckling when assembled (approximately 8 x 4 3/4"). To create the side panels, cut 8 3/8 x 6" and 8 3/8 x 4 1/2", lay portrait in the scor-pal and score each full length at 1/2, 1".
