Chocolate Vellum Box

How amazing is the ‘Nothing’s Better Than’ stamp set? You may not like all three feature items in it, but at least one of them will be a vice, mine is chocolate (and sometimes cocktails!). A couple of years ago, I made chocolate boxes for my team which included a long thin chocolate bar – a bit like a Ripple / Flake / Twirl / Time Out. I thought I’d remake these to make full use of the stamp set.

I used chocolate inspired card stock with Early Espresso and Soft Suede for my two samples, using tone on tone stamping by using the matching ink shades. These boxes could be very easily adapted to suit the coffee sachets available in supermarkets, ideal to gift to a caffeine crazy friend / family member.

I wanted to give my boxes a wrap of some sort and a contrast away from the dark shades of cards, so I added a small piece of Plush Poinsetta Vellum around the middle. Finishing off the wrap with a chocolate inspired sentiment. These are such cute boxes and easily to reproduce on larger scales. I have recently made 15 of these for my UK team, which took me no longer than an hour to complete.

I hope you enjoy making them as much as I did!

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
