Gleaming Selection Box

I think I am well and truly getting into the Christmas spirit now – the second lockdown that the UK currently faces has almost pushed me into getting organised and so my projects have turned to Christmas treats for my team at work. Every year, they get a box (or bag) of handmade gifts from me as a Christmas present usually including something tasty and something they can put to use in their role.

This gorgeous box is a selection box and houses four different mini chocolate bars (multipack size). Rather than building segments into the base, I have created four separate mini boxes and then housed them with a single lid. The Brightly Gleaming paper has to be one of my ultimate favourites and I will be sad to stop using this paper when the Mini Catalogue comes to an end. However, whilst its still here, I will continue to use it as much as I can (and quite possibly buy more!)

What chocolates would you house in a box like this? Let me know…

Best wishes,

Flutterby Hi

Teeny tiny projects are the best, they’re so cute and are really good for the craft supplies! This cute little book fold box was cased from Pootles, with some changes to the measurements and the design. It fits two mini Green & Blacks chocolates, one in each half of the holder.

Using leftover elements of my Wrapped in Christmas project kit, I made a contrasting Shaded Spruce & Real Red version. The ribbon is absolutely gorgeous and ties the best bows!

With the paper in the Project Kit, you could make approximately 80 of these as gifts. Or approximately 70 if you make the projects included both in the box and the video mini series!

I hope you enjoy this project!

Best Wishes,
