Galaxy Chocolate Bar Shadow Box

Well I am the proud owner of the new Large Letters Framelits Die and was dying to use them on a worthy project.  So here is what I came up with :-

I was really impressed by the technique demonstrated by Jan B in her tutorial on how to create a shadow box.

Well I tried it out on a card - its a different technique to the one I used on a previous project and far more simple too.   Here is a link to7 Jan's video for those of you who have not seen it yet.


Anyway - I decided to use the basics for the shadow box to create a beautiful chocolate box for a large Galaxy chocolate bar and I am really delighted with how it turned out.

I used Black 12 x 12 inch cardstock and made the wrapper/sleeve for the box using beautiful papers from the Pop of Pink 12 x 12 pack of Speciality DSP Pack.

I die cut the word "Yum !"  from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Large Letters Framelits Die.   Now - yes these are expensive.   But as a serious papercrafter who makes a lot of personalised cards and scrap book pages, I saw them as a great investment.  I know I shall get so much use from them.   

I love the way my box turned out.   I have made a video tutorial for it which you can view here:-

I do hope you love the box as much as I do.   I shall be adapting it for quite a number of upcoming projects.

Thank you for passing by today.

    1. Really pleased I could help you Rita xxxx I love everything you do - so that is a massive compliment xxxxx

  4. Hi Linda, thanks for another fabulous idea and brilliant video tutorial. I have just made two of these boxes - I crafted along with your video to make sure I got my cutting right! Excellent tip for sticking the box together, my corners are perfect. The hardest part for me as always was the sleeve, I either make them too tight or too loose, but I took my time and it fitted perfectly, oh and then I had to fiddle around with a bow - all that took longer than the Shadow Box! LOL And I even had some chocolate to put in it, there's a surprise (I thought I'd eaten it all). The Large Letters Dies and Stamps are on my 'Wish List' and I can't wait to get them (but I'll have too) Thanks Linda. x

    1. Hello Karen - I feel chuffed you crafted along with the video ! Hope I get to see yours x Amazing you managed to find some choccie to put in it xxx Well done :) Love the fact you have a Wish List too xxxxx

  5. Another brilliant idea. So simple but so effective 😀 x

  6. Hi Linda, I love this! Great for gift giving. Can you tell me the size (measurements) for the candy bar you used? I'm in USA and don't believe we have those Galaxy candy. I want to be able to find a chocolate here in US that will fit this box. Thanks for another great video. I love them all and you come up with great projects! Many thanks for sharing!!
