Self-Closing Decanter Style Box for a Terry's Chocolate Orange - Beautiful Year of Cheer DSP

Today's little gem is this decanter style self-closing box which I designed to hold a Terry's Chocolate Orange, although if you were to make it in stronger card, there is no reason why it can't be used to gift a variety of presents.

Chocolate Orange Box, Linda Parker, Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator

I opted to make it in the fabulous foiled Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper, available from 1 September, because the chocolate orange is very light-weight and the box does not warp, and the DSP does hold it's shape very well.  The chocolate orange fits perfectly inside, the way I intended.

There is actually room in the self-closing top part for more little goodies.  I am thinking those Chocolate Orange Segsations (individually wrapped little chocolate segments which are usually rolled out at Christmas).

The beauty of this box is that you don't have to ruin the box by untying the ribbon decoration, because the bottom opens too.

I made a little video - hope you like it and the box of course.

I do apologise for the state of my hair in the video.   Its a good job I was behind the camera !!

Well that's it from me today - off to play in my craft space later.  I have a cute idea I need to try out.

Thanks for stopping by today - Happy Tuesday everyone.
