The Pootlers November Design Team Challenge - The Little Things Guylian Christmas Chocolate Box Pictorial

Hello and welcome to today's project.  I am a member of the Pootlers November Design Team and throughout November I am bringing you various projects made using The Little Things stamp set.

I designed this little to hold a 42g box of Guylian chocolates.

I thought it would be nice to use one of the stamps to create my own unique piece of "DSP" for my box so I did some tone on tone stamping in Powder Pink ink on Powder Pink card stock for this pretty and feminine themed Christmas gift box.

To make one of these boxes you will need a piece of card stock measuring 10 1/2 by 7 3/4 inches.

Step 1.  On the short side you will need to score @ 3/4, 2, 5 3/4 and 7 inches

Step 2.  On the long side you will need to score @ 1 1/4, 5, 6 1/4 & 10 inches.

Step 3.  Remove each of the sections indicated with a white circle below.

Step 4.   You template will look this.   Round off the outermost sections with a corner rounder so that your box will be easier to close.

Step 5.   Add a strip of double-sided tape where indicated in the photo below:-

Step 6.  Adhere the box as shown.

Step 7.   Trim tiny wedges from the side flaps that tuck in.

Your box is now ready for your choccies and for some pretty decorations.

For mine I created my own glitter card using Dazzling Diamonds. It was applied to a half sheet of card stock which had been covered in Versamark and Heat n Stick (Heat n Stick is no longer available from Stampin' Up! but there are similar products on the market such as Sticky Embossing Powder by Ranger).    Heat the Heat n Stick with a heat tool and then sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds and heat set with the heat tool.

Then I die cut some pretty pines, a large snowflake and punched out some tags with my Everyday Label Punch.

I finished with a pretty pink shimmery bow.

These would make great little stocking fillers and Thank You presents for teachers at Christmas.  Great for Craft Fayres too.

Well, I hope you like this little offering from me today.

Apologies for slight difference in the photo illustrations.   My original prototype was 7 3/4 x 11, hence the smaller side margin in the photos.   When I shot the photo showing you where to remove sections, I had used a piece that 7 3/4 x 10 1/2.   Both work fine.

Please join me again tomorrow for another of my Christmas Countdown projects.

Have a lovely day.
