I was so happy many of you wanted directions to make the Mini Ghirardelli Box.

Mini Ghirardelli Box Instructions

 Step 1

To make the Mini Ghirardelli Box, you need one 5-1/2” x 7-½” cardstock or DSP. Score on the longer side at 1”, 2-½”, 4-¼” and 5-¾”.  Score the DSP on the shorter side at 1-½” and 4”.

Step 2

The 1” end middle piece at the top is the flap of the box. Use Paper Snips and cut down two score lines (1-½’ and 4” score lines) and cut away two squares on each side. Use the Project Life Corner Punch on both sides of the flap. Cut on the 4-¼” and 5-¾” score lines toward the center of the paper up to the next score line. Add Tear & Tape Adhesive on both flaps on both sides. Note: I used red sticky strip so it would show up better in the photo.

Step 3

Take the middle flap and adhere it to the back of the flap that doesn’t have adhesive. Take the front flap and adhere it to the outside of the box. Do the same thing on the other side.

Step 4

Wrap five Mini Ghirardelli candies with a 1” x 3” strip of DSP.  Punch out hearts and add to candy with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Add five decorated candies to the Mini Ghirardelli Box.

The “Love” is from the January 2017 Paper Pumpkin stamp set.  I fussy cut out the heart and adhered it to the box with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

These boxes are quick and easy to make! I’d love to receive pictures of the boxes you make to share on my blog.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

The black with white polka dots and color scheme for this box was decided by my design assistant, aka, sweet daughter Abby.  I neglected to give her credit when I first posted this box a couple days ago and she did take note of that.  Next fall when Abby’s away at college and my projects aren’t cute anymore, you’ll realize how much she actually helps me.  Thanks so much Abby! 🙂
