Faux Chocolate in a Box

THIS was such a fun project. It all started out with 3 gal pals getting together on a Sunday afternoon. We had a spare moment so why not............let's make some chocolates......just like the box on the cover in the May Stampin' Success monthly magazine (for Demonstrators only). We only got to make one of the Styrofoam chocolates ........the rest?.........well, that came later..............Here's top of the cover. The finished project size is 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" x 1-1/2". The chocolate has Crystal Lacquer for that sheen and the hearts have dazzling diamonds (of course). Each punched scallop square is popped with dimensionals.

Front side view of box with taffeta ribbon and punched edge:

Take the lid off and reveal the chocolates that are good enough to eat!!!!


Here's a closer view of the sweets:

The (2) boxes do contain real chocolate kisses. The opening is from the bottom.

Here are the dark chocolate and white chocolate bon bons:

Want to know how to make these? Stay tuned tom for the tutorial and supply list.................Have a great day!
