Be My...Valentine

A cute home made chocolate box, perfect for your Valentine (my daughter's teachers, in our case)!!!

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves!


Cardstock, Letter Stickers, Glue, Scissors, Paper cutter w/ Scorer, Chocolates, Ruler, Tape
Pretty easy to make
Paper Strips are about 1-1/4" x 3"

Wrap around


Add Letter Sticker.
Inner Box:
This one's a little more tricky since the measurements need to be precise in order to fit each chocolate comfortable.

Black Cardstock: 12" x 3-7/8"
Score sides, measuring 3/4" in between small widths and 1-7/8" in the middle

Line chocolates next to each other and center.

Measure 3/4" from edge of chocolate and mark.

Score sides
Fold Score Lines

Fold Score Lines

Cut from outside to SECOND inner line on the long side (12" side)

Fold Top Flap over

Fold the sides of the flap inwards

Take long sides and fold over shorter side flaps

Use Tape along sides to secure.

Repeat both sides

Add Chocolates to see if they fit!

Outside Cover:
Score SLIGHTLY wider than 3/4" and 1-7/8" but not too much.  Just enough to provide a snug fit over box.

Fold along score lines and glue sides together

Put Together:
Decorate your box how you want!
