A "Chocolate" Card & Box

 One for the Chocoholics  

I have made this set using papers from Chocolate set 1  in the Recommended sets section on Free Craft Downloads

I chose to make a Birthday Card and a gift box containing 2 standard size chocolate bars

To make the card I used the template from the Set, one of the papers and the decoupage sheet. I printed the backing paper on white card then printed the template in draft on the reverse. I cut out and scored along the lines of the template
I cut out and made up the decoupage, and stuck it to the inner middle of the card. I edged it with silver border peel offs. to the corners I added some silver peel off corners
Then on the outer "Triangular" sides I added a vertical Happy Birthday peel off and a small flower gem to each side, and edged the triangular sides with silver wavy peel offs.

To make this gift box I printed one of the backing papers on a sheet of A4 white card then cut the sheet in half to make 2 A5 size pieces  On one of the pieces  I trimmed approx half a centimetre off one side of the length and the width
I measured in 2cm and scored lines around all four edges on both pieces of card
I folded and creased along the scored lines and cut in to the score line on one edge of each corner and stuck down using a wet glue  I held the corners in place with paper clips until they had dried properly. I did this with both sheets so I had a top and bottom of a box

I put the 2 chocolate bars inside and to the top of the box I added 3 small paper flowers with a "pull ribbon" on the stems of them
I printed the tags sheet and tied one to the ribbon I put a silver with love peel off on it

The finished items

Thank you Jane for your comment It's very much appreciated.
If you click on the words Chocolate set 1 at the beginning of the blog posting it will take you to the set of papers I used and the template. The lines of the template are pale blue so are a bit difficult to see in the thumbnail but if you click on the thumbnail the template will show up properly
Or you could Copy and Paste the following link into your browser and it will take you to the template


Hope this helps you if you still have difficulty please get back in touch and I will try and help you again
