Chocolate Gift Box and How to Stamp Reason for the Season by Stampin' Up

Chocolate Gift Box and How to Stamp Reason for the Season by Stampin' Up

Regular readers of my blog will know that I am a big fan of using stamps to create DSP style back ground papers so as soon as I saw Reason for the Season, I knew it would be right up my street and I wasn't wrong. 

The beautiful poinsettia pattern on this paper is created using a mult-step stamping process - today's video shows exactly how to build up that lovely pattern. .

The box neatly houses a full sized bar of chocolate, in this case a 114g bar of Galaxy. I have done boxes like before for mini-bars of chocolate but this one is much bigger. 

You pull on the ribbon and out pops the chocolate bar.

The sentiment comes from the same set, I really like the old fashion font, it perfectly fits the Decorative Label punch.

My colour combos - Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. 

I hope you enjoy the video, if you are reading this in your email click HERE to view the video.

  1. Caroline - I found your blog and YouTube channel about a month or so ago, and LOVE what you create! I really enjoy your boxes and interactive pieces. It is nice to give a gift in o e of these boxes. I will be scraplifting this candy bar box for sure. Love it!!!!

    1. Thanks for such a lovely comment - I am so pleased that you are enjoying my projects x x And I love the work scraplifting, not heard it before but I love it x x

  2. Lovely chocolate box Caroline.
    Can you please give us the dimensions of the block of chocolate as I can't buy the one you used as a sample.
    Thank you for sharing

    1. I will have to buy another to check - chocolate doesn't last long in out house! Thanks for enbaling me to buy more chocolate :)

    2. Did you ever get the measurements for the bar of chocolate? I've never seen this candy bar, so not sure of size. (I'm in the U.S.) Thanks!

  3. This small beautiful box created to put in choclate as a gift seems tremendous piece of art work to me. One of my cousin also creates such art works and they are also beautiful.

  4. There are not very many service stations that offer postal stamps and you can exploit their accessibility hours. You have to make request since greater part of the service stations don't offer stamps. Service stations stay open day in and day out and there is most likely this is a standout amongst other place in the event that you are searching for where to purchase stamps.

  6. I don't know how to pack gifts, so usually I choose products that have extremely beautiful packages, like for example The Trufflers and their chocolate truffles. ;)
