During our weekend away my friends and I visited the Lindt Chocolate Outlet in Pennsylvania. I thought I had died and gone to heaven! They had bins and bins with every flavor filling you could imagine. You could pick and choose to fill a bag with different flavors. My mind was racing …I saw Stampin’ Up! colors everywhere and couldn’t wait to make these adorable mini cracker boxes to color coordinate.
The Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice for these gold and copper foiled truffles. These are really quick & easy to make with one of my favorite “must have” tools, the Envelope Punch Board. Susan has been waiting patiently for me to post the measurements for these so Susan, this is for you!!!!
Start with a piece of 4 1/4 x 6 piece of DSP. Use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool (another favorite well loved tool!!!!) to score along the 6″ side at 1 3/8, 2 3/4, 4 1/8, 5 1/2. Turn and score (with the 4 1/4″ side across the top) at 1 3/8. Fold along the score lines.
Next use the Envelope Punch Board and with the short side across the top, line up the DSP at the 1″ mark and punch. *The 1 3/8 score line should be off to the right. You will fold and punch along each score line at the 1″ mark. *You will be punching through two layers each time except the one on the end which will just be one layer.
Next, cut up on the score lines at the bottom to the 1 3/8 score line. Cut off the small rectangle along the bottom and apply Tear & tape on the end as shown below. Fold and adhere the sides of the box then fold the bottom flaps and adhere with Multipurpose Liquid.
Fill with a chocolate ball, pinch the top to close, then tie with ribbon. This is a quick & easy treat for table favors, coworkers, or to give out as you go through the drive thru to get your cup of coffee, etc. I had so much fun making these to go with all the different chocolate flavors.
These snowman wrapped Milk and White Chocolate truffles are a Limited Edition (just like the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper which in only Available While Supplies Last…stock up now!!!).
The Be Merry Designer Series Paper used below was perfect for the seasonal Peppermint Milk Chocolate Truffles. YUM!!!!
