Whileji’#Elfie Chocolate Box Card Craft Fair Gift. Welcome back. Today I have a great little Chocolate Box Card to share with you. I first saw this idea from Sam Clayton at Mixed Up Crafts. She made a much larger version as an Easter treat, but I thought I would share a smaller version that would be perfect for anyone with a stall at a Craft Fair. This would also make a great Teacher Gift, Stocking Stuffer, or a gift for a colleague.
I happened to see some Hershey Cookies and Cream bars in our local supermarket, so grabbed a couple of bars for my crafty stash. These bars are 42g size and measure, roughly, 6 x 2-1/2 x 1/4″, so that is also the size of my box. The box is made in 2 pieces, the card, which forms the front, and the rest of the box, which is stuck to the back of the card. This really is one where watching the video will help with the explanation.
I decided to use Designer Series Paper from Feels Like Frost and Night Before Christmas to show two very different looks. For both versions, the #Elfie are coloured with Blends. The Feels Like Frost version was made in Thick Whisper White card, with the #Elfie in Rococo Rose (Combo) and Seaside Spray (Combo). The Night Before Christmas is in Poppy Parade (Combo) and Pretty Peacock (Light). The faces are in Ivory, with Light Flirty Flamingo for rosy cheeks, Dark Soft Suede and Dark so Saffron.
There are a few colours of card I could have used for the Night Before Christmas version, but I went with the bright ‘pop’ of Poppy Parade. My choice was mostly governed by my wish to use Poppy Parade for my #Elfie. While I could have gone with Cherry Cobbler, which is the other red in the paper, but that seemed to dark for a cheeky little Elf. Oh, and of course I had to add some Wink of Stella to the fur trim!
I have put all the measurements further down the post, so do take a look at those. If you choose a different chocolate bar, you can easily adjust the measurements. Simply take the long measurement as the height, the next as the width and then the tiny one as the depth of your box. Again, if you watch the video, I go through how to do the maths, briefly.
