Ghirardelli Treasure Box

I'm home sick today with the nasty respiratory virus that's going around. So, I thought I'd share a post or two. Everyone I've come in contact with this past week has been ill. I guess I've fought it off as long as possible!
Anyway.... I've been seeing some very cute ideas to wrap the square Ghirardelli chocolates, and wanted to join in. Several years ago, I made a much larger version of this to hold a notepad. I thought I could easily adjust the size to fit the adorable square chocolates. I started with the rich, decadent Reminisce Flirt Forever paper. This paper is irridescent and shimmery - what else goes better with chocolate, right? I made a 2" sqaure box, 1" in depth to hold the chocolates using the paper. I then used Diva Bazzill Bling to make the covering. I cut a strip 2 3/8" X 5 3/4". I scored vertically along the 5 3/4" side at 2 5/16" from each end and pre-folded. I attached a strip of chocolate ribbon to the inside using adhesive, then attached my box to the bottom and back. I cut a 2 1/4" square to cover the inside flap & ribbon and attached. I adorned the top with a heart and shadow cut using my Cricut All Mixed Up cartridge. The box will hold 3 chocolate squares - just perfect! Thanks for looking!
