This box was a chocolate box I had saved from Christmas. I ate the chocolates ( I may have even hid them from my family) and then saved the box as if I always had it. I can be super sneaky that way where chocolates are concerned.
I grabbed the gorgeous Maja Design collection called Life in the Country. Such a happy cheery collection that makes me think of a summer picnic.
These are the papers I used from the collection and shown in the image below:
Porch, Summer Kitchen, Our Deer Summer Cottage
The top of the box is decorated with a gorgeously fabulous die from Spellbinders called Spellbinders Shapabilities Die – Heirloom Oval.
I added white cardstock behind the die to really make the design pop.
Along with the die cuts, the box is embellished with some exquisite flowers from Petaloo, some gold shimmery ribbon and gold floral berries.
The side of the box also has a diecut from the same Spellbinders die set as used on the top of the box. This view of the side provides an exquisite view of how wonderfully the patterns of the paper match and coordinate.
I added paper to the inside of the box as well. Helps cover up the fact that I actually ate a whole box of chocolates. Chocolates? What chocolates. Not me! hahahaa
Another view of the top and the beautiful papers.
Thanks for stopping here today.

Absolut gorgeous and look like something I would love to make too, just with the difference, that I would put the chocolate inside this box as part of the gift too ha ha ha. I know, I´m weird, but I really don´t like chokolatte very much, so I use it for gifts instead, but still loves to make these awesome boxes for it, so I absolutely LOVE your idea and is definitely going to save this idea too, as it looks absolut amazing.
Have a wonderful week-end now everyone inhere.
