Explosion Treat Holder with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is an explosion treat holder that perfectly holds 2 Green & Black’s chocolates!

Here’s a different angle:

Here’s what it looks like open:

Here’s the 360° view:

I originally saw this idea from fellow demonstrator Cristina Raak (papersmiley.com). Hers is sized a little differently – I changed the measurements to fit 2 Green & Black’s chocolates.

I decided to give this treat holder an angled closure with magnets! I buy my magnets from Spider Magnets and the ones I used in today’s project are the 8×0.5mm magnets. Here’s is my video tutorial:

And here’s the template I created (it’s of the inside side of the treat holder):

  1. Thanks so much for the tutorial. It was nice to see the black and white diagram for cutting. So many demonstrators use patterned paper and you can’t see where the cutting lines are. This tutorial was so easy to follow and the end result was lovely.
    Many thanks again.

  2. Can you make a video tutorial making a bigger version of this explosion treat box please!!! Thank you for sharing! Love your tutorials!

  3. What a cute box. l had some problem getting my treat box to line up until I adjusted the second score line on the first side to 3 and 5/8. Nicely produced video. I like seeing the score line numbers on the screen.
