Merci Chocolates Gift Box with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is a gift box with a cool closure that holds 4 Merci chocolates!

Here’s a different view:

And here’s what the inside looks like:

Swoon! I originally saw this idea from fellow German demonstrator Elvira Hörtner (Elviras Stempelzimmer) and just had to try it myself! The Blushing Bride heart fits through the slit created with the Classic Label Punch to hold the box closed – how genius is that?!?

This is the project I shared during my Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live this week. I’ve created a shorter video tutorial for you, so enjoy!

Here’s the template I created:
