Merci Chocolates Shadow Box

Today’s project is another version of the Merci Chocolates Shadow Box that I shared with you last week and, by request, I’ve created a video tutorial for you!

Here’s a different view:

And here it is with the Window Sheet belly band removed:

Perfect for a sweet Valentine’s gift! Here’s my video tutorial:

And here’s the template I shared. There’s no need to create the little tabs for this project, so just ignore those (wink).

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

  1. Hi Julie,
    I just made your shadow box and loved it. I will be sharing this with my card group for our February day of card making. Thanks for the fabulous directions and video!

  2. Just watched your video again (exciting Saturday night). You do such a great job explaining. I have more of those chocolates on my shopping list for tomorrow. I made a bunch of the single chocolate holders for my trip to Vegas in December. They were a big hit. I gave them to everyone. . . The flight attendants, the ladies at the front desk at our hotel, our servers, housekeeping, the lady who printed our boarding passes. Everyone was so surprised when they got a treat. And your bow in this is awesome!

  3. I saw Merci chocolates and thought of you and your Merci shadow box. Unfortunately it was the gigantic box they carry at BJ’s. I love this dsp excellent choice for Valentine themed projects. I will definitely be giving this a try.
