No-Glue Merci Chocolate Favor with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is a no-glue treat holder that perfectly holds two (2) Merci chocolates!

Here’s a different angle:

And here’s the 360° view:

This project was inspired by both Sam Donald (Pootles) and Linda Parker (Papercraft with Crafty)! Sam’s is a much larger version and Linda’s is very close in size to this one to fit a lip balm. I decided to change the measurements slightly to fit a couple of Mercis. So fun! It’s incredibly easy to put together and requires no adhesive to stay closed. Perfect project to make multiples of. You can get 6 of these out of 1 piece of 12×12 paper.

Here’s my video tutorial:

And here’s the template:

  1. Adorable and looks fairly easy!! Thanks for the video – you do such a great job of explaining things. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks so much, Julie! You are incredible! I’m going to have to order up some of these chocolates – even though they might not make it into a 3-D package. 🙂

  3. Oh my gosh! I was hoping you would have a tutorial on this! I couldn’t decipher the German original! Thank you. Can not wait to make this today! Love your work.

  4. Saw them 2 times earlier, in German, and in English, from Linda.
    I was planning to tweak them al little for on Stage.
    Have something in my head. Thanks for this idea with the chocolates!

  5. Julie,
    Just found these Merci chocolates, deeply discounted, so I bought a bunch. Of course,
    I had to research how to make a favor, using this “new-to-me” chocolate. And I came
    across your sweet “no glue” favor–just adorable! Thank you for teaching us how to
    do it.
