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!
