Two Simple Chocolate Treat Holders

In today’s post I’m sharing two simple treat holders sized to fit a single Merci chocolate or Godiva mini bar! These treat holders are simple to make, but pack a lot of cuteness into a tiny package! These are great for random acts of kindness, party favors, or swaps! They also use a small amount of paper, so they’re great for using up scraps!

Let’s start with the single chocolate pouch! This pouch has a “pillow box” style bottom to give the treat holder some depth to fit the chocolate. It’s *just* tight enough that the chocolate bar won’t fall out on its own.

Inside the pouch in the photo above is a Godiva Mini Bar, but it also holds a Merci chocolate bar – they are interchangeable, which is awesome!

The bottom is created by using a circle die, die-cut, or punch-out to add curved scorelines to trick the paper into the “pillow-box” style. Here’s a closer look:

I had fun embellishing this treat holder! Simple sentiment, circle layers, and some texture with the trim & a gem!

Here’s the template for reference:


  • Finished Dimensions – 3″H x 1-1/2″W x 1/2″D
  • Designer Series Paper – 6″ x 1-5/8″
    • Score along the 6″ side at 3″
    • Score along the 1-5/8″ side at 1-3/8″ from each side

Now, let’s jump to the mini clutch!

This idea was inspired by Jo-Anne Rogers and I’ve “Pixiefied” it! Sarah Lloyd also shared a similar design in portrait, so this can be book-style or clutch-style! My version closes with a circle die-cut scored and folded in half to give it the “clutch” look.

To keep the chocolate in place, I wrapped a small piece of Designer Series Paper around the chocolate bar and adhered the “belly band” to the inside of the mini clutch. This allows for the chocolate bar to slide out of the clutch.

I used my favorite Velcro Thin Clear Fasteners to close the mini clutch:

    • Score along the 3-3/8″ side at 1-1/2″ from each side

  1. Julie,
    Remember me? Ya, still not making cards yet but I do love your inventions. So
    do the kids. I volunteer at our local school and we got started making them when
    you post them. The kids just love making them (so do I). Keep them coming if you
    would – please!!

  2. Hi Julie. I love having your super ideas for boxes (passion of mine too) and these are really great for table gift at craft days. Thank you for sharing these wonderful little boxes

  3. Ha, ha, ha! Another way to share chocolate! Thanks, Julie! You ‘treat us’ very well!! A fabulously perfect way to show off that gorgeous DSP. You do such a wonderful job of showing us how and including all the little extra helps, like the velcro, to help us all do our best work at home blessing others. Thank you!

  4. Enjoy watching your projects that you create. These are so cute. Can’t wait to make them. Thank you for sharing your talents!!!

  5. Both treat pkgs are really cute. I am working on the double compartment box for coins for St. Patricks day….I am having a terrible time..apparently after 7 tries…I am not scoring something right l.o.l. I do so enjoy your tutorials!

  6. I always enjoy every 3D project you demonstrate. Enjoy your other videos too!!
    Your instructions make it easy to understand how to make the project. Thank you for sharing!
