Chocolate Box

My pal's grandson is making chocolates for Christmas presents to save money this year!  (Don't know that he is going to save much, having made chocolates myself when I used to teach cake decorating - but I have a feeling that it won't be costing him much, but will be costing his gran!).  Anyway she asked if I could make some small chocolate boxes for him.   Originally we were going to try a larger version of the triangular favour boxes that I made,  and then I came up with this prototype of a more standard box, using double-sided card.   The size of the base is 12cm x 8cm x 3cm finished depth.  Added a small poinsettia made with MS poinsettia punch with stickles in centre.

The question now is what to charge for them if he likes them - they take a sheet and a half of A4 card to make each one!

The box looks great! The trouble is nothing is that cheap to make is it?

Hope you enjoyed yourself at The Glitter Pot! xx
