Pretty Cocoa Container to Give Away…

Pretty Cocoa Container

I found an adorable tea box. But I don’t drink tea. But I love hot cocoa. So I changed the tea box to a cocoa container. Now I just needed to decide what products to use. My Mom loves lavender and purple. So I decided to start there. I choose Wisteria Wonder Cardstock as my Base.

Being a demo, I try whenever possible to use Current Stampin’ Up! stamps and products. But…sometimes its hard. What do you do when need a stamp that can be used to create an overall pattern? I went thru my stash and oh, my goodness! I had a stamp set on my shelf from last year that I had never used. Lucky me! It is also in the new catalog. So I have my cardstock and my stamp. It’s Artistically Asian.

How to create the Cocoa Container:

  1. Cut a piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock 5.75″ by 8.5″
  2. Stamp a random pattern, filling in all of one side ( I used Wisteria Wonder ink)
  3. Score at .5″ on the short side
  4. Score on the long side at 3.5″, 4″, 7.5″ and 8″
  5. Fold on all the score lines away from the inked side and burnish with a bone folder.
  6. Cut away the little squares at the 2 outside corners. This will be the bottom of your box.
  7. Now cut from the edge of the cardstock up to the .5″ scoreline to make tabs.
  8. With a strong adhesive glue the tab along the side to the back panel.
  9. Glue the bottom flaps together.
  10. Now take the narrow sides at the top and pinch together pushing the sides into the box.
  11. Tuck a Cocoa Packet inside the box and wrap a ribbon around the top. Tying it with a knot.
  12. Now die cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using the Stitched Square Die.
  13. Next using your Wisteria Wonder ink and the stamp you used on your Cocoa Container, stamp around the outside of the square.
  14. Using a Darker color, stamp the sentiment in the middle. I used Elegant Eggplant.
