Easter brings to mind colourful eggs and cute as button bunnies but for a lot of people, it is also a time of indulgence in chocolate; most probably because chocolate is the most popular ‘guilty pleasure’ people give up for the 40 days of Lent.
Our Crew member, Agnes Kieler shares with us how to make an Easter chocolate box – could we ask for a better gift?!?! With only a 12×12 pattern paper from Canvas Corp and a topper from Spring Sayings paper, Agnes created a cute, Spring-themed box; perfect for sharing Easter happiness and joy!
‘Easter is almost here and I can imagine that many of you would like to make small treats for your loved ones. I don’t know anybody who doesn’t like to get chocolate… Today, I would like to show you how to make a very easy chocolate box you can give away as an Easter gift. Hope you enjoy it.’ – says Agnes.

Prepare any paper you would like to use for making a base for your box. 30cm by 30cm is a perfect size and you will still have some left to use on the top of the box or for a card.
You need to make our chocolate box template – measurements are in the photo above.
Now, fold the box along the lines and glue it with double-sided tape.
Once the box is assembled, you can start preparing the decoration. I chose an image with Bunnies – colour it with your chosen mists and add extra cut out bunnies on top of the image to create 3D effect.
I decorated my box with green sisal and added a rectangular piece of white corrugated paper for extra texture.
And after adding the topper with bunnies, your chocolate box is ready.
As you can see, it is an easy project you can get done in no time – what a great way of making a last minute Easter gift!
