Ghirardelli Chocolate Box

I have decided to do a Stamp Camp for the girls in my area this summer. So I will be putting together some ideas here of what to do. I am loving this little Ghirardelli chocolate box. In fact maybe I will use this at the party favor for a shower I am throwing.

Make a box to hold four Ghirardelli® chocolates.


  • One 4 1/4" x 8" piece of cardstock

  • One 2" x 8 1/4" piece of patterned paper, optional

  • Paper Cutter

  • Scoring Tool, Scor-Pal™ used here

  • Scor-Tape™ or other strong adhesive

  • Scissors

  • Foam Tape or pop dots

  • Stamps

  • Ink

  • Additional Cardstock


  1. Step 1

    Score the short side of your cardstock strip at 1" and 3 1/4".

    When using the Scor-Pal™ score at 1", then turn paper 180 degrees and score the other side at 1" again.

  2. Step 2

    Score your long side at 2", 3", 5" and 6".

  3. Step 3

    Cut off the outer strips 3" up on one end. This will create your box flap.

  4. Step 4

    Use a bone folder to crease score lines.

  5. Step 5

    Cut the 1" score lines on both sides.

  6. Step 6

    Add Scor-Tape™ both 1" x 2" strips next to the box flap.

  7. Step 7

    Flip your cardstock over and add tape to the 1" tabs.

  8. Step 8

    Remove the tape liner from the 1" tabs and fold inward.

  9. Remove the liner from the 2" strips and bring sides together to form box.

  10. Step 9

    Trim box flap. Here, it was cut down 7/8".

  11. Your box is done. It's time to decorate it.

  12. Step 10

    Apply adhesive to the back of the patterned paper.

  13. Step 11

    Adhere patterned paper around your box.

    The ends of the paper will overlap a bit.

  14. Step 12

    Create a closure for the box by stamping or punching a small image.

    Add foam tape on the lower part of the back of that image.

  15. Step 13

    Remove liner and adhere the punched piece to the lower part of your box so that the lid can slipped underneath.

    Fill with chocolate.

  16. Your box is finished. You can find it here in the gallery (with a listing of all supplies).

Another cute take on the same box from Rochelle:

This is another project that we did at stamp camp. It is a box that holds Ghirardelli® Chocolates. There is a tutorial on splitcoast which you can find here. However, our box only holds three chocolates, the one on scs holds 4. It was super easy to make too. Another fun gift to give to teachers. Just remember that when you put the dimensionals on to put them on the bottom of the scallop so you can tuck the lid under the top of the scallop to keep it closed.
