Print the Template
A personalized chocolate box is a thoughtful gift for someone special. It’s the perfect way to show that you care, and it also looks much more impressive than just a regular box of chocolates.
Before printing the template, think about who you are giving the chocolate to and their tastes. This will help you select the suitable types of chocolate to include in the box. It’s also a good idea to consider the occasion and any dietary restrictions that may apply.
If you’re presenting a lot of chocolates in the box, it’s a good idea to use cupcake liners to hold them all in place. You can find these in most grocery stores, and they are typically made of paper with ridges that make them ideal for holding unwrapped candy. Using these will prevent the chocolates from sticking together and make them easier to handle.
Cut the Box
There’s something about receiving a gift box that makes people feel loved and cared for. Chocolate boxes can be great gifts for romantic occasions or holidays or even to show someone you’re thinking of them.
Depending on the size of your chocolates, you’ll need to choose a box that will accommodate them. A rectangular box is best for longer bars, while cubes and pillow boxes work well for more miniature chocolates.
To make a lid for your chocolate box, you must cut out a hexagon around 1/4″ more significant than the top of your chest. You’ll also want to cut out the other side of the hexagon and use sandpaper to refine the edges. If you want your package to have a tapered lid, use a thread and sew a running stitch around the edge of the wrong side of the paper. Don’t tie off the line; pull it to gather the edges and add fiberfill until you get a shape you like.
Fill the Box
Chocolates are a great gift for any occasion. They come in so many shapes, sizes, and flavors that almost everyone can find something they love. But a box of chocolates can be even more special when homemade. Creating a custom chocolate box is easy and will show the recipient that you put thought into their gift.
When choosing a box, consider the shape of your chocolates. For longer bars, a rectangular box is ideal. A cube or pillow box will look nice for truffles, balls, or bite-sized chocolates. You can also use cupcake liners to present your chocolates.
If you want to add a personal touch, write your message or add sprinkles or edible sugar decorations on top of the chocolates. You can also melt some white chocolate and drip it over the boxes for an excellent bi-color effect. Whatever you do, ensure the chocolates inside are as delicious as the packaging!
