I've made these chocolate box cards to send the kids at christmas. I bought a chocolate bar and measured it to calculate the dimensions of the box. I took an A4 sheet of card and scored the net. folded it and cut it out. I then glued the box together. I then stamped and coloured an image from lili of the valley with a stampin up! sentiment on digi cardstock. I created a freehand border using the sekura micron pen, and added glitter to the images too. I layered mirri card behind the image and added this as a decorative panel to the front of the box. I also found coordinating papers to decorate the sides and top of the box. The chocolate was then sealed inside ready for the kids to open at Christmas.
I think this is a great idea to combine a card and a gift as the flap on the box creates somewhere to write your message and the box holds the gift. you can customise the boxes to have the card open at the front or back (depending on which way up you use the template!!) or make the box to fit a different sized gift. These aren't just for Christmas, change the image and you can send them any time of the year.
