With Christmas quickly approaching, it is time for me to start thinking about what I am going to make for the Christmas table this year.
Yesterday I was out and saw this cute chocolate basket and I knew that I just had to make them for the Christmas table. I used Stampin Up’s ‘This Christmas’ Designer Series Paper to make the one pictured below.
When I got home I hopped onto Pinterest to see how they were made. I was surprised at how quick and easy they are to whip up – perfect when you have a few to do!
To make these Easy Chocolate Baskets you can either watch my you tube video….
Or follow the directions below!
I hope you enjoy making them as much as I did.
- Cut a piece of cardstock at 9″ square.
- Cut 8 pieces of DSP at 2 3/4″ square. Fold 4 of these squares in half to make a triangle. Cut with your scissors.
- Score the cardstock at 3″ and 6″ on both sides. Use a ruler to score the four corner pieces, on the diagonal, from the corner edge to the score line.
- Fold and burnish all of your score lines.
- Adhere the DSP to the front of the box.
- On the four diagonal score lines punch a hole using a hole punch.
- Thread ribbon in and out of the four punched holes. Tie the ribbon to close the box.
Hint: You can make the box larger or smaller. Ensure that your cardstock is a square and can be evenly divided into 3. Score your cardstock into thirds.
To adjust the DSP measurement – measure one of your squares and reduce the DSP by 1/4″.
