For both boxes I used A Beautiful Thing along with my favorite scallop punch and the new matching rub-ons! I also made matching covered peppermint patties to keep inside the Ginger Bloosom version, but discovered that the Hershey Dark Chocolate Squares fit inside perfectly as well.

I thought I'd start with a project we made at Stamper's club this month. These little boxes are the perfect size for two kisses (or hugs). I altered a pattern created by MamaK at A Charming Place to create eight little chests out of one sheet of cardstock.
Cut along the short score lines (up to the long score line) to create the flaps for your box. Next you will cut off the tiny flaps at the one end.
You will need to trim the two flaps closest to the small front flap in order for your box to close properly (see photo right).
Next, angle the corners of your flaps (see photo). Stamp your cardstock as desired and fold along all score lines. Add adhesive to the outside of the middle large flap and glue the other two flaps to it to create the box. Use a piece of ribbon to tie everything together and embellish as desired.
