Ghirardelli Chocolate Box

I know, bare with me, but I truly do love SUDSOL. It stands for Simply Unique Demonstrators Sharing Online. www.sudsol.org. I joined for the free trial membership shortly after I became a demo and I'll stay till they kick me out. The information and help has been invaluable to my Stampin'Up! business. This little pattern was shared by Patti, who is one of the main chicks over there. She is always answering questions and steering everyone in the right direction. She's a bomb. :) Anyway, this little box holds one Ghirardelli chocolate. The only thing I added was using the Designer Label Punch from SU! half way down on the inside to make it easier to grab that little piece of chocolate bliss from the card stock. These are made to coordinate with my Latte cards.

Man... if you are demo and need some help with your business, go and check out a free two week trial of SUDSOL. Once you are a member, there are lots of ways to earn free months of membership for participating. It's a win win scenario (Cat In The Hat in my Head). Oh, I'm a dork.

The little charm is from Walmart and the ribbon is oh so sweet Cindy Ribbon (startlitstudios)

The measurements for the box are:
Card stock cut at: 4 1/4 x 7 3/8

Score the long side at:

2-1/4

2-5/8

4-7/8

5-1/4

Score the short side at:
3/4
3/8

Cut all the way down to the first score line from the short side on the 3/4 score line. Then cut from the side so you have a big T shaped. fold up, add your pretties and you are done.

If you want at tutorial, then you have to check out SUDSOL. :) They even have photos.

Cambria,
I am not even sure you will get this...I always watch your blog and love love love your stuff...I am trying to make this sweet treat and am feeling ridiculous because I cannot figure it out. I do not have access to Sudsol and was curious if there was another way I could get a more detailed tutorial. I wanted to make them for my daughters class this week. If you have time let me know. I can get through the scoring part and then cannot figure what the heck to do after that. Thanks in advance for your time...
