There is a chocolate company in San Diego called JFConfections. LOVE LOVE LOVE these chocolates. So much so that I wanted to create a special box to gift some of them to some friends in.
These are not your See's Candies. Nor Fannie May nor Mrs. Field's.
Check out the flavors.....
So, here's the pinwheel box. It can be closed flap over flap in pinwheel style or ...
... side flaps over top and bottom flaps for a different look.
Untie the ribbon and open the flaps to find the delectable treasures inside. **
Dimensions of the box are 4"x 4"x 1 3/4" so it's a great size box for many things.
- Available in George or Plantin Schoolbook. Please specify when requesting file.
- .cut or gypsy files available. Click HERE for more information. ( Please specify which file/format you want when you donate. Thank you.)
- Cardstock used was from CardstockHeadquarters (Thank you Nicki!!!)
- Decorative papers came from a scrap
- Ribbon was in $1 at Michael's (love that!)
Hope you like it. Have a great day!
**You may have noticed a slight difference in the pictures of the chocolates in my box verses the picture of the chocolates menu posted at the top. You can thank my post-person for that problem. The box arrived packaged with a cold pack inside to help keep the chocolates at the correct temperature, but she forgot to give me the key for 3 days! Do you know what happens to chocolate locked in an outside post box in 100 degree temperature?? I'm lucky the chocolates look as good as they do. I was expecting melted puddles of goo. Thank goodness they still taste fantastic even though some are not good for gifting. I will be sacrificing them for quality control purposes. :o) Anyway, I highly recommend checking the website out. They will ship priority mail or next day and they are SO worth it!
Q: CraftyKaren asked what the "brown stuff" is in the base of the box.
A: It's shredded crinkled paper. It's not edible but it will keep the chocolate delicacies from bouncing around the box since I didn't have any candy cups to put them in.
Q: Bobbi had a question about the two small circles with the holes included in the file.
A: The original idea in my head was to attach paper grommets on two opposite flaps and loop a string around them to close the box (side flaps over top and bottom flaps), but decided not to use them because I overlapped the flaps pinwheel style instead.
