The Chocolate Box- Quick Make Project

Posted 12 February 2018   |   103 views   |   Hobbies & Crafts   |   Comments (0) Using just card, paper and very simple polymer clay techniques you can make this quick and easy project that is sure to impress.

You will need:

Materials required

Polymer clay: brown and cream

Dimensional fabric paint: red, brown and white

Red card


3mm Double-sided tape

3mm Gold ribbon

White or cream tissue paper


Tools required

Pokey tool

Craft knife





The Chocolate Box- Step 2

1- Use the templates provided to cut out two chocolate box nets. Use a sharp craft knife to carefully cut the heart shape out of the box lid. Apply a small piece of cellophane to the back of the previously cut heart to create a window in the chocolate box lid. Score lines on each box net and use double-sided tape to fold and assemble the chocolate box and lid.  

2- Take 3mm gold ribbon and cover one side in 3mm double-sided tape. Position and apply the ribbon to the box lid diagonally on opposite sides.

3- Create nine simple chocolates, each roughly 5mm in diameter with brown and cream polymer clay. Create 3x heart, 3x circle and 3x square in the two colours. Bake all chocolates as recommended and leave to cool.

The Chocolate Box- Step 4

4- Take a cream heart, brown square and brown circle. Apply white dimensional fabric paint to the brown chocolates and use a pokey tool to create a brown-feathered design. Apply brown dimensional fabric paint to the cream chocolate and create a white-feathered design. Leave to completely dry.


5- Decorate the remaining treats using use red dimensional fabric paint to apply a red heart on each and use brown and white dimensional fabric paint to apply with a pokey tool thin white stripes on the brown chocolates and thin brown stripes on the cream chocolate. 


6- Take white or cream tissue paper and cut out nine circles, 1cm in diameter. Glue each previously decorated chocolate into the centre of a tissue paper circle. When the glue is dry, gently scrunch the tissue paper up and around the chocolate.
