Lindor Truffle Ornament Box Video Tutorial

Here is a video of the Lindor Truffle Ornament Box I showed in my last post:


If you subscribe to my blog in email, you will need to click on the blog post title and view it in your browser, to watch the video. I apologize for the abruptness of the video ending, I was having technical difficulties and thought it best to just go ahead and get it posted!

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Start with a 7"x5" piece of card stock. Score parallel to 7" side at 1", 2", 3", and 4". Turn card stock 1/4 turn and score parallel to 5" side at 1/2", 1-1/2", and 6".
2) Cut away all pieces marked with dark gray scribble in picture below. Snip along red lines.
3) Punch 1" Circle (or 1" Square--whichever punch you have that can reach best) in center of the body of the front of the box, as shown in picture below. The body is 4-1/2" long, so center your hole at 2-1/4".


4) Overlap rightmost flap over the top of the leftmost flap, and adhere to create box "tube". Glue bottom flaps closed.
5) Insert Lindor Truffles, folding the wrapper ends toward the back of the box, out of the way. The box holds three candies, make sure the center one you insert is the color wrapper you want showing. Close box top.
6) Stamp ornament in desired color and die cut with framelit. Punch a 3/4" circle from the center of the ornament.
7) Using Stampin' Dimensionals, adhere ornament over hole in box. (yes, the hole in the ornament is smaller than the one in the box--believe me, it looks so much better this way)
8) Wrap about 15" of Baker's Twine around bottom and tie in square knot. Wrap about 24" of Bakers Twine around top and tie in a bow, then tie another bow right on top of that, for a double bow.

Stampin' Supplies: Ornament Keepsakes stamp set, Holiday Ornament Framelits, (or, get the stamp set & framelits in a Bundle for 15% Savings!), Whisper White card stock, Pacific Point card stock, Marina Mist ink pad, Island Indigo Baker's Twine (you could adhere thin strips of coordinating patterned paper around top and bottom, instead of twine, if desired), 1" Circle Punch or 1" Square Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Glue, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Paper Snips, and Lindor Truffle candies :-)

Thank you so much for this tutorial. You saved me--I bought big bags of these truffles with the intentions of making a certain project that I prototyped. Well, long story short, it didn't work and I have two huge bags of these that I didn't know what to do with. Problem solved! Thanks again. I'm off to look at the other goodies on your blog. Have a nice day!
