Every Christmas Eve Geoff and I always put chocolates in everyone’s stocking and this year I made little boxes for some Kinder chocolates. Our children are 28 and 25 and they still like to have a stocking, Kayleigh still likes her stocking put at the end of her bed. I thought they would have grown out of it by now but they still get excited when they see their stocking.
For this box all you need is a 5-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of DSP and the envelope punch board. I love all the patterns in the Be Merry DSP pack and this box was a great way to use up some of the larger pieces I had left over.
To decorate the front of the box I used a scrap of Whisper White cardstock to stamp From Santa in Garden Green ink and layered it onto a piece of Garden Green cardstock.
The Christmas Around the World embellishments are so cute but I haven’t really used them on my projects. I’m trying to use up all the DSP and Embellishments that I bought from the Autumn/Winter catalogue because they all retire in a few weeks time. I love the little wooden presents so I adhered one of these with mini glue dots.

DSP or Cardstock: 5-1/4″ x 5-1/4″
You make the 1st punch and score at 2″ and the 2nd punch and score at 2-3/4″.
Rotate 90 degrees, line up the scored line with the notch then punch and score. You do this until all 4 sides have been punched and scored.
Round the corners with the EPB corner rounder and then fold and burnish all the score lines.
*When designing a project or when I CASE a project I always use my cheap cardstock to make a prototype before making it with my Stampin’ Up! cardstock. I do check the measurements I add to my blog posts but when typing lots of measurements mistakes can be made. When making any project I recommend making it first with cheap cardstock before using your best cardstock.*
