"Chocolate Box"

I made this cute box last night after the kids went to bed. It can hold peppermint sammiches, Ghirardelli Chocolates, jewelry, or what ever you want to put in it. I didn't have any Ghirardelli Chocolates so I used my ol' stand by peppermint sammiches. I didn't choose the best stamp for it either but it was the only one I had out at the time so I used them so I could show you.

I had an interview this morning for a job!!! Woo Hoo!! I applied for a "lunch lady" job through the school system. The hours are perfect so I won't have to have any day care and it gets me out of the house for a few hours and making some money. (to buy stamps of course) I won't know anything for a few weeks but it sounded like I am going to get it. So I guess I have 2-3 more weeks of day time stamping left. LOL All my kids are in school all day now, I need to get out and do something so I don't go crazy.
Here is where you can find the link to the directions for this box. I made the smaller one because I didn't have any 12 x 12 solid cardstock. I made mine with her directions but it didn't look right to me so I changed them up a little and cut my paper 4 x 8 1/2
Stamps: True Friend
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Bella Rose DP
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, Scor-Pal, White Grosgrain Ribbon, SU Scallop Punch, SU Circle Punches, Hero Arts Pearl Bling, York Peppermint Patties, Glue Dots, Scor Tape

Very pretty! I am a "lunch lady" I started 10 years ago when my son was young. I love my job and for the last 4 years I also work yard duty. I hope you get the job and are lucky enough to have as nice of a kitchen to work in as I do.

Love the box, thanks for sharing! I have been doing the "lunch lady" thing for almost 5 years now. Love it! Even though I don't have kids in school anymore I love having my summers free.
Good luck with the job!

I'm just browsing around for Christmas ideas as its getting ever closer and it will be here before I know it. This chocolate gift set looks absolutely adorable!
The great thing with my family and friends is that I know they are all chocolate mad! So buying for them isn't very hard as I know what tickles their taste buds.
Last year I brought my best friend the boo box from hotel chocolat and it brought the biggest smile to her face.
