Materials Needed

– colored paper (not too thin)
– glitter glue
– scissors
– ribbon (about 40 cm)
– paint marker
– glue
– pencil
– chocolate bar


Step 1

Measure enough space for the chocolate (let’s say 2.5 cm on every side of the chocolate bar) and mark with a line.



Step 2

Fold on this line…

… and once again…

… like this:


Step 3

Cut the last part at 2 cm from the edge.


Step 4

On one of the small sides make a criss-cross cut.


Step 5

Unfold the paper.


Step 6

Apply a layer of glue on the back side of the chocolate bar…

… and place it in the middle.


Step 7

Apply a layer of glue on the ribbon too…

… as long as the width of the paper… then place the paper with the chocolate on top.


Step 8

Take the remaining paper…

… fold it in half…

… and draw a half of a heart on it.

Cut the drawing out.



Step 9

With the marker write in the middle of the heart “Happy Valentine’s Day”.


Step 10

Close the box and tie the ribbon making a knot on one side.


Step 11

Apply a layer of glue on the upper part of the back side of the heart, as I show in this picture.

Then place it on the box. Take care that the glued part does not touch the ribbon.


Step 12

Use glitter glue to decorate the heart.

Here is your elegant chocolate box…. ready to be given away to someone special.

Isn’t this chocolate box just fabulous to give out as a gift?  It really is.  Imagine how excited the receiver would be to receive it.  Now, the real question is….who are you going to give this awesome Chocolate Bar Box to for Valentine’s Day?
