Clearly my family knows me well--between my parents and my kids, I was the lucky recipient of three bags of Ghirardelli chocolate squares for Mother's Day. Naturally, after eating the bag of mint chocolate squares, I thought of how I could turn the remaining squares into a craft. I decided to create a pretty wrap that would turn each chocolate into a little gift.
For a quicker version, just create a simple wrap around each chocolate and embellish as desired.
Making the little boxes was easy. Here is how I did it:
1. Start with a 2 7/8" x 6" piece of paper. Score each long side at 3/8". Create four short scores at 1.5", 1 7/8", 4" and 4 3/8".
2. Trim the sides from the top of the box and cut slits at the bottom. Fold the box and adhere the sides together.
That's it! When you are done, decorate the box as desired.

May you never, ever, ever run out of chocolate,
