Toile Tidings Large Chocolate Truffle Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the Large Chocolate Truffle Box that I made during last nights Facebook Live.  I do a Facebook Live each Wednesday at 8 pm CST on my Facebook Business Page.  This is a large box that's holds a half a  bag of Lintz or Moser Roth Truffles.  This box measures 7" x 2" x 2", so you can see it's a great size for gift giving.  For my project today I used the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to decorate my box.  Here's a look at my project.

As I mentioned I used the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to decorate my box today.  The base of the box was made with cardstock.  I used either Real Red or Garden Green for the base and then the other color for the mats for the designer series paper.  I used the same color of the box base for the designer series paper.  With the Toile Tidings it was super easy to pick which color to use.  There are only three colors in the designer series paper; Very Vanilla, Real Red, and Garden Green.  The same pattern is on each side of the paper but in either Very Vanilla and Real Red or Very Vanilla and Garden Green so it makes creating super easy.
The Real Red version was the first one that I made for my Facebook Live.  I used the 1" Real Red Ruched Ribbon to tie the box close.  This box uses one full sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock to make the base.  I scored the base cardstock on the short side at (on the 8 1/2" side) at 2, 4, 6, and 8.  On the long side (11" side) I scored at 2" and 9".
The box was decorated with three pieces of cardstock (cut at 6 3/4 x 1 3/4) for the front, top, and back.  The two side mats were cut at 1 3/4 x 1 3/4.  The Designer Series Paper for the box was cut at 6 1/2 x 1 1/2" (you need three) and 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 (you need two).  To add a little more decoration I used ribbon to secure it close.  I used the Garden Green Double Stitched Ribbon and the Very Vanilla & Copper Classic Weave Ribbon on the Garden Green Box.
