Box - Step by Step Tutorial:
You can click on each of the images to make them larger to read instructions.

Box Decoration:
The chocolate box is made to fit a Lindt 150g block of chocolate measuring 90mm x 192mm x 10mm, if you can’t find a block this size, tweak the measurements to fit the block you have.
Make the chocolate box following the photo tutorial at the end of this post.
From the ‘Trim the tree’ paper, cut a grand Label #11 using the 5th largest die, wrap around the box , attach with double sided tape.
Wrap twine around the box four times, secure with tape.
Cut flourish from ‘Cherry’ cardstock, secure with tape.
Cut the Rosette from the ‘snowman’ paper, cut the centre of the rosette from ‘Cherry’ Cardstock.
Cut a slightly smaller circle from cream cardstock using the circle Nestabilities. Stamp with the sentiment using Lady Bug ink. 
Attach to the rosette with foam mounting tape.   In between the Cherry and the Cream layers, wrap some twine around, cut an additional length of twine (enough to make 2 extra loops on each side).  Adding the extra loops in, secure with the ends of the 1st piece and finish off with a bow and a coloured rhinestone.
Attach the rosette in the centre of the box with foam mounting tape.   For a little bit of sparkle,  add a little stickles to the edges of the rosette.
Finish off with a 15mm strip of ‘Candy Lane’ paper at the bottom of the box.
Add some chocolate, find that special someone to give it to!!
