Ferrero Rocher place settings

I made these for my mother in law's 80th birthday party, I saw some similar on Pintrest but I wanted mine a bit bigger so worked out the sizes I wanted, after a bit and trail and error!
 I started with a piece of kraft card 7 1/8 by 4 inches, I then scored the long side at 7/8 and 3 1/8 then 4 inches and finally 6 1/4 ,the short side was 7/8 then I flipped it round and did 7/8 in from the other side. I then cut out all the corners and the two inside pieces as well. I used the second smallest size circle die which gives a circle of 1 1/4 inches. I then used a bone folder to fold the score lines. I added double sided to tape to the three flaps on the side without the circle and folded it to make the box.
 I put double sided tape on opposite sides of the sides of the box and added a piece of acetate that was cut to 2 1/4 by 6 3/4 inches, press it on firmly.
 I die cut a border and glued it around the bottom of the box to hide the double sided tape
 I added a length of raffia, wrapped around twice and tied in a bow.
 The final touches, add your chocolate and I needed names so die cut a vintage frame, inked up with distress inks in vintage photo and there you have it a cut little table decoration. I loved making them so much that I might make them again for Christmas to take into work.
