Chocolate Favors: Colorful Chocolate

Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2004

Graphically printed bark (chocolate spread thin and then broken into irregular pieces) is too nice to cover up, so use a clear lid. Grosgrain ribbon, taped around the lid's sides, picks up hues inside. A monogram tag is kept small so as not to obstruct the view.

Tools and Materials
Printed monograms
Box with clear plastic lid (ours was 3 5/8 inches by 4 3/4 inches, and 1 inch high)
Striped ribbon, as wide as the box is high (ours was 17 inches long)
Glassine sheets
Double-sided tape, utility knife, and rotary cutter or scissors

Clear-Lidded Box How-To
Before beginning assembly, design a monogram on a computer, and print it out.

1. Put the lid on the box, so the box can support the lid. Cut ribbon 1/2 inch longer than circumference of box, and secure it to the outside with double-sided tape, overlapping near a corner as shown.

2. Cut the monogram out using the utility knife, and adhere it to the lid with double-sided tape.

3. Cut two glassine sheets to line the box; one should go widthwise across the bottom and up the sides, the other lengthwise. A rotary cutter is best for cutting glassine; it won't pull or tear. Fill the box, and replace the lid.
