DIY – Puffy Pentagon Box

It’s that time again . . . chocolate is in the air as Ashland prepares for the Oregon Chocolate Festival which starts on Friday. Last year I designed the Clover Fold Box to fit a single Dagoba Chocolate Taster Square. This year I designed the Puffy Pentagon Box which will also nicely hold a Taster Square.

These Puffy Pentagon Boxes are perfect to hold a Chocolate Dagoba Taster Square.

I have included a template at the end of this blog post that you can download to make your own Puffy Pentagon Boxes. Print the template on the back of a decorated paper, then cut and fold. I suggest using card stock for best results.

There’s no glue or tape or ribbon needed to hold this box together. It’s a little tricky to close the box at first, but once you have done once or twice, it becomes easy.

Since these boxes store flat, you can make a bunch at a time and store them. They’ll be ready to puff into action whenever there is a need. Of course, you need to make sure you haven’t eaten all the chocolate or whatever you have to go in them.

    • Sande, I’m so glad you made one of the pyramid boxes. I’d love a photo of it to include in a future blog post about what people have been inspired to make from my blog. I’ll send you a personal email with the details for getting the photo to me. So glad you enjoy my blog!

  5. I just discovered your blog and these wonderful boxes via Phillip Lerche’s 100 envelopes blog. Thank you so much for sharing your art!!!

    • You are welcome, Susan. I’ve been a bit busy downsizing and setting up for traveling lately, so my blog has been languishing lately. I’m now ready to start posting more regularly. I’m looking forward to seeing how my art changes with the traveling I’ll be doing.
