Chocolate Truffles Box (KeyChain)

HI! I haven't written in a while so I'm excited to share something new with you!

Inspired by a petit four rement, I made a mini truffle box keychain. I thought the chocolate box would look so cute attached to my keys or handbag.

I started by making the box template. Then I traced out the box template onto metallic gray card stock. I also made another box using pink card stock. You can choose whatever color you like!

 Remember to cut only the BLACK lines on the template when folding the box.

I then cut out small strips of silver, and gold card stock. This is for the inside of the box. The high shine will make all of the little chocolate truffles pop!

To glue the box and all its parts together I used E600 glue.

Each truffle was made using different colors of polymer clay (the brand doesn't really matter, just choose the colors you like).

Real truffles sit in those mini cups that looks similar to cupcake wrappers so I made a miniature cupcake mold and used black clay to make the mini cups. You can skip this step if you like, but the wrappers make the truffles looks even more realistic and cute.

Here is a link to the MOLD that I used in the video:

If you make your own version share it with me!

Have Fun!
