I made these cakeboxes from TBBM for my nieces Bridal Shower.
I shrunk the boxes down on my gypsy to 6.43 X 5.16 (cut 4 out of 12x12)
I embossed using D'Vine Swirls.

On just the embossing I added Crystal Effects and Sprinkled MS Crystal Fine glitter

Using SU cardstock Sage Shadow I cut 2 strips 3/8"w x 4-1/2"L ran them thru the crimper. The first strip I formed my loops and the second strip is the tails folded in half and slighly spread apart. I then cut a tiny piece 3/4"Lx3/8"w and wrapped it around the center of my loops then attached the tails to the back.

With Brown cardstock I cut a strip 1"w x 8-1/2"L and folded in half and embossed using Distressed Stripes. I ran red tacky tape along the top and bottom and placed the tip of the cakebox in the brown fold. Make sure the brown runs along the bottom edge of the box, it won't come to the top and thats fine cause the "icing" drippy goo punch will cover the chocolate edge. Cut off excess.
For the icing I cut a strip 6-1/4 X 1" and used the MS drippy goo punch, I then trimmed the strip down to 9/16"w added red tacky tape and attached it to the top along the sides of the box. Trim excess.  
On the back I cut a piece of white cardstock 1-1/2"w x 1"h and edged it in Sage Shadow and using my 6pt Justrite stamps, I stamped the sentiment. (hint...the box will be filled with hugs and kisses chocolates)

I have the opening of the box upwards so when they open it the chocolate doesn't fall out and I made a little "pull" tab so they'll know how to open it.
I made 20+ boxes and formed 2 circles using 10 boxes a circle and then made a rose to put in the centers.
