Luxury Flip Lid Selection Boxes! with Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone, it’s become a thing now, where I make my own Selection Boxes to hold the chocolates I choose. I’ve also added a space to present a gift card.

Making your own means you can personalise them and It’s also cost-effective.

I added a flip lid to these, giving them a luxurious feel. You can also use these boxes to gift a nice scarf or some smaller gifts.

Last year’s version was this deluxe style with sliding draws.

I got 11 chocolates in these and I paid £8 for all the chocolate across 3 boxes, making these less than £3 a box, which is so much cheaper than buying one of these sizes in the shops.

You could also stack 3 of these boxes on top of each other and just put the flip lid onto the top one.
