I have always loved those fancy boxes with windows to give you a peek of what's inside. As a girl, my dad often brought candy to my sister and me, and I used to save the prettier boxes for my "treasures." Windowed boxes were always my favorites, so it's not much of a surprise that I'd eventually design a box with a window in it. I didn't design this box with Ghirardelli sqauares in mind, but what a stroke of luck that they are a perfect fit! (I just happened to have some on my craft table.) Tuck the ends of the wrapper towards the back, and you can fit them 2 deep, for a total of 8 squares. You can also opt to leave out the dividers and use the box for anything else you might be giving that's beautiful enough to display.
I highly recommend that you use a heavier card stock for this since the size of it makes it too flimsy if you don't. The lid also holds up to sliding it off and on better if it's a little heavier. You'll also need a piece of acetate measuring about 4"x4". I save the "windows" from store packaging just for projects like this. I have a whole stash of it! Aren't I a good little recycler? If you don't have any of that on hand, raid your scrapbooking, school or office supplies, and use a page protector.
I've posted 4 other projects in the last few days, so if you've missed them, be sure to scroll down and take a look at the archives, too. They are all suitable for great little Christmas gifts!
