so basically, you wrap contact paper onto your chocolate box! it’s a little tricky around the sharp edges and rounded curves, and it really doesn’t look that amazing once you open it — but it’s valentines day so it’s the thought that counts. also, they won’t notice because it’s filled with chocolate.

to do the edges of the box, i just layered little pieces on top of each other. the sides i use long skinny pieces and the top i just laid a big piece on top. then trim. then give.

  1. Awesome idea, I made three of them but had a terrible time around the sharp edges and rounded curves as you mentioned. What I did was cut smaller pieces. It didn’t turn out as good as your but still looks good for valentines.

  2. What a cute idea! I’m completely obsessed with marble contact paper right now and am constantly searching for fun DIY projects to add more marble in my life. I just did my first refinishing job and added some marble contact paper to add the finishing touch to an old bedside table. Would love for you to check it out! https://youtu.be/eZ6CvSc242Q
