Lindt Chocolate Hen in a Box/Bag

Hi everyone πŸ™‚

I hope that you like this little box/bag for the Lindt Chocolate Hen. I found the little hens at Woollies Supermarket for $3 each.

This would be great for a fair or market stall, around about Easter time.


So here are the instructions, measurements and video

Box Base:

Card stock: 8-1/2’ x 2-1/4’ Lemon X5785

Score on the 8-1/2’ side @ 2-1/4’, 4’, 6-1/4’ & 8’

Score on the 2-1/4’ side @ 1-1/2’

Page Protector: 8-1/2’ x 3-3/4’ Top Load Pages 4110

Strip for Base: 8-1/2’ x 3/4′ Some Kinda Wonderful X7217B


Card stock: 2’ x 4’

Score on the 2’ side 1’

Paper: 1’ x 4’

Easter Banner: 3-1/2’ x 3/4′ White Daisy 1385

Ink: Black Z2805

Stamp set: Easter Bunny S1702

Adhesive: Tombow tape runner

  1. Fold and burnish all the score lines.
  2. Follow the cutting diagram and remove the long thin rectangle on the bottom.
  3. Cut up the other three score lines, taking out small wedges from the two side flaps.
  4. Taking the Page protector piece. Place the 8-1/2’ side onto the 3/4’ section of the base (make sure that it sits just above the score line).
  5. Using your bone folder, gently press the 1/2′ side section over on the clear page protector.
  6. Add Tombow adhesive to this section and fold the other side over to form the box.
  7. Using your bone folder, rub the section with the adhesive on to seal this join.
  8. For the bottom – Fold the two side flaps in and then the back. Add adhesive to the front flap and fold up to form the bottom of the box.
  9. Add adhesive to the 8-1/2’ paper strip and gently fold and pinch all the way around the 3/4’ sides of the box.
  10. Place the hen inside, and pinch the top together (as shown in the picture.
  11. Place the paper onto the top panel, then place this onto the top of the box/bag.
  12. Using a hand held stapler. Staple the top on.
  13. Stamp the happy Easter onto the banner piece and dove tail both ends.
  14. Attach to the top panel with 3D foam tape.


Here is the cutting diagram:


I hope that you give this little project a go.

So till next time.

Keep on creating and Bye for now
