Wrapping and boxing chocolate – where can I find tutorials and templates?

Chocolate bars from Norway

Pretty wrapping of chocolate is always a big success as a small gift. I often get questions about the measurements for different chocolates and ideas for making boxes and baskets for them. This article summaries some chocolate types and gives you some ideas for wrapping for Christmas. I am based in Norway, so most of the chocolates given here, are Norwegian chocolates. You will still be able to find some international chocolates and also ideas and link ti templates for general boxes and baskets, that you can use for any chocolates.

Inch or centimeter?

Some templates are given in inch, and others in cm. This is mainly a cultural ting. US, and UK based countries often use Inch, while Europe in general often use cm.  One inch is 2,54cm. Using inch, is all about working with fractions all the time, while centimeters works with desimals. I guess this all comes down to what you are used to use. I know a lot of people struggles with working with inch, mainly because they struggle with calculating and understanding fractions. My advice for you, is to stick to either inch or cm, thorough your project, and don´t mix them. You will often find tutorials and templates in both inch and cm if you look around.

One inch can be divided in  2, 4, 8 or 16 parts. You first give the hole number of inches, and then the fraction left, for instance 2 3/4″. The quotation marks at the end, shows that this is measured in inch. You can find an online inch to cm and cm to inch converter under, if this is needed.
