So I made a grown up one for myself, but I had to make a chocolate one for my son. You wouldn't think he was all grown up. I have just given it to him and his little face lit up hahaha.
Instructions can be found HERE
I did mine in blue/turq/white. I am pleased with the way it turned out. The drawers are made from matchboxes, and they are just big enough to hold a small chocolate.

Next I put 2 holes in the top using my cropodile, which went through the metal very easily.
I then added patterned paper to one side of the tray(if the tray was being used for baking this would be the wrong side)On the main paper I marked out a grid of 15 squares. I added a bit of velvet ricrac where the top 2 papers meet, and a scalloped piece of paper to the bottom join. A title was cut on the Cricut and attached with sticky foam pads to give a little height. I added various Christmas stickers to the 25 squares
Next I cut 25 squares from chipboard, I used a thick cuts die, but they could be cut by hand,make sure they are slightly smaller than the squares marked out on the tray. Each chipboard square was covered in patterned paper. I punched out some tiny trees and 'scribbled' numbers on them before attaching to the squares with foam pads.
Lastly I attached ribbon to the holes at the top.
