Gift Idea – How to Make a 3D Pocket for a Box of Candy in a Greeting Card

If you want to give a friend or loved-one a candy bar for a job well done, this card craft is for you. I’m going to show you how to create a card with a 3D pocket.  You can tuck a box of candy or a chocolate bar inside.

I was inspired by a box of Nestle Smarties, one of my favourite Canadian chocolate candy-coated treats.  I came up with the sentiment “Good Luck Smartie Pants!” for the front of my card and “You’ve Got This!” for the inside.  This would make a great card for someone heading back to school or starting a new job.

Of course, you can do this with any small package of candy or chocolate.  I’ll show you how to calculate what size paper you’ll need for your particular candy.

I hope you found this tutorial useful. If you have any questions, be sure to leave a comment on my YouTube video and I’ll do my best to help you out.

Boxes of Smarties aren’t sold where I live. Help?!

  • Here is a list of candy-inspired sentiments for other types of treats that would work well on the front of your card.  There are a lot of fun options!
  • Really want Smarties like I’ve used?   You can get many boxes of them on Amazon (full disclosure – this is an affiliate link and I will earn a commission if you purchase at no extra charge to you): these are the exact boxes I used for this particular card.  They are so yummy!

The Candy Wrapper Challenge

Crafty Max and I challenged each other to create a card with a candy wrapper incorporated into it.  Wow, Max’s card turned out beautifully!  You can watch how he created his card on his channel or embedded below.

I want to extend this challenge to you as well! I’d love to see your card that uses a candy wrapper or two!
