In other news, Valentine's Day is Monday so it's high time I share a Valentine's craft project right?
I was inspired by some decorated heart candy boxes I shared on "Enchantment Tuesday" a few weeks ago. I loved the idea, but I've always found the candy that comes in those heart shaped boxes to be kind of a waste of calories, so I decided to make my own candy boxes...and my own candy perhaps?
I began my project with Christmas boxes I found on clearance. Oh yes, they were a good find. Thank you AC Moore. Now if only you weren't on the other side of town...
I decoupaged the lids of the boxes. One of them I covered with leftover wedding doilies and the other I covered with dictionary pages.
My cheap lil glue gun hasn't let me down yet. I love dollar store ribbon.
I added LOTS of embellishments. The more the better right? Doilies, hearts, buttons, ribbon....
These really turned out pretty well if I don't say so myself. Now, wouldn't filling them with Valentine's Cake Batter Bark, Salted Caramel Peanut Bark, and a few other homemade (preferably chocolate) treats make a perfect gift? Uh, hech yes that'd be perfect :o)
Happy Friday friends!
