Earlier today I mentioned I would share with you the Valentine Treat Boxes I made for all my Valentines today. I love these cute little boxes they are so quick and easy to make and they can be filled with an assortment of things. Today of course they are filled with chocolate!
I found these Russell Stover chocolates at my local drugstore and thought they sounded yummy – as luck would have it they were just the right size too for my Valentine Treat Boxes!
I think it is safe now to share these with you since I don’t think my kids will be looking at my blog today and I’ve already given my husband his. Here are some close up shots of each of the boxes.
I’ve used the Hearts a Flutter stamp (item 129249/129252) from the Spring Catalog set to create the focal point on each of these little boxes. The Hearts a Flutter is such a fun stamp set to use I find myself reaching for it for all kinds of projects. This first box is my husbands and he got his as he headed out the door for work. (Somehow I don’t think the treat will make it all the way to Lawrenceville.)
This second box is for my son, Johnathan. Although I made this box using more masculine colors I couldn’t resist putting a little “bling” on it. So I used my sharpie to color one of our Basic Rhinestone Jewels (item 119247).
And this final box is for my daughter, Kaitlin – so I made it using softer colors. I just love the Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon (item 126844), it’s so great to work I find myself reaching for it quite often.
I really can’t decide which box is my favorite. Which one do you like the best? Why not leave me a comment below and let me know.
