I have a workshop on Saturday and wanted to make a Valentine themed door prize - and what is more "Valentine" than red heart candies?
I found this clear acrylic box at Hobby Lobby for whopping $2 and thought it was perfect! Because I couldn't fill the lid (the candy would go flying when the recipient removed the lid) I covered it with a piece of Holiday Treasures DP by creating a folded box then adhering the box to the outside of the lid. I really wanted to use the Bella Blossom Rose DP but I miscut my very last scrap of it so this was the next best thing.

The sentiment is from a new Sale-a-bration set called "YUMMY" . The set has 3 stamps (which I cut apart to make 6) and each one can be used to make a label for a special treat. One says "A little Yummy for your Tummy", another "With Love", and the one shown in the photo, "A little something for you". (Sale-a-bration begins February 1st).

This goes together very quickly, is fairly inexpensive and is cute enough that I'm not ashamed to give it as a gift. I think if I make another one I'll have the white scallops go all the way around the box, move the ribbon up just a little and add a heart button or wood piece to the ribbon knot. In fact, I think I'm going to add a heart brad to this one.

Box Lid dimensions: 2.25" x 2.25" x 1.5"

Dimensions for box top: 5.25" square scored at 1.5" on all sides.

Hope you enjoyed seeing what I made for you today. If you are coming to the workshop on Saturday, you just might be taking this home with you.

Thanks for visiting.
