Happy Tuesday everyone~

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday  Challenge (FTTC152)!! Heather is challenging us to make ANYTHING but A CARD. Valenitne’s Day is getting closer and this challenge is going to be great for the treat box or bag or even a tag to hold some yummy Valentine candy/chocolates :) Please visit Flourishes blog for more information about the challenge.

I decided to make mini treat boxes to put some Valentine’s day chocolates. They are so easy and simple to make (I am always for anything easy and simple, lol)  I used From the Heart set for the heart pieces. The hearts were cut out with the heart Nestabilities.   I designed each box  just like the box HERE, instead I used 6” x 6” designer paper. Then I added the hearts border around the top of the box. To make the heart piece stand, I folded two circle pieces in half and adhered them together for the base. Then I used toothpick for the stand. It is not stable by itself but the chocolates in the box will hold the stand well. I could put 7 Dove chocolates in one box comfortably :) To finish off, I embellished each heart with the rhinestones and flower embellishment. Then I added the small amount of the red grass in the box.
