Valentine's Candy Box

Some sweets for my sweets . . .

 
  
 

Don't the chocolates look real?  They're not . . . I made them out of Fimo clay.  Before I added the beads and gems, I had the Fimo "chocolates" sitting on my scrap table, and my husband and my daughters asked me if they could have a one.  They didn't believe me at first when I told them they were fake chocolate candies because they look so much like the real thing, even up close (and even I was tempted!).

I used magenta Shimmerz paint on the paper ruffle, and I sprayed the large Prima flower with Ruby Spritz.  I added a little Shimmerz paint to the flower petal tips.   I altered the box using all Prima products -- Prima papers, flowers, lace, pearls and crystals.

Have a wonderful, love-filled Valentine's Day!!
