Sweets for my sweets

Valentine's Day has already passed, but why not celebrate love all month long, right?  Here's a heart-shaped chocolate box I altered for Valentine's Day.



I made the paper ruffle and painted the edges with Fire Engine Red Shimmerz.  I sprinkled a little red glitter over the Shimmerz paint when it was still wet.


Hungry? How about a little peak inside . . .

They look good enough to eat, don't they?  Not so fast!   I made these scrumptious looking chocolates out of Fimo polymer clay (the beads are the giveaway).

But here's the BEST part.  My jester husband saw the finished project and decided to play a little joke.  When I was in the other room, he snuck into my scrap room and found my Fimo clay.  He made his own little piece of "chocolate", complete with a "bite" taken out of it (he used the handle of a fork to make the teeth marks).  Then he replaced one of the the chocolates in my candy box with the one he made.  So imagine my surprise when I opened up the box to photograph it and saw a half eaten chocolate!!


My husband has a pretty good sense of humor (and his chocolate/fimo making skills aren't bad either).
