Heart chipboard candy box...

I (heart) this candy box!

It uses 2 pieces of chipboard from the On Board Heart Book (Occasions Mini Catalog), Whisper White and Chocolate Chip card stock, as well as Sending Love specialty paper and Pretty in Pink satin ribbon.

The "lace" was made with a couple strips of Whisper White card stock that was first punched with the Eyelet Border Punch, then run through the paper crimper.

We embellished with Sweet Pea stitched felt and a pink corduroy button. The banner is from the With All My Heart stamp set. We used our fingers to curl it and then attached it with dimensionals.

For the inside treat, we used a Glassine Bag filled with Muddy Buddies (recipe below).

Most of my stampers took one look at this project at my Valentine Stamp Camp and felt it was too difficult. Taking one step at a time, they were all able to make a beautiful heart-shaped treat box for their favorite Valentine.

Muddy Buddies Recipe:

6 cups Crispix cereal in a bowl.
Add 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup peanut butter that's been melted for a minute in the microwave. Pour over cereal and fold, coating all of the pieces.
Put 1 cup of powdered sugar in the bottom of a grocery bag. Pour in cereal, close the top and shake all around so cereal pieces are thoroughly coated and there are no big clumps.
