Happy Valentine's Day - what?

Yep, nothing like posting a Valentine's gift a month late, LOL. I FINALLY put these in the mail this week after sitting on my desk for what....a month? And let me tell you, it took willpower not to open these babies up and eat the chocolates!! (and I don't have any willpower, so kudos to me!).   Anyway, here they are, they are heart shaped boxes of chocolates that I got at Walmart and just decorated the front.
For Anna:
And Paige:

And did I mention I didn't eat the chocolates. I really really really wanted to!! OK, I must confess something, these are actually the 2nd round of boxes I bought, I ate the first two :(

While making these I discovered something.  I'm sure you all already know this, but I didn't. I couldn't find a rhinestone swirl in the lime green, so I pulled out my Copic airbrush system and colored the clear ones - I'm so excited to learn this! Clear rhinestones from here out!! Have a great weekend!
