chocolates and love!

Valentines is nearly here and I have finally got around to finishing my valentines gift for hubby.

Last week I watched Sheryl's gift box tutorial here and decided I would make a gift box for Valentines and fill it with heart shaped chocs for Callum. I wanted to make the box match with  card I had made for him a few weeks ago.
 And here is the box:


Following Sheryl's tutorial I added a small card on the front and one tugged into a pocket I made on the back on the box-this is what you can see popping out of the top with 3 heart gems.

The heart is made of felt cut using the Big Shot.

And here is the card with the box and 2 of the heart chocs that are inside the box:


A small pressie but one I hope he likes.

So I am now prepared for Tuesday.........are you???

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:

the sisterhood of crafters
Fresh Brewed Designs
Rainbow Lady's Challenges
more than favors
Outlawz

Hope you all have a good weekend x
