Chocolate Box...

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt! -Lucy Van PeltThis week's Woodware USA Challenge is to make "Anything But a Card." I have had a Russell Stover's Chocolate box sitting by my desk for awhile (since I ate all the yummies inside at Christmas time) and have been meaning to alter it, so I decided now was the time.

I used some Very old Valentine's paper I had in my Scrap Stash and cover the box using 2 of the patterns. The tag and the bottom of the box that you can't see are the 3rd pattern. I think the paper is from Cloud 9.

I stamped the tag with a sentiment from the Salutations set and the little heart in the Birthday Fun set...

I left just a touch of the gold underneath showing between each sheet of paper...

I plan to fill this with something homemade for a dear friend on Valentine's Day...

Here is a shot of the top with the tag and the roses...
