Roses are Red...Chocolate is Good


Here's a little treat box filled with some Valentine chocolates that I gave to the grands. I used a SU! window box thinlet die to make the box and added one of the decorative side panels that makes little peek-a-boo holes to tempt you with what's inside.


Here's view of it opened...


And here's what it looks like filled with chocolate candies and closed.

I'm sharing this with the Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - "Roses are Red" which is to use mostly red. I used Real Red cardstock to make this box.

Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great weekend!

This box is very pretty, Carol! I was on the fence with getting this die and eventually I passed on it. It's gorgeous and I love the design of it! I bet the grandkids will love this with those yummy chocolates inside! Love it! Hope your having a nice weekend, too! Hugs~

Those grands are so lucky Carol! lol I love your sweet box, fell in love with it when I saw someone else use it. Of course I don't own it, but maybe one day....Love how it gives you different little cut out peekaboo windows. So cool! Boy, all this Valentine candy sure is making me crave chocolate. lol Hugs, Brenda

I am up for adoption as a "Grand" but only if I get one of these precious boxes and the candy they are filled with. LOL
These are so very special and they can put little things in them once the candy is gone. wonderful Valentine's gift idea.
Hope you aren't getting too much snow. It started snowing here at 11:30 this morning and we are right on the cusp of
4-8 and 6-12 with very high winds.

What a wonderful little box. I love all the holes in it, so sweet. I'm not into boxes and bags much, but this one really catches my eye and I've seen neat things done with it.

I have to say at first glance, I thought the title of this post was "Roses are Red, Chocolate is God" which I thought might be a bit extreme.... although I know some who would agree with that.
