French Inspired Valentine Candy Boxes

Hearts…flowers... amour….. I adore it all!

box 065

A few years ago I found these small Martha Stewart candy boxes on clearance. It was one of those things that I wish I had bought more of. The paper rosettes were left over from a Halloween vignette I made HERE.

This handsome French couple was printed out on cardstock, carefully cut out and edged in glitter.

Decor

As you may know I save all sorts of craft scraps that I organize by color. This was a great opportunity to use up several bits and bobs.

Pearls, vintage millinery, lace and paper.

box 046

The back was finished off with a simple paper punched heart.

I can’t decide which is my favorite,  but I am leaning towards the pink.

They will be filled with candy for my two sweethearts~ one who will love the box and one who will love the candy. :)

  6. They are both so pretty, Laura, I can't pick a favorite! Love that you used up your little left over bits. I save those little scraps and bits, too, thinking they will come in handy for something.

  7. Laura,
    These are both lovely and your Valentines are very blessed! {But I think they already know that.}
    I like Godiva and Chocolate Garden best. What is your favorite?

  12. Gorgeous boxes, Laura. Your creativity is wonderful! As to candy - for me, it's dark chocolate all the way. I'm particularly weak in the knees when it comes to dark chocolate covered pink salt caramels. Ooh la la.

  17. Oh these candy boxes are so pretty Laura! Filled or un-filled they are simply adorable and so French-y.

    I love Dark Chocolate Coconut Clusters (http://www.russellstover.com/jump.jsp?itemID=143&itemType=PRODUCT&path=1%2C2%2C4%2C15%2C108&iProductID=143)and the Dark Chocolate Jelly Sticks (http://www.vermontcountrystore.com/store/jump/productDetail/Food_&_Candy/Food_&_Candy/Chocolate_Jelly_Sticks_(Set_of_Two_10.5_oz._Boxes)/H3698) Bad part is, they are hard to find without buying an entire box of candy - and most of the remaining chocolates, I don't like!

  26. Hi Laura,

    These are just BEAUTIFUL! What a great job you did on them. I like them both, but I definitely think the pink is my favorite.

    I'm very impressed that someone so creative can also be so organized. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way with me. I can be both at times, but rarely both at the same time. :) I'll just have to keep working at it.

    Have a great day!

  27. Love the boxes. I have some heart shaped boxes I have saved over the years will have to see what things I can come up with to do with them. Out of curiosity how do you store things like this from year to year? Sometimes I will not make something I have seen because I am not sure how to store it after the holidays without ruining it.

  30. Your Valentine boxes are so sweet. I love the little couples and the rosettes edged with glitter makes the perfect backdrop.
    I have found myself wishing I had purchased more of something I had found on clearance when I had a chance too but more often I am standing there thinking 'Darn, there's only one of these left!' lol
    Enjoying your crafty tutorials. Thank you so much for sharing them! :)

  37. Laura, I'll be at the Party. These two boxes are sheer delight. They could be vintage candy boxes with all these special details. I'm sure they were lots of fun to create. I've saved special candy boxes through the years. I bet these will be come heirlooms. As for what's inside. I'd want chocolates.
    Happy Valentine's Day! ~ Sarah
