A Little Valentine's Treat

If you're hopping over for the Let's Scrap Blog Hop Challenge, click here!

Have you seen the yummy inspiration over at Stampin' Celebration this week?!  If not, here it is:

When I saw this photo, there were so many things I wanted to create!  Cupcakes, hearts, Valentine's - I was so inspired!  I needed to make some Valentine treats so I pulled out my NEW (to me) Matchbox Die for my Big Shot.  I've really been wanting to make some of the little matchboxes with covered chocolate nuggets inside that I've seen all over blogland.  I thought these would be cute for the boys to bring to their teachers on Valentine's.  Here's what I came up with:

I was really happy with how the little matchbox came out!  I tried to pull the hearts and the dots from the inspiration photo for both of my projects.  I saw a card I really liked by Jenny Peterson where she punched out hearts for her card and I just had to try it.  I love the look!

Here's a picture of the inside of the matchbox.  I covered the little chocolate nuggets (after I ate a few) with Patterned DSP.  Aren't they cute?!

I embossed a strip of Pretty in Pink cardstock and then layered the ribbon around the outside sleeve of the matchbox.  I tied it together with another little strip of ribbon and then topped it off with a rhinestone jewel.  What better for Valentine's?  Chocolate AND jewels!  :)
