Here's my heart

I couldn't wait. I couldn't wait for a vintage valentine candy box to come my may at a price I wanted to pay so I made my own reproduction. I pleated ribbon, added posies, glitter, seam binding and a tulle bow to tie over the top. Did I mention that I LOVE pleated ribbon?!  I made an extra heart box for my etsy store too. Ahh... Valentine's Day!

Just like the ones I received when I was a teenager and dating, honey. I loved those fancy old boxes all dressed up like that.
