Valentine Candy Box Upcycle

This was made for @kittykill for the January Ongoing Wish Swap.

I started with an empty cardboard heart-shaped Valentine candy box. To upgrade the inside, I wrapped some fabric around a batting-lined cardboard heart.

I covered the candy info on the bottom with some appropriate scrapbook paper.

Then for the top, I sewed on a vintage hankie (with batting padding), and crocheted all around. I did not feel bad about destroying the hankie, because it was terribly stained.

I’m happy with how it turned out.


This is loaded with Valentine charm!
