Verve Project Parade and Belated Valentine's Wishes

Hello! I hope you all had a great Valentine's weekend! I had planned on spending it crafting and finishing some last minute Valentine's gifts, but I ended up with a nasty cold that knocked me out for a couple of days. Thanks to Nyquil, I had a restful night and felt better this morning. I decided to get right to work for a belated Valentine's gift for DH from me and Sabrina.

I pulled out a chipboard heart box that I had bought last year to alter (I had taken it out of the bag last year, so I'm not sure where it came from - if memory serves me right, I think it's from Maya Road). I covered the top and bottom with patterned paper from MME Be Loved. The sides of the lid are aquamarine fine glitter. This project is for Verve's January 2010 Project Parade: Tags Tins and Treats and my colors were inspired by both Julee's inspiration photo and this week's Color Throwdown #79 (see below).

I filled it with one of Dan's favorite candies, Nestle Crunch, which for Valentine's Day was available in heart shapes. There are exactly 100 candies in the box, which goes along with the tag that I attached (see detail shot below). The sentiment is from Verve's Hundred Hearts and the tiny rows of hearts are from Thankful Hearts. I cut the tag out from Labels Eleven Nestabilities.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!
