I have always loved the idea of getting a heart shaped candy box, taking out the candy, and filling the box with trinkets or goodies for my girls that are not candy related.   When I saw THIS adorable box on Frances's blog I knew I wouldn't have to subject myself to the grueling task of eating all those chocolates, even though it was a torture I was willing to endure.  ;)
Frances gives a really great video tutorial and her box is so stinking cute!!!  The stamped image on my project is from Whipper Snapper Designs and is called "Bo Bunny".  The patterned paper is from my scrap stash and the sentiment is a $1 Studio G stamp. 
Instead of candy I filled the box up with Disney trading pins for both girls for our upcoming Disneyland trip.  The whole family collects pins and we are obsessed with pin trading and anything Disney.  I think I was Minnie Mouse in a prior life. 


  1. What an absolutely adorable box!! That bear is so sweet!! You did an awesome job, "Minnie" ;) Your last sentence made me smile!! Happy Saturday :)

  2. The trading pins are a great present idea for your delightful little box.

    Just the right size too!

  3. What a great idea to use the pins instead of chocolates! From now on I'll take the chocolates out (eating them of course) and refill it with something else so I don't feel so guilty lol You have been one busy little bee!
