Valentine goody boxes!

Okay, remember those spools of pretty ribbon in the last post????

Well, they came in these little clear plastic boxes.

I take them out of the boxes because I like how they look piled into clear glass bowls.  But I just hated throwing away all those cute little boxes.  So, here’s what I did!

Cleaned them up real good.  Put some assorted candies (candy corn and jelly beans) into little plastic zipper bags and put the bags of candies in the clear plastic boxes.  Since the chocolate kisses are individually wrapped, they did not need to go in the zipper bags.  Then I taped the boxes shut and tied on a pretty red ribbon!  Well???? Whaddya think????

I want to print up some tags to put on the bows.

Cupid kisses on the kisses

But I don’t know what to put on the jelly bean ones?!?!?!  I’ve seen them done as ‘cupid poop’, but that is one idea I’d rather NOT use.  Any suggestions?

Here they are all piled onto a cake pedestal:

  1. I truly enjoy reading about how you recycle everything! As for the jelly beans how about Cupid Hugs – to go with the kisses? Or maybe Cupid Jewels – but I like the hugs better!

  2. Maybe…….take two and call Cupid in the morning???
