Making some Valentines samples

Trying a few more crafts to add to the list of things to make for Valentines day.
This is a cute little box! I saw one with a link to the tutorial over at Julia's.
It was pretty easy. I like this because the box is bigger than the ones I have previously made, and I don't have to cut the die cut down. I use the full cut.
The directions show dividers for 4 spaces in the box. I only divided into 2 for my sample.
Here we have a couple of ideas with Ghirardelli squares (the small ones). I made 3 X 3 cards, decorated with scrapbook paper and punched a small hole for a ribbon tie. The ribbon tie holds the chocolate in pretty well, I didn't use adhesive for the chocolate on this one. I used 1 top note die cut folded in half, and I did use 2 sided tape to hold the chocolate in that one. And I tied a ribbon around it. It needs some embellishing, but remember these were only test runs tonight.
These things can only get better!
