Valentine’s Day Gift Box

With only a few days left before Valentine’s Day, you may be wandering through the aisles of your local grocery store, or price comparing at different chocolatiers, only to discover that buying boxes of chocolates for your family, friends, or significant other can easily add up to a pretty penny.

The idea to make a little treat gift box came to mind when I’d gone to Kroger’s and discovered these adorable printed takeout boxes with ribbon in the candy aisle. Earlier that morning, it had just so happened that I’d bought shredded metallic filler from Dollar Tree to use as a background for a new makeup palette that I wanted to photograph.


I had no idea what I’d do with the filler afterwards, but when I saw the decorative takeout boxes, and tons of bags in the aisles that were filled with miniature chocolates, it became clear what I would do. I’d make a chocolate treat gift box.

To make the gift box, all you need is a decorative takeout box from your local grocery store or craft store, a metallic or paper filler, and an assortment of mini candies. Pull about a palm-sized amount of filler. If the strands are long, twirl in the hand using your fingers to create a round, nest-like shape. Place filler in box, arrange candies on top, close flaps, and then tie with a ribbon, or tape down and place a bow on top.



These gift boxes would be a great party favor for guests, family, friends, or significant others as a little treat on Valentine’s Day!

Have a sweet Valentine’s Day!

Lots of love,

Not Your Cup of Fashion
