Shrinky fun!

What can I say... I love Valentine's Day, I love making Valentines, I love My Creative Time's super cute Chocolate Greetings stamp and die set, and I love shrinky dink film so here you go! Super cute candy box. Oh yeah, I also love Lindor truffles. These are chocolate, which are good, but I'm not a huge lover of chocolate so my faves are the white chocolate ones. OH. YUM. But I digress.......

I used a test tube box idea in another new way. Instead of punch the hole in the top for the tube, I glued on a flower instead. Then I stapled a ribbon pull tab to the lid so it can be pulled up to open. Folded down the back part as it didn't need to be so tall without the tube in it, and put a truffle inside. It's the perfect size for one of these delectable goodies!

But here's the funnest part.....a shrinky dink chocolate drop and sweet little message!!! Can you stand it?! I used clear shrink film for the candy then covered it in brown stickles and white film for the message tag. Super easy to do -- just be sure to use Staz-on ink when you shrink.
