|I painted the box (a smaller one than the other one) with red base coat for some foiling. I painted two small wooden hearts with poster paints - pink and blue :)
||Same thing, another angle - I'm actually waiting for the tacky undercoat to dry here - getting ready to foil.
||Here I've applied some gold foiling to the heart. This was my first time foiling - it's really cool - and super easy!
|A closer look at the foil results ... not a great pic though :/
||Here it is, all foiled, and drying, about to be sealed.
||I wrote a poem on the bottom of this one too. Not exactly the same one as before, although similar.
|"Loopy love is alway there|
Near or far I'll always care
And though our friendship is email
Loopy love will never fail"
|Cover it up with chocolate hearts and other chocolate.
||Put the top on. I hot-glued the two little wooden hearts on top.
|You can see the shine a little better at this angle.
||I put the gold cord piping along the outside edge - I think that gives it more of a finished look. It hot glues down pretty easily. I start at the top in the middle, and hot glue an inch or so and press the cord into place, then a moment later, it's stuck, and I can do another inch or two and press it in. It's all the way around in no time at all!
||Same thing at another angle.
|All packed up and ready to go! Those Glad-ware containers are great for this kind of thing! I packed a bunch more chocolate, and some home-made fudge in there too.
