Ruby's Rainbow - challenge and DT call

Our new challenge over at Ruby's Rainbow for the next two weeks is VALENTINES or RED/BLACK if you're not into making Valentine's projects.  We are also having at DT call as we are looking for some new additions to the team.  Pop over to the challenge blog for more info.

I made a milk carton box for my project.  As you can see I have left it open - just secured with a paper clip for now.  Hopefully someone will fill it with lovely chocolates for Valentine's day - but as that's probably not going to happen I may as well buy some myself!

You can find my tutorial for the milk carton box HERE.

I've used a Martha Stewart punch to make the band around the box and managed to find some love heart paper from a very old pad.

I am going to enter this project into the following challenges:

Crafty Creations - Valentine
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Be my Valentine

Hope you join in with the challenge and thanks for looking,

What a great idea, and yes, I wouldn't chance it not being filled with chocolates - definitely get some and fill it yourself. xx
