From the blogger: "Take dollar store or grocery store chocolate boxes with cheesy pictures on them and turn them into bright and fun boxes with paint. You can add other decorations like tissue paper or sequins. With kids, you can add paint hand prints to personalize them. I made fun brushstroke designs to hand out to friends. All you need to make them are chocolate boxes and paint in a few different colors. This can be a fun activity for a craft night with adults or kids. These would be great gifts for Valentine’s Day or to give to girlfriends."

Okay lets gather up those paints you have left over from some painting projects. I know you have some and go to the dollar store and get chocolate heart boxes and start painting them with different colors. You can even add some embellishments on them to make them fancier or even some lace. these are great to store little nick nacks laying around or even your notes. This is a great project for kids to do too or even a classroom project. Nice tutorial and easy and fun too.
