Don’t all women want love, chocolate and sweets? This big heart was a labor of love just for a woman. Filled with two homemade caramel marshmallows, a decadant, gold brushed, semi-sweet and milk chocolate truffle, and three milk chocolate dipped fortune cookies. The heart lid is covered in a muted teal 100% cotton velvet. The side made with a handmade Nepalese paper that has been screen printed by a Berkley, California paper artist. The confection box base is lined with a beautiful pale green foil and then handpainted gold with pewter stripes. I originally created this velvet rose to be in a pair as shoe clips and decided singly it adds not only detail but a little function to this ensemble, by using it as a hair, purse or hat clip. The white dove is painted, decoupaged with vintage book pages, rubber stamped and garnished with glitter. The “Mother” tag, I lettered with gold calligraphy ink and then painted with teal accents. It really isn’t just a box of chocolates, it is in fact a labor of love when I think about the careful attention I paid to every detail of this box. When all the confections are gone, hang it on a wall at Valentines Day or set in on your dresser filled with jewelry or letters from loved ones and family. Whatever you think of will suit your surroundings, I’m sure.
Give me a brief explanation of why you or someone you love deserves this delectable box of sweets, and it could be yours. I will announce the winner Saturday, May 8. I can’t wait to hear from you!
