Mini Valentine Chocolate Boxes

Here's a cute idea for Valentines Day, mini chocolate boxes. Fun for kids (or kids at heart) to make or receive. I've been sitting on this idea for awhile, patiently waiting to unveil it for Valentine's Day. Well, we're close enough to the holiday, plus you need time to make them, right? Directions below.

"Red M & M's"


Directions
Supplies:
Martha Stewart Corn Flower Craft Punch ( or one that looks similar)
Card stock - any color
Small box
tiny candy, m&m's, mini marshmallows, honey balls, etc....
craft punch
punch out flower using card stock
*make sure you don't use a paper that will react with the candy
bend petals up to form candy holder

Success tips * If candy cups are loose in the box, glue them down to stay in place. Or you can stuff them in so they don't move around.

* With deeper boxes create a second layer of candy. Place a piece of card stock in between layers.
Have Fun!
