Sweets for my Sweet

I made this treat for my honey today.

I've had the idea for it ever since I got the box back in January, so I was excited to finally get it done! I started out with bread sticks, chocolate and sprinkles.
I melted the chocolate, dipped the sticks in, and then rolled them in the sprinkles.
While waiting for them to dry I decorated the box.

I measured each side or section of the box and cut the paper to suit. Then I sanded the edges of the box. I inked the sanded edges as well as the edges of the patterned paper, then covered the box. Finally I added the ribbon and hanging detail.

Supplies Used:
Empty Secret Keeper Box and chipboard phrase by Urban Lily
Papers by Basic Grey
Ink by Stampin Up!
Grungeboard key by Tim Holtz
misc ribbon and charms

Happy Valentine's Day!!
