diy: my fudgy valentine.

it's been a loong day of crafting.
but i'm finally finished with all but one valentine's day project.
& that one hopefully will be done tomorrow.
i can usually get more done when the dude is in school & it's just me & the babe.
odd, right? you'd think it'd be the opposite.
not here.

so these are mason's valentine's for his class.
i'm not going to lie.
it was a tad bit more work than i anticipated.
but i'm very happy with the end result.

can you tell what the tubs are?

how about now?

yep. in their former life they were baby food containers.
(don't worry i washed them twice, really good, with hot soapy water)
they just seemed like the perfect container for something...

so i put this inside.
(it's fudge. with sprinkles. heart shaped sprinkles. :)
nothing fancy.
kid's aren't that particular about their chocolate, ya know :)
it's a foolproof fudge recipe.
appropriately named & available here at eagle brand.

once the fudge cooled i got to work decorating them.
just needed:
-double sided tape
-corner rounder punch
-tape measure
-paper trimmer
-scrap paper
-pen
-heart punch
i cut a bunch of strips out & taped them around the bottom.
then i cut some paper for the tops & rounded the edges..
and punched out some hearts..
assembled the tops...
i couldn't come up with any cute chocolate or fudge related sayings..
so i just stuck with the above.
lame, i know.
and there ya have it.
i'm contemplating attaching a popsicle stick or plastic spoon for easy eating.
i'm undecided.
what's your thought?

xo-k

ps. i am STILL not done with valentine's day posts. few more coming. :)

  5. OMG! This is such a great idea! Your recipe is MY fudge recipe--it never fails. What attracted me to your post was the title: My Fudgey Little Valentine. Maybe you could use that on your lid? Or something like, "You're a Sweet Heart"? Thanks for the inspiration.
