Altered Valentine Candy Boxes

I found this cute idea on Cathie Filian's blog. This would be a cute packaging idea if you made small soaps that looked like candies.  But you may want to place a warning inside the box.

For other craft ideas, please visit Cathie's blog at


Mod Podge matte
Folkart paint 413 pink
Folkart Extreme Glitter hologram
Clear heart shaped favor box
Foam paintbrush
Hot glue
Decorative paper
Wood heart
Ribbon or trim
Silk or paper flower


1. Trace the lid of the candy box onto decorative paper. Apply a layer of Mod Podge on to the box lid and to the back of the paper. Place the paper on the lid. Apply more mod podge to the top, press with your finger until smooth. Apply more Mod Podge is necessary. Smooth your brush strokes.

2. Paint the wood heart pink. Topcoat with 3 coats of extreme glitter. Allow to dry.

3. Using hot glue, add trim across the box, the heart to the top of the box and a silk flower and rhinestone to the heart.
