A bit more Love

I got some perfume for Christmas.....and as soon as I saw the sturdy heart box it came in......I knew it would be a future 'altering' project......just perfect for Valentine's Day.
The box has been covered with some dark pink card and 'love' paper.......some die cut hearts and a wooden heart added.
And a little bunch of roses in one corner

The sides were decorated with the same paper......some ribbon........and a heart with a couple more of the roses........sorry, I found it impossible to correct the awful colour on this last photo!!

This afternoon I've been busy in the kitchen.......making some goodies to go in the box........but they need a final touch.......so you'll have to come back tomorrow if you want to see them!!!
And some challenges....Cute Card Thursday want 'hearts and flowers', Dutch Dare want 'love is in the air', Craft, Secret Crafter and Everybody Art Challenge want 'Valentines', Creative Inspirations want red,pink and white and Simon Says wants 'anything but a card'.
