Sweets for Your Sweetie

I've been making lots of Valentines Day projects lately! My daughter asked me to make some of these candy boxes to give to friends/coworkers at school. This box is my favorite - lots of PINK (including the sweet digi paper) and this adorable little Louie from the Louie Love Set (DigiStamp Boutique).

Supplies: Louie Love Set (DSB), Heartfelt paper set (DSB), pink cs (HL), Copics, white grossgrain ribbon (Bags and Bows), Copics, mini-binder clips (Walmart)

Here's a close up of the little guy. I used E41, E42 and E43 Copic markers and left some of the area white. (I don't have a true off white Copic yet - they're all too dark/yellow/brown.) I used short strokes to try to give the feeling of fur.

I'm entering my project into the following challenges:
CMC Copic Challenge - Texture (fur)
Inky Chicks - Valentine or Anniversary
Paper Crafting Journey - Love
Charisma Cardz - Love
Milk Coffee Challenge - Valentine
Oozak - Anything Goes with favorite colors (pink!)
Love to Create - Feelin' the Love

Here is a group shot of all 6.

If you're a regular visitor to my blog, no doubt you've seen these candy boxes before. However, if you're new and would like to try your hand at making some of your own, check out my tutorial: Milk Carton Boxes. These boxes are truly the easiest 3d paper project I've ever made.
