Candy boxes


I made these candy boxes today for some friends that are coming over to my house this weekend.  I know they will like it since there will be chocolates in them and who doesn't like chocolate right!  I had no idea how I was going to decorate the top of the boxes but came out with these and hope it looks okay.  I used the paper that was in my scraps box because I knew I could put them to good use one day.  Trying to use up the scraps feels like it's never ending because I always end up making more scraps again and again.     
The boxes are 3" x 3" square and a little over an inch high.

These are so cute! I love how you flip up the top to reveal the yumminess inside! Would you mind sharing how you made these? I just discovered your blog from Teri's blog (I think it was hers...) and I just had to go back and see ALL your posts! I love your work. And your crochet flowers are gorgeous. I love crochet flowers and I really want to learn to make some, but I have NO experience and wouldn't even know where to start! Anyway, fabulous blog and I will be back!
