EXTRA CREDIT: Tokens of Confection {Martha Stewart Living}

Mvalentines-day-06-rectangular-candy-boxes-0464-d111638-001The February issue of Martha Stewart Living is brimming with great inspiration. I love pretty packages and this story on turning ordinary chocolates into a special personalized gift with beautiful and unique packaging is right up my alley. Wood grain boxes are made by covering plain boxes with wood veneer and then stenciling them. A great way to package up treats without a heart or doily in sight.

Martha Stewart Foil Candy WrappersUse craft paper punches to turn ordinary chocolate bars into something special. Just remove the outer wrapper and let the inner foil show through your paper cut outs. You instantly turn a grocery store chocolate into one-of-a-kind special chocolate bar.
