Be My "Bloody" Valentine Candy Box

I am super excited to share with you today my Be My "Bloody" Valentine Candy Box with a little surprise inside. This is for sure not your traditional box of chocolates for a traditional Valentine. Since my favorite show, "The Walking Dead" comes back on tonight I just had to pay tribute to it. So I created a triangle candy box, decorated it with a Valentine flare and some "blood splatter." Then I hit the kitchen and made some candy coated Oreo brains for the surprise inside.

I used these items to create the Candy Box (ALL of which have been in my stash for quite some time):

  • Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut cartridge - triangle candy box cut at 9 1/4
  • Cake Basics Cricut cartridge - heart cut at 9 1 /2
  • Wild Card Cricut cartridge - Be my Valentine
  • red lace
  • red craft paint - "blood splatter"
  • Glossy Accents

I used these items to create the surprise inside (ALL of which I had on hand too):
  • Wilton Cookie Candy Mold
  • Oreo cookies
  • Wilton Candy Melts - red, pink and white
I am entering my Be My "Bloody" Valentine Candy Box in the following challenges:
