This cute little DIY monogrammed Valentine’s Day chocolate box is for my eldest daughter’s teacher. As I was picking up cards for my daughter to give out to her classmates, I grabbed a rather generic looking box of chocolates for the teacher because teachers deserve mucho love and appreciation.
I’m really into making monogrammed things lately, so I thought it would be fun to personalize the box of chocolates with decorations and the teacher’s initial. It was super easy to do and aside from needing a heart shaped box of chocolates you could probably make this with supplies you already have laying around.
- A heart shaped box of chocolates
- Construction paper or any other kind of colorful decorative paper
- Glue (bonus if you have glitter glue)
- A printed out letter (for the monogram part or you could draw one too)
- Use your heart shaped box of chocolates to trace a heart on a colored piece of paper, cut the heart out and glue it directly onto the top of the box of chocolates.
- Add any kind of stickers or decorations that you have to the top of the paper you just glued on to the box of chocolates. I happened to have a foam apple so I stuck it on there.
- Using a computer and printer, print out the initial of your choice in a large enough size so that you can glue it wherever you want on the box of chocolates. Alternately, you could just use a marker and hand draw a letter, cut it out and glue it to the candy box.
- Add any finishing touches you like and let it dry before gifting it.
If you are crafty, I’m sure you can get all fancy with it. We kept it pretty simple, but I have a feeling my daughter will be adding some more embellishments before she gives it to her teacher.
