Y’all, I am obsessed with this idea. I have always had an obsession with a box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day, it’s so Iconic. I did a chocolate tag collaboration with Lauren Glass this year and last year a fun chocolate box Advent calendar.
Last year for the girls classes I did pencils, which was so fun and easy. On a Home Goods run I found these mini cupcake lines for $4 a bought them just because. I thought this would be the perfect way use them. I created mini surprise balls for each kid in the class, and made them look like a chocolate. Best part, everything I bought on Amazon.
I started with a heart eraser and began wrapping the crepe paper. I ordered a few colors but this brown one is best because it is the same on both sides and it came with a lot. I can make about 7 chocolates out of one roll that pack comes with four rolls. When you wrap the paper, fold it in half long ways to not have edges. I rolled for a while then added a sticker, then a little more and added a temporary tattoo.
Once the chocolates are done you can seal with a glue stick or double sided tape, I garnished with some confetti and glued into the cupcake liner. I added a little flag that says love, Denver and that there are 3 little prizes inside.
They are a bit time consuming, but I know the kids are going to have a blast opening them up- it really gives a whole new meaning to “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get“.
Tag me if you make them, I cannot wait to see!
