Geeky Valentine candy
Nothing says Valentine’s Day like heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, and I like to surprise my Honey with several of the tiny boxes, which I’ll tuck in his bag, truck, or around the house. They are inexpensive and it’s so fun to get a bunch of little gifts all day. However, I don’t always like the way the little boxes are decorated in the store, so this year I decided to make my own design.
We live in a pretty geeky household, so I figured I’d go with a computer-themed design. I started with an old motherboard and some keys from a keyboard. Then I grabbed my classic embossing label maker (seriously, how cool are these things?) and cranked out some words. I put them all together to say “You hold the keys to my heart”. I took a photo of the finished piece, and of course I’m going to share it with you in a handy-dandy download!
After you download our template, just print it into a sheet of sticker paper and grab a mini box of chocolates.
Peel the backing off the sticker sheet. Hold the lid of the box and the sticker sheet up to the light to help you center the design on the box, then press lightly into place.
Put the piece on the table and press more firmly, to make sure the sticker has good contact all over the lid. Then use some scissors to trim away the excess sticker.
Just put the lid back on the box and that’s it. Can’t get much easier than that, right?
What a quick way to turn an ordinary box of chocolates into a cool gift for the computer geek in your life.
