Valentine Swaps

I found a couple Valentine swaps to do.
The first is The Sweet Vintage Candy Box Swap. We're supposed to take a candy box, decorate it and then fill it with goodies. Here's what my candy box started out as:
My original thought was to just take of the ribbon and decorate the red fabric top, but then I got to thinking. So I tore off the top and decorated the flat top of the box. I finished it Tuesday evening, using a process that I believe is becoming my signature look. Everytime I look at it, it makes me smile, so it must be good. I'm still in the process of filling it. Once, I've gotten word that my partner's received it (after I mail it, of course), I'll show you what I did.
The second swap is the 2013 Valentine Swap, we are supposed to make something with a heart on it. I've decided to sew something. I'll show you that one later, too.
