Thanks to the discount V-Day goodies at a local drug store (CVS to be exact), I found some nifty take out boxes that inspired the crap out of me. And hopefully will make a nice gift for a friend.

First off, the box that started it all. In it's original form.



After a nice coat of green paint, kanji and acrylic sealer.
love and..

prosperity.



Then, to one of the hardest parts of the gift, the sculpey fortune cookie.




So far that's all I have done. I'm working on origami orchids as well as felt sushi and a few other things to go inside. I just hope he enjoys it.

Those are soo cool! Where did you get the boxes? Are they acctual take out containers, or did you buy them somewhere?

*oops, Choco didn't read carefully... sorry, I'm kinda sick right now...*

Aw. Why thank you all. Soon the rest will be finished, as soon as I get more time off from work.

Cute, for Valentine's Day I made red fortune cookies out of foam with a Valentiney fortune inside.  Now if only I had a cool box like that... Nice job!

I have to say that trying to put the fortune into the cookie was pretty interesting. I used lots of random tools like a tiny crochet needle, long hemos and tweezers. Next time, I need to make bigger spaces for easier access.
