All of this work just because they don't sell dark Lindt truffles in a heart-shaped box!
But my boy is worth it Smiley

I'm on quite a budget, so I found a heart-shaped box at the dollar store, and some one dollar Valentine's stickers at Jo Ann's, grabbed some glue and some scrapbook paper and his favorite truffles and went all out!

Here are the contents, decorated inside and out:

It's very very last minute, hence the sloppiness =/
But each chocolate is filled with the reasons I love him Smiley

Oh and here's the before.
Not bad, but he's not that into pink and purple.

It's my very very first post so thanks for looking!!
Happy Valentine's Day!
