I was inspired by something I saw on Martha Stewart's website.  It was a kid's craft for altering matchbooks and filling them with candy.  I kind of got carried away...  The heart on the top is made of stamped polymer clay with a sparkly doo dad.  Inside of each there's a tiny traditional valentine's day image.  And M&Ms!

These are so sweet, MW. I really like the hearts on top. I need to pull out my poly clay. I'm no good at sculpting but I can stamp!!

Thanks, Lime!  I only used white clay, then painted it after baking.

I love these heart boxes too!  What kind of paint did you use?

Thanks Leslie!  I used Lumiere metallic paints and PearlEx mica powders.

Great way to send a little candy love to someone!  I never think about stamping into clay either, the hearts are so pretty Smiley
