Thought I'd dip my toes back in the water with something quick and simple: a Valentine's Day craft project I did (obviously awhile ago). Inspired by this incredibly beautiful storefront window that was featured on Design*Sponge, I spread some Valentine cheer of my own with paper rose adorned boxes, filled with some homemade sweet treats.
Scissors + paper + glue gun = surprisingly easy little paper roses!
No one likes an empty box, though - even a pretty one - so I whipped up two Martha confections: chocolate truffles and raspberry financiers.
Mmm, the financiers were so nutty and delicious! I need to make these again.
I experimented with two different types of chocolate for fun, but the real key is the different brands of cocoa powder that - all being different colors - create different color truffles once they are rolled in the powder.
*** I'll try to be better, scouts honor.***
