My collection of washi tape is getting quite large these days so I am always on the lookout for fun craft projects that I can share with you here. As pretty as washi tape can be, there is the issue of it not sticking so well to things for the long haul. For this project I found the perfect solution with the addition of the mod podge! I picked up my cute heart boxes at my local Collage craft store, but you can also find them here on Amazon. Of course you can use any size and shape, and this one is a perfect fit for 3 little truffles. Just follow my step-by-step tutorial below to make this special Valentine’s Day box (of course great for all year round too). Top it with a pretty ribbon that is tied into a perfect bow.
I had a little walk down memory lane shooting this post today. About 5 years ago I worked as the creative for a local chocolate company where I designed the packaging, catalogs, website. . . everything but the chocolate. I remember hunting for a photographer to shoot natural light, (I had only styled photography and had yet to even pick up a camera) but couldn’t find a local photographer who worked that way. I did find a great photographer and we shot some gorgeous chocolate photos. My signature styling trick was to have a bite out of one or more pieces in the photo. I liked the photos to look real rather than too staged. Now, I am that natural light photographer and today it was all about chocolate. Of course I had to take a bite out of one chocolate for the photos. What fun! ~ Lia
