Make this Easy and Cute Valentine Pink and Red DIY Candy Gift Box

I was at Michaels a bit ago and found this cool box in the scrapbooking and papercrafting department.  I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with it, but I knew I needed it. 😉  I finally figured it out…it was destined to be a cute DIY Valentine gift for friends, teachers, neighbors or that special someone.

All those great little compartments were begging to be filled to the brim with pink and red candies of every variety.  A little twist on a box of chocolates.

I removed a few of the compartments to fit in those glossy, beautiful rock candy sticks.  I filled the rest of the boxes with a mix of the following:

Pink Gumballs

Red Hershey’s Kisses

Pink Pearlized Sixlets

Red Spree Candies

Pink Peppermints

Valentine Mix M and Ms

The clear lid allows all of those candies to shine.

I picked up some cute pink canvas tags at Michaels too, the perfect touch with the red and white twine all wrapped up.

If you are feeling inspired to put something similar together, you can find candy in every shape size and color (organized by color!) at Party City.  If you haven;t been there lately, they have a whole candy section organized by color and it is my happy place. 😉

Don’t forget to check ALL the aisles of the craft store.  You never know what you’ll find and how to can re-purpose it to become something fun! 🙂

Happy crafting!

  1. Hi 🙂
    I’m searching for that box at Michaels but I can’t find it.
    Who is it made by or do you have a sku number for it?
    Thanks so much,

    • Hi Lisa! I unfortunately don’t have a sku number, I bought it last year, but it is made by Tim Holtz. A fun clear divided plastic box like from the jewelry/bead section would be cute too if you are having a hard time finding the other box. 🙂
