I painted the inside of the boxes black. I own the black paint obviously.
Then I covered the top half with some wrapping paper I bought from Michaels - cost $1.50. The bottom half was covered with a 12x12 piece of scrapbook velvet also from Michaels - the cost with coupon was $1.20.
Next I got some chocolate - nestles white chocolate and milk chocolate morsels at $2.50 each, the organic semi sweets $3.99 and wilton candy melts for $2.50. Needless to say, I still have lots left over for other projects.I molded the chocolates in the shape of little skulls and red hearts - cost $2.50 for the heart mold - I already had the skull mold and the white mini muffin papers.
I added a bow I got at Target after Christmas (about $1) and viola - candy box for about $15.20.
