February Display

Hi Guys,

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted a display. It’s been crazy, so I’ve been reusing older displays from last year. BUT I have a new one for you today. I think of February and my mind immediately goes to love and chocolate.

Here’s a fun and fairly easy display that plays off the Forest Gump line, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know which one you’re gonna get.” Substitute “life” for “books” and ta-da!

I did my boarder in die cut hearts and I created my own 3D box of chocolates. The box of chocolates took a little bit of time. I created my hear bottom out of construction paper and then I cut two inch strips of the same paper and painstakingly taped them to the bottom to form a box-like shape. My “chocolates” are mini cupcake holders that I glued. I wanted to add different color brown tissue paper to the mini cupcake holders but I was afraid my glue wouldn’t hold and the whole thing would be too heavy. If anyone thinks of a good way to do this, let me know.

And that’s about it. Not too difficult. Boy do I love 3D displays!

That’s all for now!
