Hogs and Kisses

Hello and Happy Thursday!!
Today I have a cute little project to share with you.
Yesterday was my 14th Anniversary.
Since I have been laid up with my foot surgery,
I was unable to shop to get something for my hubby.
I decided to make him a yummy box of treats!!
My inspiration for this project was
the cute little KISS die from
Chocolate Greetings Die and Stamp set.

I started with a box that I recycled.
This box was perfect for what I had in mind.
It was a black box with a red lid.
I just needed to decorate it.



My cute little HOG is a morphed character!!
The head is from Animal Kingdom and
her body is from Teddy Bear Parade.
Her cute little face is from
Peachy Keen's Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed.
I attached the head with an Action Wobble.


My HOG is hugging a chocolate kiss that I cut
from a foil paper that I have had for ages
and have never used!!  I crumbled it up
a bit to give it the look of a real kiss!!
The flags and sentiments are from
the same set.


This sentiment is from Just Because Cards
and the Hearts are from My Creative Time

I finished my bos off my added some
My Craft Spot crinkle ribbon around the
edge of the box.


And here is a picture of the inside!!
I covered the inside with some red tissue paper.
I made my hubby some yummy chocolate
covered strawberriesand chocolate brownie
cake pops!!  This was the first time I ever
made anything like this. I had bought a cake pop
maker almost a year ago and have never used it!! 
 I made my brownie cake pops with a
boxed chocolate  cake mix and a can of
canned pumpkin.  I added some chopped
 pecans for crunch.  I popped the batter into my
cake pop maker and they came out almost
perfect on the first try!!  I the chocolate coating for
 both the strawberries and cake pops waas a whole
different  I ruined the first two batches
but the 3rd time was a charm!!
I was really proud of my little treat box
and my husband loved it!!
Now my son wants me to make one
for his "girlfriend" for Valentine's Day
but he already paid $30.00 and ordered
them online.  Next time he will
know to ask mom first!!

I will be entering this project in the following challenges:
