Fusion Card Challenge - January 30th

It's Thursday and time for another Fusion Card Challenge!  We had so many inspiring entries for the last challenge - I can't wait to see what you all do this week!! It's a heart theme just in time for February 14th!  Or you can be inspired by red and white, or just the sketch!
I just love making treat boxes and Valentine's Day is a perfect time for them!  Everyone loves a little treat on Valentine's Day - even the guys!   So I dressed up a tool box cut file to get the job done!  I was inspired by the colors and images as well as the sketch this week.
The tool box cut file is from the Silhouette Shop. It's 4" wide  x 2 1/4" deep x 3 1/4" high  I decorated it with hearts and a sentiment from the stamp set, My Heart, by Waltzingmouse - do you see the sketch in the layout of the hearts??!!
And, yes, those are chocolate tools in my little tool box.  I made them using a chocolate mold I found on Amazon.
 
I layered red wood grain washi tape and ruler twill onto the base of the tool box.  I adhered punched hearts on the ends of the 'wood grain' handle.  The hearts were stamped and layered onto the front of the tool box with foam dots. 

I'm also entering this in
the City Crafter challenge -  create a project for Valentine's Day
The Pink Elephant Challenge - Theme: Love
Addicted to Stamps and More - photo inspiration (box of candy hearts)
