For your valentine
Chocolate and red roses are such a great combo!

Giving a gift can mean much more than handing someone a material object. It can be a way to strengthen relationships, especially when the gift is thoughtful and includes personal touches.

  • How to make a chocolate. Valentine's Day Treat - Step 1
    Step 1

    Get a large pan, and boil some water. Put a smaller pan into the larger pan, and put your chocolate inside. Stir constantly until the chocolate melts. You don't need to add anything, it will melt smoothly on it's own. This works well because the chocolate isn't on direct heat.

    Most roses are edible but as with all flowers you should wash them well and avoid any that have been sprayed with chemical pesticides. If in doubt, don't eat them.

    Take your rose and remove all petals, rinse the rose petals and dry them by using a piece of paper towl.

    Dip the petals in the chocolate one by one by using tweezers and put them on a plate.

    THE GIFT BOX:

    Use heavy paper (220gram)
    the measurements of the box is 10 x 7 x 3.5

    Cut the box out on the solid lines and fold on the dotted lines. You will have only one tab that you will need to glue or tape.

    Since my link doesn't work anymore I found a new box on this site http://www.homemade-gifts-made-easy.com you can either go to the site or download the PDF file above. I think this box is even prettier than mine!

  • Step 4

    If you want to make a more personal or decorative box just put things like a picture of you and your valentine under the photo copier and copy it onto the paper. (make sure you copy it onto the right side)

    I copied some rose petals and my favourite page of Pride and Prejudice.

Hey eve,
Ik heb deze how-to-do vernoemd in mijn bonbonsdoos how-to-do, omdat ik hier gelezen had over het idee om een design te zoeken via google.
Ik wou je natuurlijk wel even de credits daarvoor geven! Ik wacht nog wel op approval, dus misschien komt ie niet eens on-line, haha maar als ik het bericht nu niet stuur vergeet ik het straks! fijn weekend.
groetjes jolanda

The rose petals give the chocolate a sweeter taste. Most roses are edible but as with all flowers you should wash them well and avoid any that have been sprayed with chemical pesticides. If in doubt, don't eat them.

don't you need to use organic roses?
i heard from somewhere that it may not be safe to use farmer's or florist's roses but those specifically for eating.
let me know! Happy

I've tried eating rose petals, they don't taste as good as the roses smell but it's more the symbolism that's good about it Happy Plus they're covered in chocolate so I expect that's what you taste mostly. Awesome box, thanks for the idea!
