Heart Shaped Beaded Boxes

Valentine’s Day isn’t the only holiday swiftly sneaking up on us – Mardi Gras will also be here before you know it!  This year Fat Tuesday falls on February 12th, just before cupid declares open season on hearts.  Aunt Peaches decided that a mashup of the two days was in order, resulting in what she aptly calls a “Jambalaya Box.”  (If you’ve been looking for an excuse to buy yourself a heart-shaped box of chocolates and devour the whole thing…  Here ya go.)  [how to make a Mardi Gras heart box]
