Upcycle a Chocolate Box
I have a couple of Valentine’s Day TV segments coming up and weeks and weeks ago, I was asked to submit project ideas to all of the TV shows that wanted to book it to pre-approve the ideas. So, on January 2nd, just back from the holiday break, here I am already thinking Valentine’s Day.
One idea from my book Simply Green Giving that I love that, well, not a single TV producer liked was this one: upcycle a nice chocolate box into a surprise treat jewelry box.
I thought this was a nice idea to give to someone who loves jewelry or to a small child. So, when they think they are just getting another ho-hum box of chocolates, instead they find a selection of vintage rings, charms, earrings and more you’ve collected for them.
For a small child, a mom could even raid her own jewelry box and just fill it with unwanted costume pieces so a little girl could play dress up? Or you could leave all the chocolate inside and have the middle piece have a surprise engagement ring.
Well, if not TV show will let me share this idea (but not to worry, there are 10 other great ideas coming to the Today Show on Feb 10th and on Access Hollywood on Feb 14th), then I’ll post it here on my blog where…. oh, yes, that’s right…. the person who decides what goes on this blog is just me!
