box of chocolates, chocolate, chocolates, doll-size, miniature, miniature food, valentine s day, Valentine's Day
Even though it’s just a couple minutes into February 15th, I still consider it Valentine’s Day since the day is not done. ;)
This is a doll-sized box of real chocolates. They are tiny, less than 1/4″ across!
I made the miniature box for these chocolates from tissue paper, cardboard and decorative paper.
The chocolates were made from chocolate chips and pieces cut from candy bars.
To decorate the tops, I drizzled melted chocolate on with a toothpick.
The papers for the chocolates were made by pressing a tiny circle of tissue paper over the flat end of a pencil.

Oh my goodness, Julia. Between this and the teeny Italian dinner… too cute, not to mention so clever!
I have a friend who loves anything miniature. I’m going to have to share this with her.
Thank you, Alisa! When the little box was opened, a huge scent of chocolate came out. It was funny looking at something so tiny and realizing it was real. The white hearts were made by carving white chocolate chips. I’m glad you liked the Italian dinner. We promptly ate it after I was done photographing it.
