Ask the Crafts Dept. : Sourcing Valentine Boxes

Posted by

Patricia asks:

Dear Crafts Department,
Could you give me manufacturers/suppliers of Valentine's Day confectionery boxes?  Thanks very much!

Happy to oblige! Here are few good online sources for heart shaped candy boxes:

Box and Wrap has vintage looking red foil boxes, but aslo silver and gold which can be hard to find. SugarCraft has quite a few options in various sizes. On the fancier end, D. Blumchen has victorian inspired papier-mache boxes and nice red foil hearts in several sizes.

A few years back I helped Martha with her February column, about making large Valentine boxes filled will lots of different kinds of special sweets.


We sourced some really great suppliers of beautiful candy and baking cups in different colors and patterns. They're not expensive and so pretty, in any kind of box. Viking Importing and Novacart both carry many different styles and sizes, in addition to many other types of packaging... Hope this is helpful, and that your holiday is very sweet!

  • Thank you thank you!

  • Good post, thank for that useful information.

  • This makes me think. This would be a great thing to re-use old valentine's day candy boxes you've received. Instead of throwing them out, give the box to someone else with something tasty in it next year.

  • Hi Kristen,
    Big fan of your blogging/posts/crafts/EVERYTHING you share with the crafty crew community. So THANKS! Am wondering if you have any suggestions for ecommerce sites with buttons!? I am looking for larger-ish, military inspired, tarnished gold buttons to use to replace the buttons on a Mike & Chris leather jacket i own. Any ideas of sites online I should check out? Thanks! xx alexis
