Step #3:
Glue a lace doily onto the front of the heart to cover any marks from the original packaging.

Place another doily on the inside of the heart box. I positioned the doily so a section of it would “stick out”.

    So cute, I love faux succulents and these are a nice addition to your lovely heart shaped box. We started a silly tradition of heart-shaped pizzas from Papa Murphy’s a few years back and just yesterday my husband asked me if we’re having “our” pizza again this year 🙂
