Altered Prima flower tube container!

Hello everyone! 
Sharing with you all today a cute little altered tube, this is a 
Wild Orchid Crafts project share!! 
I made these for my mom and dad! They LOVE chocolates! My mom especially.....she's a health freak but has a weakness for the chocolates...almost all girls do right?? LoL! 
When she comes over she always opens drawers and looks in my pantry and says "No tienes un chocolatito por alli"? Which means, "Do you have any chocolate laying around"? :) She's so cute! She cracks me up! 
So anyhow, I recycled these little Prima Essentials tube....the larger ones! I had like 5 of them from when I made my cameo kits! I threw them away until I thought about Valentine's being just around the corner and they could be filled with some goodies!! 

This is what they look like before....


They look better filled with the flowers!...or chocolates right?
Here they are altered with designer paper and WOC!!
I tried to go girly with my moms and went more darker with my dads...I used black and red then a pop of white with my pops treat tube! I used K and Company's Madeline paper collection and some red Bazzil cardstock that I clear embossed a heart stamp randomly on it for the Valentine's theme!


I explain this and more on my video:
