Love is in the air!!

Me and Mr G are going on a romantic night away tomorrow to Nunsmere Hall in Cheshire and i can hardly contain my excitement.  This combined with browsing lots of blogs with valentines themes got me thinking about little Valentines makes i can do. I thought that given Valentine's day is on a Monday this year i could do some little surprise treats to go in Mr G's packed lunch.  Here's my first attempt...

 These are chocolates wrapped in heart paper with embellishments added then i popped them in a cellophane bag and made a co-ordinating header out of the same scrapbook paper.
At the moment i am addicted to decorating tin cans.  I thought i would have a go at doing a love themed set that i can use to present hubby's pressies in rather than a bag.  The little tin can was a weightwatchers tuna tin and the large one was a tin of peas!.  I am going to make a silver keyring using silver clay which will fit in the small tin nicely.  I'll probably fill the large tin with homemade choccies.If you want instructions for making the embellished tins see my previous post here
