Valentines idea's

Whilst there is no one else in the house (rare moment!) i have finished off MR G's Valentine's pressies and gift bag.

Take a peek at what i have made him.  First of all this cute idea that came to me earlier.  I bought this wooden box to make into a box to keep a first lock of hair in but the lid doesn't grip on so it isn't suitable.  I bought a packet of rolo's and was going to stick the last one on a piece of card but thought this was a miles better way of giving it...

 I stuck a wooden heart (from John Lewis) on top of the box just to finish it off.

 This next pressie i love.  Mr G isn't a big photo guy and doesn't have much decoration on his desk at work but i thought this was romantic but not too soppy at the same time.  I printed the words straight onto fabric by running the fabric straight through my printer.  I just cut an A4 piece of fabric and stuck it to a piece of A4 paper then printed as usual.
 I thought it would be nice to vamp up a boring brown sandwich bag.  I'm not one for boring wrapping paper and love how this has turned out.
 How cute is the envelope sticker i used in the centre.  The background paper i used is Papermania from their Christmas range.
Here it is with all his pressies in.  The bag also contains Jeremy and these.  Now i just need to make his card!!
