I'm back with a page share featuring a Christmas photo. Yes, Christmas in February!
|The first Instax picture that I've scrapbooked. (My favourite Christmas present!)|
|I decided to do a date night/snack theme.|
A snuggie, beef jerky, turtles, gum, chips, cashews, a few little Valentine's themed toysand games, Werthers, Hershey's kisses, Godiva chocolates, Lindor chocolate, 3 movies, sparkling apple juice with cheesy Valentine glasses, popcorn, kinder surprises, mimi eggs, and some Valentine themed chocolate. A bunch of his favourite things :)
|A closeup of the Hot Tamale Valentine.|
I am still going to make a box for him to keep all of the Valentines in. Any ideas for me?
|I basically spray painted a stick white, then added a tag. So simple and easy! You could also use acrylic paint and a paintbrush to make it even easier.|
|I used a trophy that I purchased at my local dollar store.|
The "cup" is filled with gold foil chocolate money.
|The detail. I couldn't resist using that map paper again. It's fantastic.|
|My boyfriend is from Fulda, Germany and I'm from Ontario, Canada so I added twine between our two birthplaces. :)|
|I bought the mini take out box at Michaels for about $2. They carry all sorts of colours as well!|
|I found the instructions over here. It made it so simple and quick to use their free printable. I LOVE free printables, don't you?|
I did make my "cookies" a bit smaller using the size adjustment on my printer. (Because my box is itty bitty.)
|A medium sized white paper bag filled with cinnamon hearts. (Wow, those things are addicting!)|
|A small glassine pocket with a playing card inside. (there is a message written on the card)|
The clock circle is actually cut from a piece of Prima packaging.
|All tied up.|
I have to say, that "Vintage Whimsy" floral paper by The Girls Paperie might be my all time fave.
|There are 3 layers to the heart and each one folds up over the other. |
I stickled each edge, and added lace to the edges of the sheet music layer.
I added a typewritten sentiment inside, along with some hand cut hearts.
|A mini Valentine spool.|
|I painted the plain wood spool with blue paint then distressed it slightly. I glued one end of the vintage music paper to the spool then wrapped it around.|
The flower is from Prima.
