A Little Bit of Valentine's

The bouquet I created my hubby! Find out the easy steps at the bottom!

And because I couldn't resist, he received something from baby too.

 
From a display of things to a path way of love notes on the floor, 
I always manage to go a little overboard with Valentine's. 

Baked some brownies today to go with his scrumptious dinner I'm making as well. 
Unfortunately I have to teach dance so we can't really spend the night together. 

My hunk of a man left me a dozen of these this morning. O-M-G.
These were like heaven and I can tell you that it is very hard not to eat them all at once. 

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!
I hope you have a wonderful day full of love and more! 
My craft for my husband was something that I kind of came up with over the last week. 
I decided I wanted to create a candy bouquet full of gift cards and homemade coupons as well. 
It was super easy and very fun to make!

What You'll Need:
Shish-kabob sticks
Tape
Candy
Gift Cards
A Vase (I used a Mason Jar)
Ribbon
Tissue Paper
Homemade coupons

I originally tried to place a piece of Styrofoam in the bottom of the jar to hold the sticks, 
but in the end it was messy and made it harder to spread the sticks out. The best way was 
to take tons of tissue paper and stuff the bottom. This created somewhat of a ball of paper 
to hold the sticks as you stuck them through. Then you just add your decorative tissue paper and 
make sure some comes out of the top for a pretty look. 

Tape the the sticks to the backs of the candy, gift cards, and coupons. 
I created my coupons on the computer and since I printed them on thin paper I used 
a card stock backing to tape them. 

Arrange the sticks; stick them through paper and make sure it's spread out; and then
add a ribbon. Wa-la. Presto. You're done!  This can be as expensive or inexpensive as you'd like. 

How has your Valentine's been?
xoxo, love you guys
