I posted a while ago in this thread when i was making my boyfriends '50 reasons' book
(which is here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75480.0
Firstly i'd like to thank everyone that's reading. You guys are amazing, and always inspire me, and support each others ideas and creations. I think it's so very wonderful. We're so lucky to have Craftster!!! YAY!
Ok, as well as the '50 reasons' book, i bought a velvety red heart box to put the other things in.
I also made.......
Half of my heart. My boy lives about 200 miles away, and i always say that when he leaves he takes a bit of my heart with him. (Luckily, he's as soppy as i am!)
The box has a label which says:"This is a very special gift, that you can never see.
The reason it's so special is it's just for you from me.
Whenever you are lonely, or you're feeling blue,
You only have to hold this gift to know i think of you.
You never can unwrap it.
Please keep the ribbon tied.
Just get this box, and hold it close,
It's filled with love inside."
This is a little poem i found on here. I'm sorry, but i can't remember who posted it, but thank you. It's perfect
I filled this box up (even tho he's not supposed to look) with little scraps of paper that say i love you etc, and small heart sequins.
Oh, and a lil scented cake
All of these are in the heart box with lots of pins/badges and a little sheet of heart stickers.
The box i covered in "things that go together" (in my other post) got filled with red, white and pink candy
And here they are all together with the 50 Reasons, book.
Please feel free to use any of the ideas, and just send me a message if you want the list of 'Things that go together.' I'll send them to you.
It's things like:
fish and chips, adam and eve, tom and jerry, horse and carriage etc EDIT:
We're always saying we're going to run away and live in Iceland.
My neighbour went to Iceland last year, and i asked her to bring me back a rock. She did, and i found it the other day, so i'm adding that too, and saying that one day we'll both take the rock home again.
Hahaha, omg, sooooo sickly i know!
