My husband and I just celebrated our first wedding anniversary. Like most couples just starting out, we're trying to save money for our future. So we decided to not go crazy and spend a lot of money on gifts for each other.
He carries Tums and Aspirin in an Altoids tin to work everyday in his lunch box and I thought it was time he get a fannish upgrade. We've really fallen in love with Adventure Time after marathoning it a few months back. He's got a background on his computer that I thought would be easy to translate into an embroidery piece, I was just waiting to see what it wanted to be put onto.
Since I already had an altoids tin, sandpaper, paint, brushes, mod podge, threads, and a needle, all I needed to complete this project was the felt. So I made this cute little gift for less than $2! (I think that's what made him happiest, my frugal, frugal man.)
Oh, and scroll down to see what he made me. He stuck with the traditional first anniversary theme of paper. I love them so much. Thanks husband!
