My husband hasn’t really gotten into the whole blogging thing, so it’s safe for me to talk about his gift on here. However, if you are reading this now dear hubby, please go away now.
Is he gone? Ok, good.
Last year, my husband made me this necklace. I love the idea of making gifts for each other on this holiday since Christmas was only a couple of months ago, and that’s usually when we buy each other gifts, so I don’t really have a wish list built up by the time Valentine’s Day comes around.
So this year, I made this for Michael.
It’s a framed collection of the states both Michael and I called home growing up, and then the state we call home now. It was super easy to make and just about $40. That includes the 8×10 pictures of the states, as well as the frame, itself. (Because the mat board that came with the frame was white, I also had to buy some black bulletin board paper for the background. I bought it at a teacher store for about $8).
So, first, I cut out the states from the photos I printed from this website.
Then, I marked the general area within each state where we lived with a red heart using a Sharpie.
Finally, I taped the states in place using double stick tape and added the frame.
What do you do for V-day gifts?
