Hey everyone! It’s been a whirlwind of a weekend around here! My hubs and I have been celebrating our anniversary….we’ll be married 26 years on Valentines Day!
Friday I received a beautiful bouquet of pink roses…just lovely! I wanted to do something special for my honey too, but I couldn’t exactly buy him flowers. SO, I decided to do something I knew he’d really like.
This would be a great idea for any man on your list.
First I took the carton to his favorite soda, which happens to be ALE81…it’s a soda made just in KY and he loves it!
Then I decided to gather up some yummy stuff……
All his favorite things….
I got all his favorite candy bars in the snack sizes….a buck each at the Dollar Tree….
I also picked up some craft supplies like: Chenille pipe cleaners in red…
Tissue paper, gift bag shreds, and some sticks. Yes, I said sticks! I tried to find some wooden skewers, but they didn’t have any, so I got these decorative sticks instead…figured they’d do the same job…..
I cut down some of the sticks in different lengths and then started taping all those yummy snacks to the sticks like this…..
Then I started inserting the sticks down into some styrofoam I stuck down in the carton. See….
I continued to stick in his snacks at different heights…..
After I got all the snacks in place, I wanted to add something for filler. I took the chenille pipe cleaners and wrapped them around the handle of a wooden spoon. I took them off, stretched them out a smidge and added them to my manly bouquet!
Can you see him hiding in there? I added about 6 to the whole thing…
Then I stuck in some gift wrapping tissue into the back of the carton, like this…..
I also used some of the gift wrapping shreds to fill in some empty spots here and there.
I added a balloon to the top….
and there ya have it…
ALL DONE! A guy gift that any man is gonna love!
Hope you guys have a wonderful Valentines Day!
