THIS ONE IS A SWEET WAY TO DECORATE A PLACE FOR DINNER OR STAYING IN TO WATCH A MOVIE.
This product is available on Etsy.com but you could probably make it out of an old book, cookie cutter, steady hands & scissors. Then either glue to some twine (doubled sided to hide the twine of course) or use a sewing machine to sew them together gently…. That’s what this clever person has appeared to of done.

THIS IS AWESOME!
Taken from Pinterest again.
Take a pre made (on the computer or by hand) gift card scratchie base.
Colour generously the areas for scratching with a white wax crayon. Then paint with a silver or gold poster paint. (Let me know if one of you try this!)

DIY MUG CUTENESS!

Pinterest
You will need: Sharpie markers & your choice of mug/ plate/ bowl etc (white will obviously look best) that is oven proof/ microwave proof
Then Bake at 180 Degrees Celcius (350 degrees Fahrenheit for the others) for 30 minutes
Allow to cool completely before wrapping/ washing.

THE BUDGET, BUT AWESOME, ‘BE MINE’ GIFT.
for people like me, mainly my partner but therefore it applies to me, who don’t need to have a huge show of spending to get the message. Something like this would be so appreciated!
You will need: an old ornate deck of cards, red/white paint or paper, glue/double sided tape, hole punch, sharpies, 1 or 2 rings (available at any good craft/ stationary supplier

*Put the cards in which ever order you like making sure the jokers are your cover and end.
*Accurately mark then punch the holes in each card – secure together with your ring/s
*Have a draft list of 52 reasons why you love that person ready
*Make your cover- prep your areas for writing on each card with the paint or paper.
*Carefully use the sharpie to write your list in.
VOILA!
