    Default Homemade Valentine's Day Presents/Cards

    Here's an idea I found on the internet this morning.....
    The nice thing about it is it's cute for any age, young or old, or for a man or woman!!

    BOX OF HUGS

    Materials Needed:

    Small Box
    Tissue Paper
    Glue
    paper

    Instructions:
    Cut many approximately 2 inch x 2 inch squares from the tissue paper. Cut out plenty because you will be covering the whole box!
    Water down the glue - 2 parts glue to 1 part water. Lightly brush some glue on the box and stick on the tissue paper squares you cut out. You want them to overlap so you do not see the box. Work in small sections until the entire box is covered. Set aside to dry. Once it is dry, you can lightly brush over your box with the glue and water mixture to make it more durable and shiny; however this is optional.

    Once dry, tie with curly ribbon as you would a wrapped present and attached a gift tag which reads...


    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 are ever feeling blue
    You only have to hold this gift
    And know I'm hugging you.

    You never can unwrap it
    Please leave the ribbon tied
    Just hold the box close to your heart
    It's filled with hugs inside.


    DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY OTHER IDEAS....POST THEM HERE!!!

    I bought one of these when I was a kid so I could have the poem to make more.

    Thanks for sharing this!
