I’m a sap. I’m a sucker for a good story, a sweet gesture; a surprise. I love that unexpected bouquet of dandelions. I save ticket stubs, frame lists or special notes. My family is used to getting sappy, sentimental gifts from me. Here’s something I did for my husband many years ago.
This gift is so simple and it costs just pennies. No instructions, no tutorial needed, just a bit of time, a little thinking, writing, cutting and gluing is what you need to give a box of love.
Here is mine. The outside heart is labeled ‘Some of the Things I Love About Buzz’ (my hubby).
I took it off of his desk to show it to you.
Let’s look inside. It’s filled with paper hearts. On each one I wrote one thing I love about my husband. Some are silly, lots are sappy; all are meaningful.
I put in 32 hearts. You can make as many as you want to.
Want to see them a bit closer? Nothing fancy, just the way he is and those everyday things he does.
Love isn’t diamonds, bouquets of roses, or fancy dinners…it’s what’s in the box.
I have some things to add...
