For Valentine’s Day one year, I wanted to do something special for my boyfriend but I didn’t have much money…
So, I made him a card using an old CD case, construction paper, puff paint from the nearest craft store, and some small springs from old pens. I decorated the front and back covers with words like; “Be Mine” or “Sweet Thang” with puff paint and a heart shaped pipe cleaner with his name in the middle.
The inside (where the disc would usually be) had springs everywhere that were hot glued to the surface and different color and size hearts on top, so that when he opened it, the hearts would spring out. I wrote a little saying in it too. Along with the card I got him a fake, white rose to symbolize pure, undying love and sprayed some of my perfume on it.
He really liked it! The card may be somewhat difficult to close, but it’s totally worth it.
