It’s not often that I get to share my handsome hubby with the blogging world, so I am going to take full advantage right now!
My sweet husband and I met while I was teaching first grade and he was doing real estate in Utah. Instead of asking me out, my husband hired me to do secretarial work for his business over the summer. I started work on Monday, and we started dating on Friday! We were engaged by the end of the summer.
We were married in the Denver Temple. Just a few short months later, handsome hubby graduated and got a job in medical sales that brought us back to my home in Denver. Four years later, we now have 1 sweet little boy.
I don’t know who said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but it seems to be pretty accurate in our marriage! Handsome hubby loves to eat! So I grabbed some of his favorite candy bars and made an arsenal of candy bar love notes! This way, I can grab one and stuff it in his suit case for him to discover later on. It’s a sweet (literally!) and simple way to show my love for him.
- Candy Bars
- Candy bar love note images (download below)
- Scrapbook paper, cardstock
- Scrapbook supplies (scissors, glue, hole punch, etc.)
- Embellishing supplies (distressing ink, etc.)
I started out by buying several of his favorite candy bars at the grocery store.
I created some little labels using Photoshop. (Look for the download at the bottom!) I made some labels fit a 2″ circle punch. And some were meant to be larger tags. I printed them on scrapbook paper and colored cardstock. (Be sure to cut down your paper to 8.5 x 11 before printing!)
I used my circle punch to cut out the smaller tags.
I mounted them on a scallop and distressed them a bit.
I wrapped the larger candy bars in scrapbook paper and glued them shut. I used a bit of ribbon to add the tags, and I was done!
