Homemade Valentine's Day Gift!

Hey everyone! So I'm gonna keep this intro short and sweet! So valentine's day is tomorrow and this is what I have made Sam for it. I got this idea from Lauren Conrad's website, you can see her original post here. So basically we are making a stick of dynamite for our loved ones! And here is how to do it... 

You will need:
Red Tissue Paper
3 Rolo Packets
2 Black Pipe Cleaners

Step 1: Lay out a piece of your red tissue paper

Step 2:  Cut the sheet in half

Step 3: Place the packet of Rolos at the bottom of the tissue paper and roll it up until the other end of the paper..

Step 4: Sellotape the edges of the paper together
It should look like this..

Step 5: Cut of the edges of the paper

Step 6: It should look like this, you should be able to see the gold wrapping

Step 7: Place the three finished packets together and sellotape to keep them in place

Step 8: Tie one of the pipe cleaners around the three and knot at the front.
Step 9: Cut the other pipe cleaner and place in between the three packets, then cut the top of this piece so it looks like a fuse

Step 10:  Attach a message! I went for 'U DA BOMB!'. We aren't a cheesy couple ha!

So that is the valentine's day bomb! I love Lauren Conrad's site for cute ideas like this. Makes occasions like valentine's day just a little bit more personal and unique.

Have you got your loved ones a gift for valentine's day!?
Let us know and have a great day!

Till next time,
