A Kiss In Your Pocket

Does your loved one run after you for a kiss the second you walk out the door? Do they call you at 1 am begging you to come over and kiss them goodnight? Do they stand on the train platform and blow you kisses 30 minutes after your train already left? If so, then this is the perfect Valentines day gift idea for you!
Introducing a kiss in your pocket.
First, take a picture of yourself blowing a kiss.
Then print a bunch of little pictures and use a red marker to draw one heart on the first picture, two on the second and so on..
Punch holes on the end and tie it together with ribbon. You've just made a kiss flip book!

No longer will your loved one feel clinically depressed when you're away since they'll have your kiss right in their pocket.
Problem solved! ;)

1. I wish I found you four years ago.
2. I wish you blogged about this four years ago.
3. I would have totally used this idea and send this to my boyfriend while still long distance.
4. Because it's so incredibly adorable and cute, I think I will do this idea anyway and hide it in his car when he leaves for classes/work.
5. You are fabulous for coming up with this idea, and all the previous projects you have done. I look forward to more. :)

Hi from Buenos Aires!
I just wanted to share with you ---shhh, still top secret till Sunday --- that I made this for my boyfriend. I had so much fun, it was a great idea. I hope he likes it too!
Cheers,
Natalia

Louisaholly said...

Thank you for the lovely idea - I've just made my little flip book and can't wait to give it away on valentines day!

It was a little bit funny asking the photo man to print out 20 photos of me blowing - when I went to pick them up, I was introduced to his friend as the girl with the funny pictures! So, I guess you have made the photo-shop people smile as well as me and my boyfriend! Thank you x

Saph said...

That is sooo cool! I'll have to make this for my hubby for a "just because I love" you love gift! :)

Great stuff here. The information and the detail were just perfect. I think that your perspective is deep, its just well thought out and really fantastic to see someone who knows how to put these thoughts down so well. Great job on this.

Awesome, this was a really quality site. In theory I'd like to write like this too - taking time and real effort to make a good site... but what can I say... I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get something done.

We certainly adore exactly how it’s simple upon my personal eye and also the truth is well crafted. I’m asking yourself generate an income may be informed each time a brand new publish may be created. I’ve bought for your feed that should have the desired effect! Possess a good day time!
