For My Sweetheart, a diy Valentine's Pillowbox


For Valentine's Day, the best way to a man's heart is to over-extend his waistline. Lavish that tummy with chocolates, macarons and champagne (or perhaps beer) and he'll be all yours. The only dilema is to know when to stop your honey bun's waist developing into a muffin top

Whip-Up blog has asked me to develop a diy Valentines project; a sweetheart pillow box to download and print. Package little organic Chocolate Hearts from Lindsay & Edmunds Handmade Organic Chocolates or Berry Macarons from Cupcakes on Pitt with a glass of Champagne and a side of Michael Buble. Buble, did I really say that? Too smulchy? Probably, but you get the picture (Guess who we're off to see on Valentine's Day? He sings, he's Canadian, he suits-up and does a mean version of 'Mack the Knife')
