Here is the gift I gave DH for Valentine's Day today. The flowers are made from Big Blossom with much kissing involved! The glorious green leaves help me complete the most recent WT Challenge. There is florist green stuff at the bottom of the flower pot. Then I put a circle of cardstock and filled up the pot with M&M, Peanut M&Ms and sour gummy worms. The stems are skewers covered with florist tape. I cut 2 slits into each leaf and put the skewer through. I pushed the pointed end of the skewers through the candy, through the CS and into the floral green stuff. This was really fun and I could nibble on Chocolate while I worked!

OH my! This is so sweet! What a great Valentine gift! I hope your DH is as sweet as this gift is and that your gift is equally wonderful. This is a great idea that would be lots of fun to do. I will definitely be making a note of this one for next year's workshops. Thanks for sharing!
