There's no better way to celebrate a 16 year anniversary than with chocolate! My husband and I celebrated our 16th anniversary and these were the decadent favors for our guests.

plantable-hearts-3

When you order heart-shaped tags, they come on a carrier sheet with each tag punched and ready to pop out. After you pop them out, you have not only tags, but the carrier sheet with a bunch of heart-shaped holes in it. There must be something you can do with this. After mulling it over for a while, I remembered the Christmas cards I made last year with my own homemade paper. I had made a paper rectangle mold to use as a guide so all the pieces of homemade paper were the same. That’s when I … [Read more...]
