If you're cooking a special valentine meal at home how about dressing the table with some crackers. The beauty of making your own is you decide what the gift inside should be.
I have used some ultra sticky red line double sided tape along the edge and covered it with gold glitter. Using a heart shaped punch I have cut out three shapes from double sided sticky sheet and stuck them on at regular intervals. These hearts are covered with micro beads.
I found that rolling the cracker around a rolling pin helped curve the card without getting any creases in it. I sealed the cracker by using curling ribbon in red and gold.
The photograph doesn't really show the sparkle very well but I'm sure it will look great in candle light!
