Bottle Valentine

Here is another idea featured in the February Country Home magazine. Use an empty bottle and cork to create a "message in a bottle" valentine! I put paper hearts in first (punched out with a heart shape hole punch) and then wrote my note on a piece of parchment looking paper. I rolled it up and tied it with a bow. I left one end of the bow really long to draw it out through the top so the note isn't too hard to get out. Put a cork in and tie a tag on the outside! This will be David's surprise Valentine at work this year!
