a valentine for my love

I finished up my Valentine for my hubby this morning and am SO excited to give it to him tomorrow (I had to tell him not to look at my blog today :)). It's a bunch of little goodies put into one card or I guess you could say, a little album. I love it. :)

I cut an 8.5"x11" sheet of Kraft cardstock in half to 5.5"x8.5"and adhered them together (with a 1/2" overlap) so that it was one long sheet of paper. I then scored every 4 inches to create the "pages", and was left with a 1/2" fold to be able to close it up. I attached some baker's twine with an eyelet to also help close it up, and then went to town decorating using different bits and pieces.
I used a paper bag envelope to put a note in, as well as a giftcard. I also put a "book" onto one of the panels and made it a coupon book for different fun things, like cooking or getting carry-out of his fave meal. I perforated each page in the coupon book so he could tear them out to use. 
I of course, had to add some confetti somewhere, so I used a glassine envelope and put in some confetti and a little card.
