Happy Anniversary Gift Set

Aren't those two love birds adorable? I think so because they are my sweet parents-in-law Dorothy & Shelby Jones! Tomorrow they'll be celebrating 49 years of wedded bliss. We're having a family dinner tonight to mark the occasion, and I thought it would be fun to create a special gift set just for them. My mother-in-law LOVES chocolate covered pecans, so some yummy double dipped chocolates from Stephen Libs will be the perfect treat! Chocolate covered peanuts are a favorite of the groom, so I got a bag of each.

I decided to create a custom gift bag using one of their wedding photos. I simply uploaded the photo to picnik to add the text, printed it out on A Muse shimmer cardstock, matted the trimmed photo with black shimmer cardstock and adhered it to the center of a red gift bag. Gorgeous metallic gold mesh and gold elastic fringed ribbon from May Arts add a touch of glitz!

I'm sure they'll share the candy, but just in case I printed out a little individual photo of each of them, matted them in shimmery red cardstock, and used double sided tape to attach them to the fronts of the candy bags. Do you know how hard it is not to tear into those yummy chocolates? VERY! But since I really love them both, and think they are the best parents ever I will resist the siren call of candy and let them enjoy!
