iPod valentines treat with blood, sweat and tears!!

Well you see the title, well I made this iPod box for Paul based on this idea however being americal they just used candy, and I had to make it into a box ... 

I literally put blood, sweat and tears (ok so not the sweat) but blood and tears .... here is the outcome



Yes I managed to slice off my fingertip with my scalpel whilst crafting, thing is, that I only changed the blade on it yesterday, so it was nice and sharp ready to slice into me!! Grrr!  I won't show you the graphic photos of all of the blood everywhere, my lovely MIL came to the rescue and managed to dress it properly for me!! 

Anyway onto the iPod, I added my own songs to the template and printed them off, then made up a box which was small enough to look life like, but big enough to hold an iTunes voucher for him. I added some red and white bakers twing for the wire, and taped on a role on the end of each piece for the headphones! (cooh eh!) 

Sealed up

Now with Paul working away during the week, we are planning to make a meal together on Saturday night, and I will decorate the table etc etc, so I made up a little pale of sweets, just for a little something extra, and I have bought him a Blu Ray disc aswell! 


Tha Bucket (Pail) came from hobbycraft and was 89p, I filled it with Silver heart Dragees (wedding favour) and lindt lindor eggs, but it looked a little plain, so I added some flowers to the handle (knowing that these can be removed afterwards and reused!)


Well thats it for me today, mainly because I am struggling to type, I never realized how much I typed with my little fingers on both hands!! whoops!

OUCH OUCH OUCH!!!! :(
Glad you managed to stop it bleeding Tams. It's 'funny', I did mine after I changed the blade... I didn't change it again for ages afterward thinking I'd do it again... made me feel sick. Hope it feels better soon.
Love the i-pod with the voucher inside and I used little buckets for my wedding favours as they were farm themed :)
