Freestanding Photo Collage
Give your valentine the gift of a trip down memory lane with our freestanding photo collage. Select 14-20 photos that are special to you and your man, and crop them into 4-inch squares. Print onto photo paper; cut out. Using adhesive strips or Mod Podge, carefully adhere each photo to a thick piece of white cardstock (the paper has to be thick enough to stand on its own). Use a crafts knife to cut out each photo, leaving a small border. On all four sides of each photo, cut small slits as shown. Assemble your photo collage by fitting the photos together using the cut slits.

Stamped Cheese Markers
We can’t help but get all cheeseball on this adorable Valentine’s Day gift idea. Thrift up some silver-plated forks, then placing between two felt pieces, flatten in a vise. With the front side up, hammer metal stamps into the fork to mark the name of the cheese. Cut off a few inches at the top of the handle, then make a curly loop by wrapping it in felt and curling backward using pliers. Surprise him by adding the new gifts to an all-out cheese spread.
