Homemade Valentine’s Day gifts

A heartfelt surprise complete with a shower of confetti

Anyone can surprise their nearest and dearest with this creative idea – even those who tend to leave things until the last minute! All you need for this fun Valentines gift is some heart-shaped confetti, a paper bag a drinking straw and (most importantly) an edding gel roller to add some decorative touches from the heart. When you hand over this message of love it will quite literally go with a bang! This highly impressive gift is easy to make when you use edding gel rollers and follow our creative hints and tips. The special low-odour gel ink in the edding 2185 gel roller makes writing a pleasure; available in 16 different colours, it glides effortlessly over the paper and works well on both dark-coloured paper (use pastels and metallic shades here) and light-coloured paper. Once opened, the pen is ready to use straight away.
