I first saw this brilliant idea on one of my favorite blogs
Clean and Scentsible
but wanted to give it my own personal Raggedy Bits touch!

Once you have downloaded and printed all three pages onto the white card stock, start cutting all of the tags and the verse out. Make sure that when you are printing out the verse that you set the page size to be 13cm x 18cm. That way you can use the other half of the card to mount the verse onto.
Mount the verse onto white card stock using complementing washi tape.
Then using the fine sharpie pen write down on each tag your date night for that month.
Some of the dates I have used which we really enjoyed were our DVD and popcorn, our picnic in our garden, weekend day trip to Sydney and our game night! There’s so many little things that you can do which don’t cost a bucket load and can be lots of fun!
I printed onto the 12 envelopes the months of the year and then went to town embellishing the envelopes also with washi tape. You could use buttons, stamps, whatever you like and then tie all of the envelopes together with matching Bakers Twine!
The possibilities are endless!
I then popped the verse and all the envelopes into a brown lunch bag and embellished it with a grubbied paper doily and a Valentine card which I found on the The Graphics Fairy, some jute and a cute little peg.
I hope you have as much fun as hubby and I did and boy are we looking forward to another fun filled year ahead of date nights!!
Your date nights can be big or small and I would love to hear from you with some of the date nights that you plan!
