Pinterest Inspired Present

Hey Dandy Lovers,

So I am obsessed with Pinterest, along with every other female in the world.... and for great reasons! One of the reasons why I love pinning so much is because it is inspiring and thoughtful. I get to share awesome ideas with all of the world and vice versa. The internet can be used for some serious sketchiness, but it is also used for a whole lotta awesome! Pinning shares and highlights everything awesome out there in the world, and it has definitely changed the way I live life :) Pretty cool.

Anywho, my boyfriend (Patrick) recently graduated from flight school in Ft. Rucker, AL. He is now moving to NV to go fly Blackhawks and I wanted to make a thoughtful and creative gift....

So I wrapped the present in a map of where we met....in Level Plains, AL. Haha :)

I used ribbon scraps to tape on the map wrap! Make a bump in the ribbon by rolling tape underneath to really pop!

Cut out little hearts out of red paper and taped a couple on! I love a red, black and white contrast...

Made a shadow box (so saw on Pinterest, again) of some shells from our South Carolina trip, his brand new wings, a picture of us at graduation, and the awesome Level Plains map! Kinda cheesy, but I think cheesy isn't always a bad thing :)
