You Light Up My Life

Valentine's Day is fast approaching.
Who doesn't love handmade presents? Score big and turn on (silly pun intended) the romance with a cool DIY project brought to you by those cool peeps at FredFlare.

Chris helps you step-by-step. Totally nothing to it and I'm sure you all have MOST of the materials at home:
*single hole punch
*heart shaped choclate box (don't have this handy? buy one and chow down the chocolate while creating the masterpiece!)
*scotch tape
*duct tape
*rikrak (or a ribbon of your choice will work too)
*beads (recycle those mardi gras beads!)
*old lampshade
*lamp base of your choice
*light bulb

Check out their podcast and learn how to make Chris' self-proclaimed "World Famous Heart Shape Lampshade!"

Don't forget to include:
*a mushy card with cheesy light puns!
*a mixtape using the word light
my faves:
Bob Marley featuring Lauryn Hill - Turn your lights down low
World Class Wrecking Crew - Turn off the lights
TLC - Red light special
Debby Boone - You light up my life
