Birthday jar of goodies!

It was my dear bf's birthday last weekend and while I was racking my brains for what to get him, a friend of mine told me of something she made for her ex bf. She made 52 notes of coupons, quotes, song lyrics, etc for 52 weeks of the year in a jar and filled it up with Hershey's kisses. Every week he's dip in for a new "note" and there was chocolate for when he felt like it. Knowing my dear bf isnt a great chocolate fan but doesnt mind having it once in a while, I thought this would be great but it wouldnt be all that I would give him. I only made 20 notes and he is allowed to open 1 a week but I gave my friend's idea a twist. First I rolled up my notes and secured them with ribbon to look like scrolls, like this....



Then I bought mulberry type paper in a few colours n some coloured foil wire and wrapped up each piece of Hershey's kisses with "scrolls" stuck in random ones so they look like this.



I put them into a jar and H gets to pick only one 'package' a week so depending on his luck, he gets something or just a bit of a chocolate snack!!



I'm not to stingy lar....I also got him an all expense paid trip for 2 of us to Kota Kinabalu...remember my beautiful pics of the sea? Yup, my best friend from my childhood is awaiting my return there and a weekend with H all to myself works out great for both of us!! Hehehe....Oh we also had dinner with his family n a couple of his best friends :p not to mention the very boistrous session we had at Sheraton the night before....hehehe
