My Funny Valentine


This is the third day of my 14 days of Love Notes and my husband really liked the first two.  One of them he kept at work and the other is pinned to the calendar in the bathroom.  I decided it was time for a funny one this time and I’m waiting for him to wake up and start getting ready for work because that is when he’s going to notice it – when it’s most inconvenient hehe

This one is a fake roll of toilet paper.  It’s made to look like there is just enough left to do the deed.  I took an empty roll and cut strips of printer paper to fit.  I used a glue stick to adhere the paper to the roll.  When I got to the end I wrote my note going backwards and then glued 1 square of toilet paper to the end.  I turned it over and ran one thin line of my glue stick down the center and rolled it up so it is held together but when he pulls it will unroll.  The words are read one line at a time going from the bottom up so as he pulls he’ll see more of it.  Hopefully he won’t look around before he sits down but when he does look around he will find some stashed toilet paper nearby.  I had planned on doing it better than this and leaving more space between each line but some days he wakes up at 4 am so I was worried I didn’t have enough time.  I fell sleep early last night so no time to play LOL  The best part is this valentine didn’t cost me anything to make!  Since I’m not working I have to be frugal.

Ain’t I a stinker???

  1. Oh, that is so funny! Very clever!! But I hope he didn’t immediately go for a new roll. I know my son would just reach for the new roll and leave the little bit hanging there for somebody else to change if he was in a hurry. 😉 Let us know.

Let me know what you think of this post.
