I wanted to make a Valentine's Day present that would work well as a gift for a guy or a girl. I also wanted it to be a tangible reminder of how I felt about the person, so I thought of the Valentines Day coupons people sometimes give to their significant other.

I decided to try to make a more permanent version of the Valentine's Day coupons that the receiver could hold on to forever and "redeem" at times when they needed a hug, kiss, or just someone to talk to. Therefore it needed to be small so that the person could carry it with them or use it as a charm on their backpack. 

This project is really simple and takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete. I used a Woodgrain stamp that I made for this project. If you want you can follow that Instructable (http://www.instructables.com/id/Polymer-Clay-Woodgrain-Stamp/)  and make your own Woodgrain Polymer Clay Stamp, or you can use a Woodgrain stamp purchased at a store.
