Any ideas for Valentine’s day gift? If not, try to make something by yourself, like homemade nachos with salsa and guacamole. It’s the easiest way to create a simple starter before romantic dinner, snack or watching movies together.

- pepper
- herbs (basil, oregano) or any fresh herbs
- 1 spoon of chill flakes

1. Mix all dry ingredients together. Add oil and water. Make dough.

2. Roll out dough about 1-1,5 mm. Cut the heart shape. Bake in the oven for about 10-15 min untill gold.

To make guacamole You need.
- big and soft avocado
- 2 tbs lime juice

Smash avocado using fork. Add all ingredients and mix them together.

To make salsa:

Chop tomatoes and mix them with the rest of ingredients.To make salsa:

To make beer holder You need:
- glued felt (A4 size)
- craft foam
- color threads
- scissors
- needle
- piece of paper

1. Mark bottom of the bottle on the paper. Cut and fold in half.
2. Measure a perimeter of the bottle. Remember that felt (upper layer) must be about 0,5 mm longer than foam. Put glued felt and craft foam together and sew on heart shape using color thread.

3. Put both layers in half. Mark and cut out paper circle.

4. First sew the bottom and then side of the holder.

Thaaa... daaa
