  1. Sending a slideshow or video message

This can now be done easily without the need for editing skills. I used this service called slide.ly. Not because it gave me that professional outcome, but the fact that it is free and easy to use is enough for me.
In my own case, I made a series of signs on paper. Writing few nice words and ending it with I’m sorry and I love you would do. Using my phone camera and a mirror, I could make pictures of me holding each of these signs. I had an expression on my face to match each sign (smiling in pictures with sweet words and showing remorse where I wrote that I’m sorry), which makes the message original and priceless.

With these pictures I made a slide show and sent to him.

There are tons of ideas to include in the slideshow or video message.

It is possible to add some personal touches to it, which makes it more original and suitable for your couple. You could select any other cartridge themes that will be best for you. See it for yourself in the video!

  1. Handmade Pop Up Cards to say sorry

This one requires some creative drawing, which it’s not a problem in my own case. I simply drew some characters that we both found significant in our relationship (could be flowers, animals, anything at all that would look nice in a card), and made this pop up when he opens the card. Wait till you see the process and then you will understand what I mean.

The needed materials are a set of scissors, pencil, crayons, cardboards, color paint, ruler, markers, glue, and a folder. Though the tutorial is not in English, I still understood the process. It is easy and interesting.

Just with a few measuring, drawing, cutting, and gluing together, I got a cute sorry card for my husband.

  1. Secret door card

Wonder what the secret door might be about? Imagine giving him a card on which he expects an apology message (judging from the present situation in the relationship). Opening the card and he finds a message or picture which he feels that is all in the card, then you show him the secret door where there will be more surprise for him.

Sounds like a lot of work, but it is on the contrary very simple. Just with cardboards, a pair of scissors (in place of a cutter), ruler, pen, and glue, you can get this done in no time. The creativity and surprise effect in this card is enough for him to know you are really sorry. Watch and learn in the video.
