Well, actually, Blogger ate my blog post!
Last Pink Saturday, I posted about my altered tins,
Friday it was there on my blog...
and Saturday it wasn't! Gone!
In truth, it
So, I will do a quick recap, plus more Valentine goodies!
I made this tin for Wendy for her
Hearts and Flowers Valentine Tin Swap.
The heart is the bottom half of an Altoid tin.
Yes! I knew they made special heart-shaped tins for Valentine's Day,
and I searched for weeks trying to locate them!
I lined the inside rim with Tim Holtz tissue tape.
I then glued on some pretty background paper and onto that
a crepe paper yoyo edged with vintage silver glass glitter.
Also glass glittered the rim of the tin.
Adorable image from Debrina Pratt and butterfly wings from Paper Whimsy.
Made a cupcake with chipboard from Maya Road.
Glued on a glitter heart and xoxoxo.
Outside rim edged with Tim Holtz tissue tape,
then I glued red ruffled satin ribbon on top of that.
And voila the very lovely tin that Wendy made for me!
Doesn't it look cute hanging on the Eiffel Tower?
Thank you, Wendy, I ♥love♥ it!!
I was having so much fun making valentines
that I found it hard to stop! I made this LOVE banner
for a special little 5 year old, my niece!
The banner fits inside the box,
which is an altered Russell Stover candy box.
My friend Marti had the idea for her altered tin,
and I wanted to put a "juvenile" spin on it.
And since I was into the kiddie valentine thing,
I made this altered Altoid tin:
And inside I tucked in some bon bons made of buttons:
I was just loving working with all that RED!
Here's a couple of kiddie valentine freebies for you...
Thanks for stopping by...
