Great Impressions: Valentine Tin


Hi, all!  Happy Monday!  I hope your weekend was good and that you're ready for a new week to start! :)  I've got another creation today that uses a beautiful sentiment stamp from the Great Impressions store.  Come and take a look...


We're featuring Valentine treat holder ideas this week and this one was actually pretty quick and easy to make!  I started by adding some patterned paper to the little tin.  I then added a strip of punched black cardstock and some red rhinestones.  I stamped and heat embossed E330 Valentine on some polka dotted patterned paper and added that to the tin.  Some sequin trim and a red heart rhinestone were added for more shine and whimsy.


I then added a bow to the handle of the tin.  This fun pink sparkly polka dotted ribbon seemed the perfect choice.  The ends were trimmed like banners to add more of a finished look to the bow.


The completed project is the perfect little holder for some treats.  You could throw some Kisses into it or even some chocolate squares.  If candy isn't for your Valentine, a bracelet or some small cards could also be tucked inside instead!  What do you think of the final project?


I'm entering this little tin into these fabulous challenge: Sweet Stamps: Hearts, Craft-Dee Bowz: Anything w/ a Handmade Bow, and Sprinkle N Sparkle: Use Flocking/Embossing Powder/Loose Glitter.

That's all for me today!  I'll be back next Monday with another creation using stamps from the Great Impressions store.  I hope you hop over to the Great Impressions blog for more inspiration and to join in our monthly challenge.  Until next week, HUGS and happy stamping! :)
