Valentine Sweetness

I haven't really made many Valentine's yet, so this little project was a real treat for me.  Well, in all actuality, it will be a treat for a friend at work.  But I sure had fun making it.  I used a Small Tin Heart from Papertrey Ink, and decorated it with a free digital image available this week at Crafty Secrets Blog.
I printed it and hand-cut the image, then placed it on top of the Small Tin Heart.  I also printed the free patterned paper and cut it to fit the width of the Small Tin Heart.  Then, I hot glued and tied some thin red gingham ribbon around the edge to create a big bow.  The lid is still removable so that I can put some Valentine's candy hearts in the container for gift-giving.
I'm linking my little tin heart project in the following challenges:
Crafty Secrets All You Need Is Love February Linky Party - Using the free patterned paper and Valentine heart image for my project
Nichole Heady/Papertrey Ink - February Release Challenge - I incorporated the colors from the first Color Inspiration Board (although the black, blue and green are far more subtle), and used the third sketch where you wrap tiny tags with twine around a larger tag.  I just incorporated it into a project rather than a card.  My Papertrey Ink products are the Small Heart Tins and the Tiny Tags Dies I cut and hung from the project to comply with the rules.
Word Art Wednesday #169 - Anything Goes

The Kraft Journal #209 - Valentine's Challenge/Love Makes The Word Go 'Round - I used Buff Ivory Coverweight Cardstock from The Kraft Outlet to cut my mini tags.

Classy Cards 'N Such - Challenge #70 - Shabby Chic Heart - From Classy Cards 'N Such I used Baker's Twine and Fire Engine Red Glitter and Crystal Ice Ultra Fine Glitter.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I'm filling my shopping cart at PTI and PRAYING that I might win.  I'm crossing my fingers, and hoping for the best!
Have a wonderful week, my crafty friends!
