Here is a valentines can that I made the girl that I swapped with was a tinker bell fanatic. I have a Cricut machine and a Tinkerbell cartridge to cut the die cuts which any of you local ladies are welcome to come over and use by the way.
I embossed the hearts.
and used red floral wire to wrap the hearts around the can. Tinkerbell has little gems on her shoes and hair. just to add the Bling.I always tie ribbon on the handles to decorate. For those who know me I am addicted to Ribbon so try to use it on almost every project. Luckily I have a Ribbon outlet near me and a Trimtex outlet store so am able to fuel my addiction pretty in expensively LOL I actually ended up adding more ribbon to the handles than shows in the pictures I just tie small pieces on until the handle is covered.
The other can I made is a more traditional valentine theme heart paper Love quotes and title.

The "Marie" can was one of the cans I received. Isn't it clever how she laced up the side with thin ribbon. and the paper underneath is sparkly these pictures don't do it justice

  1. Marie, I love the tins. Very cleverly done. You've given me some great ideas for presents this year for some of my neighbours.

    Keep it up and best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. Warm blessings for you and yours!
