Tags Tins and Treats: Day 2

Good morning, it's Teresa. I am so excited about this months project parade, I adore tags, tin, and treats. My grandmother kept cakes, candy, cookies, and pies in tins on the back porch where it was cool. I would walk to the porch in anticipation as to what chewy goodness she had tucked away. As I thought of those days gone by and admired the inspiration photo it all reminded me of a girly tea party, so I wanted my tin to be girly and fun. I have put in my tin my favorite Valentine candy, chewy jelly cinnamon hearts, yummy.

I started by heat embossing the square pendant from the set Accent Notes in SU riding hood ink on the bottom of Bazzil pink cardstock. I then heat embossed the tiny hearts from the Hearts Desire set in SU pretty in pink ink above the pendants. I tied red fibers around the tin and then added the white boa fibers, I had envisioned this as soon as I thought of my girly tea party. I used the SU punch to punch the scrolls on the top and bottom using Prism blush red dark cardstock. I then added tiny gemstones to the scallops. I stamped on the tag Valentine Be Mine from the Hearts Desire set and used Tag Nesties to cut it out, I also sponged it with SU pretty in pink ink. I added a button and the glittery pink chipboard heart. I topped it off with a paper flower and ribbon. I made a card to set along side it using the same sets, the sentiment treat yourself is from the set Celebrating You.
















I have my little girly tin setting on our table with the card inviting you to treat yourself to a yummy cinnamon jelly heart candy. I hope that you are
inspired to get started on your project and have a great day! Enjoy.
