I returned home from SU convention last summer with a bunch of tins that I just knew I would use for something great. Then I put them away and forgot about them. Well, I was looking for something the other day and ran across them again...so I pulled one out to see just what I could come up with.
Decorating the outisde of the tin was easy. I just slapped on some Real Red Card Stock, some Sending Love Speciality DSP (#117153), and some hearts that I created using the new Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die (#117332). To finish it off I added a bow that I created with Chocolate Chip satin ribbon topped off with a Real Red corduroy button.
The tin is very thin so that limited the things that I could put inside. I knew I wanted to use candy, so I set out to find just the right confection to put inside. I tried using Peppermint Patties, and although they did work, I opted for Hershey Miniatures instead. They fit like they were made for each other and I was able to cover each one with DSP. I think I will have to give this one to my sweetheart. You can purchase these great tins in the clearance section of my website for only .99 cents each. But don't wait too long, because once they are gone, they're gone for good.
