Altered Valentine Tins


I got this 3 pack of gold tins from Gina K. Designs for only 3.99! I altered them for valentine's day. The tops are not stamps, they are called "chip toppers" from Bazzill Basics and they are actually stickers. I got them online from http://www.embellishonline.com/. Other cardstock used here was white, pink, red and caramel along with my Coluzzle circle template and scallop scissors. Very easy and so much fun!

Find something to alter for yourself today! You don't have to buy a tin, just look around the house for anything not being used or use an interesting container that may otherwise be thown away. Nut cans, fruit and veggie cans, bottle caps, glass bottles, etc. The possibilities go on and on! ~hugs and happy altering!~

How many chocolates fit in each one?

stampingbeth-I filled each one with about 4 chocolate hearts, 4 hershey's kisses and 4 rolo chocolates. Probably 15-18 pieces of these sorts of chocolates will fil nicely in each one. Thanks for looking! :)
