If you click on the photos it will enlarge them.

Here is an altered tin I made from my pineapple chunks can. Withe my Pampered Chef can opener I opened the bottom of the can, so the pull tab stays in place.  I then filled it w/ candy and glued it shut. Then added DSP from K&Company’s new Valentine pack.

The digi image is AJ from The Stamping Boutique.

For the hearts: I made the paper using alcohol inks.  Punched it w/ Stampin’ Up’s  3 heart punch. The flower is felt fabric, cut w/ Sizziz die-cut then twirled.  I coloured my image using Prismacolor pencils and baby oil. Sponged the edges w/ SU’s RHR & Cranberry Crip ink and ColorBox’s Chestnut and Copper.
