Love Is In The Air!!!

It's snowing buckets of snow today so I thought I'd warm my heart by working on a few Valentine's Day projects. The first is a mini nugget tin filled with 6 Hershey nuggets. I made one of these for our Mail Carrier at Christmas and got the cutest Thank You back.....these make super little treats for people in your life....especially the mail carrier who has to work in this snow and cold...brrrrr...just the treat they need on a cold day.

Also, the Mini I Love You Note tin is filled with 10 mini notes that one can jot down an "I Love You" and tuck in your hubby's brief case, your child's lunch box, your mom's book, or on your plate of cookies with dad's coffee, etc....
I remembered this wonderful technique that my friend, Peggysue, had used on a Paper Trey Ink Santa. She stamped the image on clear overhead, then put glitter on the back of the image. It was such a beautiful look for Santa. So I tried that same technique on this heart on the lid. I stamped the image with Staz-on on the outside of the lid, then glued glitter (and lots of it) on the inside of the lid.
The Hearts are from PaperTrey Ink's Heart Prints
I also got an idea jog for the I Love You tin from my February issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. The idea came from Maggie Holmes on page 71. Her tins are different, I believe, and the cards are larger, but I love the note idea using the tins.
Thanks, Peggysue, Maggie and Creating Keepsakes, for a wonderful idea.
I had fun working on these today...keeping warm. I hope they warmed your heart too.
