Valentine Treat Tin And Pocket Tag!

Only 15 days to get those cards and projects done for your Valentines, so I am trying to get prepared and have created this little Valentine Treat Tin and Pocket Tag!










The tin was acutally a Christmas tin that I got from a catalog (I think it was Collections Etc.) a couple years ago. It had a gingerbread man on the lid, so I covered it up, and now you can’t even tell it was once for Christmas! I pulled out my trusty Sizzix Big Shot machine and went to work with some of my new Quickutz dies from Lifestyle Crafts.  Time for some fun!

My product list:

655268 Sizzix Big Shot

14316753 Bo Bunny Isabella 12×12 Collection Pack (This item is a pre-order item)

DC0460 Quickutz Lace (border die)

DC0449 Quickutz Mini Pocket

DC0429 Quickutz Nesting Doilies

2056 Want2Scrap Bling Silver Rhinestones




I cut the Bo Bunny Paper to fit lid. Actually, I created this whole project using one piece of double sided Bo Bunny paper and only a small piece of white cardstock for my tag. Cool, huh?

I cut the Lace border to use on the side of the lid and one piece on the end of the tag placed inside the Mini Pocket to easily pull out the tag, plus it looks prettier.  The Mini Pocket is so cute! I can tell just by using it once, that I will be using it a lot more for things!

Last of all, I cut the small doily from the Nesting Doilies and placed it on the tag with a single rhinestone in the center.

Place the tag on the tin, wrap with ribbon. Done! Fast, easy and pretty. That is how I like to do things!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

    This is so simple yet so smart as well, you can get little tin like this almost any where and now that you can decorate them this way and know that they will look good there is no boundaries on what you can do and for what holiday you can do it. Great job on this post I will make sure to save this link to my favorites because I love this kind of stuff.

  • You are right! You can do anything for any occasion with these cute little tins! Glad you liked this post!

    Valentine’s Day will forever be associated with the classic gifts of cards, roses, and chocolates. And you can’t go wrong with those mainstays. But I think it is a great idea for this site to suggest that this year you try shaking up convention with some innovative and non-traditional gift-giving ideas for your special someone, even if that someone is yourself. And who doesn’t like treating themselves. It’s better than staying home and moping.

    I watched a news report on my local station which covered the sudden rush that occurs each year for flower bouquet processing companies and sellers in the days that lead up to Valentine’s Day. Watching how stressful it is and how easily many sources can sell out should make many people move away from the traditional custom of buying flower bouquets as a gift.

  • You are right! I like to treat myself to more paper! Hehe! That way I can make more great gifts to give to those I love! A busy person is a happy person, right?

  • Flowers are nice, but they die, where paper and embellishments can create personalized gifts that can be cherished forever!
