Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Sophia Heart Tin

This week’s Heart 2 Heart Challenge is to make a project using hearts. How appropriate for Valentine’s Day. Don’t you think? I decided to decorate some fun heart tins with the Sophia Paper Packet. (My swapping buddies all received one of these goody boxes, so I had the honor of making 6 of them.)

I started with a large heart shaped tin from Papertrey Ink. Then I added a 2" strip of stripped paper around the bottom of the tin. I found that using my Xyron machine was the best way to get the paper to stick. Then I traced the bottom of the box onto the pink floral paper twice and trimmed them out. (I lined the inside of the box with one of them.) I took the other one and placed it on top of the lid and felt for the groove in the metal next to the window. Using an embossing stylus, I followed the groove to indent the paper. Then I trimmed out the center with my Micro-tip scissors. I ran it through my Xyron machine to add some adhesive to the back and carefully applied it to the lid. I was able to run my fingernail around inside the groove to get a closer fit. Finally I added some Hollyhock ribbon around the edges of the lid. I got the idea from Debbie here. She is a genius! *Ü*

The flower came from Close to my Heart’s awesome new Designer Ribbon Pink Collection. I simply cut off one of the roses and adhered it onto the lid with a glue dot. The leaves were made by folding some Pear cardstock in half and running it through my crimper. I cut a half leaf shape out and then opened it up to get the full leaf shape. I sponged some Pear and Chocolate ink on the leaves to add a little more dimension. The tag was made using the sweet Love Ya! stamp set. (Can you tell I like that set from all of my previous posts? LOL!)

In case you are wondering what is inside the box...I filled it with Hershey’s Nuggets. I trimmed some papers from the Sophia Collection to 1" x 3" and wrapped them around the nuggets. (You all know how I love my Hershey’s nuggets. LOL!)

Hop on over to the H2H Challenge Blog and check out the other Design Team members creations. Be sure to visit their websites and leave a little love for them too. After all, it is Valentine’s Day and everyone needs a little love on Valentine’s Day. Right? LOL! (I listed their links below as well.)
Now it’s your turn. Link your heart themed creation to the H2H Blog. You just may win a prize at the end of the month or even be invited to become a guest designer for Heart 2 Heart!
