14 Days of Valentine's Day 2

Today was MY day!! Woo Hoo!! My family NEVER wants to see another Altoid mint again!! LOL I needed 15 of these puppies for this swap, and I didn't start collecting them until the beginning of January!! Anywho, I painted the tins with Aluminum Paint so they would be all bright and shiny. I made 2 versions. I used 2 of my fave Valentine images and 2 sets of Valentine words on the insides. They were decorated with various hearts cut from my new handy dandy cuttlebug, sequins, glitter and red sparkly trims.

The tins were delivered in my fave ever designed genie bag. I hope the gals enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed making them. The tutorial for the bags can be found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/geniebag.php I modified it to suit my needs by making the back piece larger and using it as a fold over topper, punched and tied with ribbon.
