Quick Five Minute Project!

This post will be quick too! I have to leave in 10 minutes for an A Muse class in Salado, Texas. I will have the pleasure of having Kim, Robin, and Veronica ride with me so the trip will be much shorter this way!

For a while now, I've been eying these heart tins at Michael's in the wedding section. I've watched them go on sale, thought about using a coupon on them, etc. for weeks now. I couldn't figure out what I wanted them for so I didn't get them.... until last week. As you may know, we don't give our kids refined sugar so I didn't want to get them to give candy in to my son's classmates. But I couldn't think of anything small enough to fit in there except nuts and that seems to be too dangerous to give out. Anyway, more about my son's valentines in another post. Finally, I just bought the tins for me. I decided I wanted them and I wanted to give them to my friends :)

So, I made 5 up quick today ... like 30 minutes ago and then I showered! Really fast project.

At Michael's, you get these tins in a package of 30 for regularly $19.99.

Slap some sticky strip on them, some ribbon, a little A Muse, the SU! Word Window Punch, Copic Lipstick Red, Spica Red Glitter, and a mini glue dot.... DONE!
OH and the M&M's ... of course!

I hope my carpoolers like 'em. And Sandy at Stamp Salado...she's the owner there ;).

Cool idea. I'll have to do something like this for the girls at work. Thanks for the treat!

These are so adorable!!! I came across this post when you first posted it and had to run right out and buy these. But, after I bought them, I could not remember for the life of me, where on earth I read about them. And voila! I found it! (Finally today, right? LOL!) I didn't get a chance to use them this year, but I'll have them for next year now. And I love what you did with them! Sorry for the late comment. :)
