Valentine Care Packages



I try to send little packages to my kids who are away from home. For Valentine's Day I made up packages of all of the projects we have been making in enrichment club. They don't know I didn't make them especially for them! ;) These area few of the tins we made at our first class. They are straight from Nichole's blog. The only thing I changed was the sentiments. You can't see very well, but the peanut butter cups say HUGS and KISSES. Nichole sells these cute tins, or you can get them at SpecialtyBottle.com. The stamp set is from Papertrey and is called Sweet Love. It has nugget labels, ovals that fit in the SU punches, and lots of little words to customize your look. I used Crystal Stickles, but it picked up the Pomegranate ink and turned red. Sort of a custom Stickles color!
I sent these tins, a sour cream container, a covered Hershey bar, a little Nugget Tag Tent, and a Tic Tac holder. I thought they made a cute box full of treats. Tomorrow I will be busy making sour cream containers for the secretaries' desks at my hubby's work. Thanks for visiting!

Stamps: PaperTrey Sweet Love
Ink:Purely Pomegranate
Paper:Very Vanilla, Purely Pomegranate
Extras: Pomegranate Double Stitched Ribbon, circle and oval SU punches, scallop scissors, Crystal Stickles
