Valentine's Pail

The project I have to share today is a clear pail that I decorated for Valentine's Day.  I plan to fill it with peanut M&Ms for my sweetie.  Peanut M&Ms are one of his favorite candies.  I put some in his Christmas stocking this year and have gotten in 'trouble' for eating some of them, so I figure I will replenish the stash.  I decided to decorate the pail for a cute way of packaging the candy.

Also, over at Die Cuttin Divas and My Craft Spot this week, the challenges this week is Anything Goes so I'm submitting this project to those challenges.  Thanks for coming by!

  2. SO cute! Great idea for decorating your candy holder. Your pen work looks amazing-really adds a lot of detail. Thanks for entering your project in this weeks challenge at My Craft Spot. :)


  3. So cute, I really like the ribbon on the handle & the decorations on the top!

  4. What a super tin! It's sure to be a hit - especially when filled with his favourite candies. I laughed that you got in "trouble" for stealing some of the Christmas ones. I do just the same sort of thing!
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at My Craft Spot!
