Valentine Nugget Tin

Hey Everybody: I have been hearing about Nugget Tins and finally ordered the Limitless Labels set from PTI. This is the easiest set to use and I think I will use it a lot for many different occasions. For my first attempt I stamped 6 labels with Background basic Hearts. I then stamped 6 other labels with Raspberry Fizz and Pure Poppy. I stamped a little red heart that comes with the set in the middle of the circle and put a very small heart-shaped rhinestone in the middle. The belly band is made from Bazzil textured red and some raspberry fizz. I tied a bow with some heart ribbon from Michaels. Next I attached a small 3 x 3 card made with a really cute image from My Favorite Things called How Sweet. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with copics and a little stickles on the flowers. The sentiment is a combination of MFT How Sweet and Our Craft Lounge Granny's Truffles. I ran 3 small lines of repositional tape in the bottom of the tin to keep the Hershey's nuggets secure, yet loose enough to take out easily. This project was actually really quick. I can not believe how easy those labels stamp. I plan to make a few more for Valentine gifts for my friends at work.

This is so adorable! I love how you added BB: Hearts to the labels and the rhinestones really jazzes it up. Very sweet Valentine project! :)

Hi Cathy! I agree this set is so easy to work with and the results look amazing! Thanks for the tip about putting some tape along the bottom. Duh, why didn't I think of that? Mine was all kinds of crooked (the pic in my PTI gallery only LOOKS straight, they really weren't!).

Thank you for leaving such kind comments on my blog. As for the pens that go with the notebook, I got the idea and measurements from a thread started on the PTI forum: (I think you can copy and paste this address into your browser.) It's been awhile since I made them and I can't recall the exact details.

Anyways, if you decide to make some be sure to let us know!! I'd love to see. :0)
