Valentine Altoid Tin

I've been wanting to try using an Altoid tin to make a sweet, little project for a while now.  
I decided to go with a Valentine theme and use a picture of my honey and me!  I started with a few patterned papers for the background.  The one on the left side looks like a library card and says, "Our Love Story."  To that paper I added a tag, polka dot heart, metal 14 sign, heart stick pin and Two Paper Divas Candy Heart that reads "Be Mine." 
 On the right side of the tin, I used a picture of Bryan and me.  I added a fence with some paper flowers, love cutout and "Kiss Me" from Two Paper Divas.  
I finished the project by adding some mini pom pom ribbon to the outer edge.
  I hope you have enjoyed my first try using an Altoid tin!  Thanks for stopping by Kirby's Kards!

Make it a great day!


  1. Your Altoid tin is darling, Jenny! Did you decorate the outside of the tin?

    1. Thanks Robin! I didn't decorate the outside on my first attempt, but I'm antsy to try another one and get wild and decorate the outside and inside! Thanks for checking out my blog! Hope to see you sometime, maybe at one of Rene's classes??!! Thanks

  2. Awww.....what a sweet idea! Love the pix with the little fence - super duper cute! Hugs, Jenny

  3. Awesome project! I collected those for a while with intentions to decorate them, but it didn't happen. Maybe I should try to find them as this is such a cute idea!

  4. Very cute Jenny! I've been wanting to do one of these for awhile now. You have inspired me to get moving on that!
