Valentine Altered Items

I altered a couple of items for my girls for Valentine's Day. I got these striped little tin buckets from the Target $1 spot. I love the stripes.


I added some fun ribbon to the handles, and I added an office clip that says "be mine" to the rim of each bucket. I used Mr. Big Bite to punch a hole and set the heart eyelet for the Prima Sprite stack. I added some candy to both of these for my girls. They loved them!

Not too long ago, I was at my sister-in-law's house, and she had Frappuccino bottles in her fridge. I got all excited, because I wanted a couple of those bottles! She thought I was crazy! Anyway, I've seen tons of these altered on various sites, and I finally got a chance to do a couple! What a great size bottle!

Here's the top of the bottles. I used my Coluzzle to cut the circles. How cute are these? I filled them with Hershey's Hugs.

I hope you had a nice Valentine's Day! Thanks for stopping by!

Marlou's comment made me crack up..."the target $1 spot sounds like a great store" If she only knew how awesome Target or Tar-jey {lol} is. Target is worse than walmart, they get me everytime. My daughter made valentine's day tins, but the ones with hearts instead of stripes. I bet your daughters loved them.
