Candy Paint Tin for the Hubby

Hi all!!  Sort of been MIA this last week.  I am getting back in the swing of things again.  I had a Birthday over the weekend and getting kid's V-day cards put together means I have neglected the craft area.  Although... I did manage to decorate a Clear Paint Tin filled with most things Chocolate for my Husband for part of his Valentine's present.  He has a sweet tooth like no other.  My Daughter helped me with this project.  Pretty simple!!  I am thinking ahead for Hostess or Shower type gifts.  These Paint Cans come in all kinds of sizes.

Also... if you want to check out some GREAT inspiration and win some prizes... go over to Gaby's blog at Gabycreates.com.. where she is having a "Linking Party" for her Blogiversary.
You need to post your favorite Valentine's project and follow any 6 of the linking participants.  Have fun!  Make some new friends!  Mention that I sent you.
My Paint Can is not my favorite... but the ONLY thing I did for V-day.

Large Clear Craft Paint Tin - found at any craft store
Patterned Paper from Reminisce "Set the Table" collection
Random chipboard letters on punched circles.  Extra Ribbon (don't know brand)
Candy Jar Embellishments - from Martha Stewart Crafts
Real Red and Green Galore cardstock from Stampin' Up
