Heart Art Swap

~ I participated in Melissa Hubbell's Garden of Pink Shadows
Heart Art Swap for this February. It was a 3 for 3 swap. I made 1 extra for me cause I liked how well my idea came out!
~ I altered a empty Altoids tin to make this one of a kind art.

~The charms hanging from the tin are made from shrink plastic. I really love how they came out!

Here they are wrapped up in tussie mussie cones and extra goodies!
I used Glimmer Mist on the cones.

The one I kept one for self was #9 (not shown)

Here is the inside. I made the vintage little girl 'pop' out , added lots of glitter glitz and sealed it all with diamond glaze, inside and out.

~ The fudge and following goodies are from Stacy Harris of Creative Muse

~ The chocolate and vintage clip art are from Melissa


~ LOVE this! It's a lavender filled sachet from Becky of Emily and Edward!
Reminds me of my Mom's drawers.

~Also received some cards from her shop, a decorative vintage key ornament, a heart pin and a matching cloth bag!

~ I really, really, really love this cuff! I've always wanted one and it's the icing on the cake of goodies to receive just in time for my Birthday! Only it came with no name and I don't know who to thank!
