DIY Valentine Tin Cans

I posted some Organizing Tin Cans last week, and they were kind of popular!  I decided to do a valentine version for fun.  We have valentine love notes at our house, and these cans are perfect for holding the writing  tools and notes.  It's kind of our writing center.


I used a tissue paper flower for this can.  I honestly use these little flowers for everything!  Martha Stewart has a great tutorial on how to make them.


Here's a side view so you can see the ribbon I put around the middle of the can.


I got so many comments about the pom pom ribbon on my other tin cans!  I always put the pom pom ribbon on at least one of my cans.  They're just fun!


I used ric rac on this little can and glitter hearts.



And you can't forget the festive writing tools!  Here's bit of my valentine collection.


I used Crate Paper's Fourteen Line on my cans.  I LOVE this line!  The stripped paper did come from Pinkpaislee's City Sidewalks Line.  So many cute papers to choose from!
