Canine Be Yours?

Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I've been busy getting some projects completed and mailed. One thing I have been wanting so badly to do, was decorating paint cans (or pails). I have always seen how other people have "cutened" them up, and I just loved the look of it!  So I thought this would be the perfect time!  I found the 2 pails at Michaels and then got busy thinking how to decorate them! Since my oldest niece loves Panda's, I went searching for a cute panda.  Lo and behold I found the most adorable one at Little Scraps of Heaven. I then decided to use "You're Beary Sweet" as the sentiment on the tag. For my other niece, I found a cute dog (also at LSHD) and after "tweaking" him (he was sitting but I made him stand), he was perfect! For this sentiment, I used "Canine Be Yours"!!  I filled the pails with Hershey's kisses and threw some ribbon on them, and voila....I think they turned out so cute! (you can click on the picture to see it larger)
 Then for my sister and BIL, I went a little simpler. I found the Pull-up treats holder at SCS and used that to cover their Hershey's milk chocolate bar. I used some stamps from Papertrey Ink called Tiny Treats: Valentine to decorate the front and was finished in no time! (but don't tell them, I want them to think I slaved over this for hours!!!)
I did use my crimper for the first time on the bottom of these holders. You probably can't tell from the picture, but it added a nice finish touch. Thanks for looking!  I better get back to some more Valentine's gifts that I need to finish up!
