Scissors Sunday: Heart Tin Pin Cushions

Hi everyone!  Jackie (tettletop20) here with today's edition of Scissors Sunday.  I've had this set of 3 heart tins for almost a year now and I just didn't know what to do with them.

That is, until I saw this blog post from Barbara Schram.  She shows you how to make them with traditional scrapbooking paper, however, today I am going to show you how to take one of Jennifer's kits (one of my favorite kits) - Sweetiekins - and use the papers from it to transform the tins.

First off, I opened up my photo-editing software (PSE 7) along with the papers I wanted to use and cropped them to the measurements I needed.

Then I printed them off onto cardstock and cut them out.  I adhered them to the tins with some red line tape.  Then I took some ribbon, flowers, and buttons that I had in my craft stash and adhered them with Zots.  I inserted the pretty pins I bought at the craft store and voila - aren't they pretty?  I am really in love with them!

I hope you have a wonderful day!
