Valentine's TP Container

Hello Bloggers,

I'm back tonight, after a long hiatus, to share a couple of Valentine's projects that I just completed.  I was perusing YouTube the other day and watched a great tutorial on how to make these cute little candy/gift containers using empty toilet paper rolls.  I thought these would make cute little gifts to send to my nieces for Valentine's Day!  I have tons of empty rolls that I had saved a couple of years ago for some tp minis that I wanted to do.  Well, as usual, my plans fell through, so this was the perfect project to use some of them up.

I also decided to use these projects as an opportunity to use items from my stash that have to this point, remained unused.  I was very pleased to be able to use some trims and lace for the first time ever.

Keeping with the same theme with using what I already had in my stash, I decided to use this darling image from Tiddly Inks.  

Here you can see all of the trims and lace I used.  I dyed the hangers on both with my Distress Stains.  The colors matched the papers perfectly.

I made my own sentiment using a heart punch and some Glossy Accents.

Of course, I colored up the images with my copic markers.  The paper I used to cover the tp rolls were older paper stacks from My Minds Eye (Lost and Found-Blush) and Fancy Pants (Love Story)

I lined the insides with some remnants from old bridesmaid dresses that I've had in my closet for years.  I really did use everything in my stash.
