Gift of Love

Hello blogging friends!
I have a creation to share with you today.

Since my last post "Friends in Paris", I still had all my Pion Designs DPs on 
my desk and I was in the mood of making something vintage,
so I decided to make an altered project.

Over the years I have saved a few whisky canisters.
They are nice sturdy canisters, perfect for 
storing knitting needles or candles.
Or, they can be altered and used to put a 
bottle of wine for a friend.


Pion Designs Blog is having a Valentine's theme challenge til Feb 12.
It is a perfect chance to dress up this canister with
gorgeous Pion Designs papers.

The DPs I used are from the following collections:
Studio of Memories
From My Heart II
From Granma's Attic (girl image)

This is the front view of the altered canister.

And this is the rear view of the altered canister.
I added a pocket for a heart tag.
I have stamped the pocket with a Magnolia background stamp.

I decorated with laces, pearls, yarn, ribbon, Prima trinket, 
Memory Box diecut, and WOC flowers.
I added a Tim Holtz Clock Key on the lid to
make it easier to lift the metal lid.

The following supplies are available at the Ribbon Girl Shop:
18mm cream fine vintage style cluny lace
8mm cream fine vintage style scallop lace
Ivory looped organza trim
WOC 20mm pale pink open roses
4mm white pearl bead string

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!


I would like to enter this project in the following challenges:

From whiskyconister to this?! O.o Brilliant! I don't like alcohol at all, but seeing this made me want to go to the store and buy something (anything really - doesn't matter since I wouldn't drink it anyway) that would came in such canister so I could alter it. Though I'd probably fill mine with candy and crafty goodies. ;) This would make a perfect girt (box). I absolutely love how you altered yours. I don't think it could get any better than this - it's gorgeous! Hugs! xx
