Valentine's Decoration

 A little known fact about me: I am I Starbucks nerd. I even went as far as to have a part time job, I only work a handful of days a month on top of my full time job. That being said, I have tons of coffee bags and tea tins that I admittedly hoard. I don't know why, I guess I figure I can find something to do with them, I hate throwing things away! So, the next couple of posts will be how to repurpose those items. I decided to take on my tea tins first, and I decided to make decorations/centerpieces with them.
I used not only the tea tin, but a small floral block and a .99 cent centerpiece from the party store.
I cut apart the centerpiece in order to use the pieces. I am going to use the others for another project (stay tuned! Think Mardi Gras!).
I used both the Artbooking and Art Philosophy cartridges to cut some images. 
I used CTMH Pink Glitter Gems as an accent.
 I used some scraps and some paper and stickers I've had in my stash (for a long time, as in 10 years).
I used skewers and attached the images with glue dots. I used some tissue paper to fill the tin to fill the empty space and keep it from being wobly.
