Quietfire Queen of Hearts

Happy Valentine's Day! Today is also the day to upload projects to the Quietfire Design blog for the annual Queen of Hearts Challenge. I had every intention of making a card, but time got away from me. You have until midnight today to upload something.

So instead I will upload photos of the wee gifties I made for my staff this year. These are small "fast-food joint sour cream container" shaped vessels. I filled them with sewn tulle sacks that hold chocolates and cinnamon hearts. The outside of the humble cardboard containers (shhh, originally toilet paper rolls) are covered with coloured aluminum that I embossed and sanded. I used Spellbinder dies to create a little heart tag greeting. Hope it tickles!
