Hopefully, you are all seeing a bit of sunshine this week! We are to get more snow this week...ugh!!!
The challenge this week at Crafting With Deedee's Digi's, is to use some yellow on our cards/projects, so I decided that my Valentine Birds would be yellow!
I chose to use Deedee's Valentine Tweet Set, and have a little tutorial for you today.
First, you will need to size, print, and color your images. Mine were all colored with Copic markers.
Your next step will be to choose a punch (I used a rectangle Nestability). Punch your image, and while still in the punch, sponge with ink, using a sponge dauber.
Next, you will take a can that has a pop top lid - I used a fruit can. Of course, your can will be washed and thoroughly dried prior to beginning your project! With a 'magic' can opener, which you can purchase from Pampered Chef or Wal-Mart, remove the BOTTOM of your can, leaving the top intact.
It will look like this.
The can is upside down, so the 'bottom' that you are seeing in the can,
is actually the pop top lid.
Next, use some DP and your image, and decorate your can to your heart's desire!
Once decorated, fill with candy, money, craft items, stamps, etc.
I made a quick tag from scraps, and have a fun gift, or gifts!
All good gifts must have a gift bag!
This bag is made from a paper lunch sack, another printed image, some silk flowers, and a scrap of the pink dotted DP.

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope that you enjoyed this project. It's been a very long time since I learned to make either of these projects, but I think you can find them both on Splitcoast Stampers in their Resource section.
Be sure to enter the challenge at Crafting with Deedee's Digi's - use some yellow on your cards/projects!
Can't wait to see your beautiful creations!
Hugs and smiles,
