Tutorial Tuesday - Valentines Treasures

I am super excited! I have sooooo many downloads for you today! I've got a project, card, AND a Valentine's Day font for you! All FREE! And a sale in my shop if you don't have any of the cute silver DVD tins for storing your treasures in!

All the papers and labels needed for this project can be downloaded. In addition to the label PDF here and the case cover PDF here you'll need 1 bag of Hershey's Treasures and 1 DVD tin, some double sided tape, and glitter if you want a little sparkle.

I used the Diamond Stickles. This color is awesome because it takes on the color of whatever you put it on, essentially getting many different colors from one bottle. You'll see in the close-ups below!


Yep, that's all the same Stickles color! I love how it's red, and light pink!

So here's what you do:
Print out the labels onto sheets of Avery label #18160 or #8160. (It's the standard size 1" x 2 5/8" white mailing labels. I like printing them out on regular paper first and then stacking a blank label sheet and the printout on top of each other; hold them to the light to make sure they'll print correctly and are lined up. If they are, go ahead and print onto the sticky labels.)
Cut out the background paper and adhere with double sided tape onto the storage tin. Cut out the sentiment you'd like to use. There are three included that say:
You're Sweet
Happy Valentine's Day
I Love You
(I used the two extra I didn't use on the tin to make a card. They fit great on the front of a standard sized card!)

Next, I used the Stickles to embellish a few of the labels and the hearts on the sentiment. After they've dried, just use some foam tape to adhere the sentiment to the front of the tin.

Wrap all the nuggets in the labels, place in your tin, and you're done.

If you'd like the tins I've got with the rounded corners, you can buy them from my store.
Don't forget to use the coupon code "VAL09" at checkout to get 20% off your entire purchase!


If you like the font that I used in the I Love You sentiment with the hearts cut out, you can download it here. I made it with a free font making website called Your Fonts.

Once again, leave me a comment if you make the project! I'd love to see how yours turn out! If you want a different color scheme let me know and I'll see what I can do!

Edited: Also, I've had a few emails about the printout not lining up with the labels. Make sure that when you print, it's not scaling to print, or fitting to page. Usually printers will default to this setting. If you uncheck the box that says that, it will print at the exact size, which will allow it to line up correctly.
That should be all it takes to get you going on your project!

Happy Valentine's Crafting!
