Happy Heart Day Mini Pails

Happy Wednesday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing some little Mini Paint Pail valentines I have been working on.

I was talking to my friend Wendy at WeeBeeStampin4Fun  the other day and  I mentioned these pails and that I was going to make some for work. I only had four here and I asked her if she knew if Michaels still carried them. She said she had seen them awhile back at her Michaels (of course she lives in PA and I live in MO). 
She then  challenged me to get mine made and she would make hers and we could post them on our blogs today. 
Well, that gave me the push to actually get them done.
 I had four of the pails already but wanted a few more, 
so I ran out to Michaels to pick up a few more. I ended up making 10.

I had decided before I got started that I wanted to make pom poms for the top.
 I tried making some pom poms out of Bakers twine but they just don't look as full and fluffy as the ones made with yarn. 
So I dug into my yarn stash and found some yarn to match my paper colors and made me up a bunch of pom poms!

I think they turned out pretty cute! I love the colors and papers and all the embellishments, some which are pre-made stickers. 
I used the Stampin Up single stamp from last year I think called Happy Valentine Heart on some of them and the Happy Heart Day come from the Tags 4 You stamp set.
All the tags started with a Crumb Cake base punched with the Note Tag Punch. it was the perfect size for the mini pails.

I have a few close up pics for you:

The DSP comes from a My Minds Eye pack I picked up recently.

Don't you love the bows and pom poms?

The clothspins with hearts are some I had in my stash as well as the pretty paper roses.

So sweet and girly!
Hope you enjoy them and don't forget to hop over to Wendy's Blog 
and see how she decorated her little pails!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
