Painted Heart Tin

Next month I'll be co-hosting a bridal shower for my youngest sister (you know her as THE PAPER SQUIRREL) so I've been creating handcrafted prizes.  One of the items I painted is this little heart tin.  It started out as a thrift store find (15 cents!).
But after priming and painting using an adaption of a pattern by Shara Reiner (You can find it in The Decorative Painter #1 2008),
 I turned it into a sweet little sewing kit!
I paint a lot of Shara's patterns...they are cute, funky and easy to paint.

Super cute! I'm sure the guests will be fighting over all the wonderful handmade prizes my talented sisters and mom are making!!
