"Message in a Tin" - A "Keeper(TM)" for Valentines Day!

We just added a new Keeper(TM) to our Website called - "Message in a Tin." In the package, you get one of our large rectangular, hinged tins as well as a sheet of 24 white, adhesive backed tags to add to the tin or to the chocolates inside. Stamp on them with one your Raisin Boat sets and get creative!

Our newest Keeper(TM) includes a hinged window tin
 and 24 self-adhesive labels.

What is a Keeper(TM)?
A Keeper(TM) is a creative package of consumable items that you can receive in place of a stamp rental. Non-members and renters can also purchase additional Keepers. All of our Raisin Boat Keeper(TM) products include free shipping, too.

Need a quick gift idea for Valentine's Day or a birthday? Take a look at how this package can come to life with a little imagination and creativity!

In the the first sample, we used Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and stamped the adhesive labels using our flower image from the set, "Alpha Bold". We colored them in using Copics and adhered them to our BoatHouse Collection(TM) cardstock in Black Granite and Sun Porch. The band is a simple strip of black cardstock. For the tag, I cut a rectangular shaped piece and trimmed two corners to make a tag shape.   This project takes less than 10 minutes to make and it is fun to give and receive!

Use the adhesive labels as designs on a simple band and coordinating tag made out of
cardstock. Add a message to the tag for a quick gift.
The flower image is from Raisin Boat alphabet set, "Alpha Bold."
Be creative with the labels. I like to use the labels on the bottoms of the kisses for a little "surprise" message inside. Our labels fit perfectly on the bottom of the Hershey Kiss chocolate candies. Our sets, "Heart Attack" and "Playing Cupid" have some small designs that fit nicely on a label. Take a look...

Use the adhesive labels on the bottom of candies for a fun way to
add an element of surprise and a message inside!
We used Raisin Boat "Heart Attack" to create these custom-made goodies!

Now for the outside of our Valentine's themed tins, use our latest Valentine's set, "Sealed With a Kiss" to make fun tags to dress them up.

"Sealed With a Kiss" includes a small kiss to use on a tag. I colored this one using Copics Cool Grey shades C1 and C3 for a realistic look. Add our Red Gingham ribbon to attach the tag to the tin.
Use our latest set, "Sealed with a Kiss" to make this fun tag.
Inside the tin is 20+ kisses to share! Our red gingham
 ribbon is a nice staple ribbon for year-round projects.
"Sealed With a Kiss" also has a large kiss that can be used as a focal point. Stamp a word on the tag for personalization. In the next tin sample, I used the large kiss as the focal and the small kiss to make a coordinating background. BoatHouse Collection(TM) cardstock in Silver Shimmer, Red Delicious and Black Granite were used to make this decorated tin. The wide Polka Dot ribbon is reversible to black with white dots.
"Sealed with a Kiss" also has a large kiss in the set. Use it with our
new Silver Shimmer cardstock for an authentic looking chocolate kiss.
Use the small kiss to make fun background patterns, too!

Here's another Valentine idea using a paper doily and cardstock. Don't forget the kisses inside!
Use our Polka Dot Reversible ribbons for quick bands. Then top with
a fun tag. A paper doily is always a pretty addition to a tag, too!

Don't want to send kisses? Send some golden nuggets instead! The Hershey Nugget candy bars fit perfectly in our hinged tin, too. We used "Love Letters" to stamp the band and "Sweet Treats" for the labels.
Use "Love Letters" to create a custom band around a tin of chocolates.
Add ribbons to garnish!

Create custom labels for the chocolates using cardstock.
Stamp a word or design on the labels and attach the labels to the bands.
Add a custom cover to the chocolates or use our circular adhesive labels for a quick design change. The labels work great because they can bend with the bands to fit nicely. Add a word like "sweet." "thanks" or "hi" or stamp an image. Either way, this project looks yummy! ~ Smiles, Bobbi
