Nutty G.G.

Here's a little gift I made for my grandmother (G.G.) She just loves Pastachios, but she never gets them for herself because she feels they are too expensive.

So When I thought of PTI's "Nuts for You" stamp from their Punny Valentine set, paired with their heart tin. I couldn't resist filling it with them for her.

I used K&Co Smitten paper to cover my tin.
(The pictures do not do this paper justice. The tiny hearts are metalic pink, and the background is a yummy shade of chocolate brown. It's just beautiful paper in real life.)
I wrapped the edge of the lid with PTI's new Sweet Blush satin ribbon. (I used Satin because it had the shiny quality that went well with the metalic hearts.)

I stamped my squirrel in Cocoa DewDrop calk ink, and the heart in SU Pink craft ink. I cut him out and used Diamnetional dots to help him stand.
My sentiment was also stamped with the SU pink craft ink onto pale pink cardstock and layered onto SU pink Cardstock.
I think this is such a cute idea. I can hardley wait for her to get it!
