*Lids from large and medium cans (use can opener that does not leave sharp edges)
*One sheet of cardstock sprayed with Lindy's Starburst Stain In Delphinium Turquoise
*VIC Images
*Handcrafted polymer heart charms
*Heart bling
*Ribbon flowers
*Black seam binding
*Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Broken China
*Glossy Accents
*Pop dots
*Tacky glue


Cut cardstock circles for each side of the two can lids. Distress the edges and use Broken China Distress Ink on the edges. Use ModPodge to adhere the circle to the sides of the lids. Attach trim with glossy accents. Fussy cut the VIC Images. In this case, I placed the cherubs from one image and attached them to the medium circle, and the lady to the larger circle using pop dots for dimension. I added the sentiment onto her dress skirt. Holes were punched at the top
and bottom of the lid and attached using the seam binding. Decorated with heart bling and polymer charms and flowers.

On the second side I included a rub on sentiment on the medium lid and heart bling. On the larger lid I cut the heart part of a VIC image and attached to the circle. I also fussy cut a second copy of the flower, dress and hat, and added it using pop dots.
