Sweet Tart Tins!

Some inspiration for you!  Here are two ideas from our design team for using our new Tart Tins:

Ranjini made this sweet home decor item made by painting and glittering the Tart Tins, inserting chipboard buttons, and connecting the tins together with  rings.  A dangle is made with pretty little odds and ends and hangs off the bottom.

Kerry Lynn made these adorable pin cushions:

KL's process: to start i cut a round piece of the quilt and then stuffed it into a circle over a wadded up piece of old batting. i stitched along the edges, which are hidden underneath {inside the tart tin} to form a nice tight ball. then i used hot glue to attach the quilt ball into the tart tins. 

after putting it all together i hand-stitched along the quilt seams to add some dimension and then added a little hand-stitched heart to one as well. the pins are a mix of handmade, the paper hearts and flag pins as well as some jbs garnet rhinestone stick pins.

Stay tuned for more sweet ideas using our Tart Tins!
