And here is my project to share with you. Yep, I know Diana Fisher and I had the same idea...what can I tell you but great minds think alike! I love the colors she chose for her milk bottle and card!
I fell in love with these little milk bottles in the Target Dollar Spot and instantly knew that I wanted to add some of Samantha Walker's heart files to them.  They did have some designs already on them, but with a little vinegar and warm water, the designs washed right off.  I cut two hearts of each design.  That way I have an extra already cut, if I goof one up.  The hearts are 2 1/4 inches tall by 2 1/2 inches wide!  Even with all the detail in the hearts, they cut with ease!  After I applied the vinyl, I cut some pinwheels and flowers, in all different sizes.  I used 3 different color of American Crafts Glitter Paper.  I layered pinwheels and flowers then added them to some fun straws that I had.  A little twine, a few buttons and they were done.  They are the perfect addition to my Valentine mantel!  
Here are a couple screen shots of the hearts and the various shapes of the flowers and pinwheels that I used. 


Clicking on each photo below will take you right to the file on the Silhouette Store!

How do you attach the pinwheels and flowers together? Did you use a brad or something else? I'm a newbie at that sort of thing :)
