My Decorated Candy Tins

In my previous post, I shared a perfect idea for a delightful but inexpensive Christmas gift for teachers or a stocking stuffer.  Tragically, I was unable to join the crafting fun that day...  But my dear friend who shared this idea with me hosted another gift making day, so I had the opportunity to make my own Decorated Candy Tins!  I also wanted to make sure I linked back to the original blog post where this idea was featured:  My Paper Creations by Niki Estes. (I'm sorry, Niki, for not giving you credit previously - I didn't know that this idea was from your site but corrected it when I found out the source.)   
To review, here are the supplies you'll need to make these tins:
  • Rectangle Clear Top Tins (.875"H x 5.5"W x 3.7")
  • Hershey's Nuggets (one bag fills three tins)
  • Decorative Paper (we used 12x12 scrapbook paper)
  • Ribbon, Stamps, Cut Outs, Shape Punches, etc.
  • Adhesive
Instructions:
1. To wrap the tin, you'll need to cut the strips of paper 4x12.
2. To wrap the nuggets, you'll need to cut the strips of paper 1x3
3. After you wrap the candy and the tin, then embellish the outside with ribbon, stamps, cut outs, shape punches, etc. We embossed our stamped labels, making them sparkly.



Here are the tins I made for my kids' teachers (shh, don't tell them!)

Your project turned out so pretty! I bought some candy tins this weekend but I'm thinking of making them into mini, mini albums for my kids! I would love to get one of your tins, perhaps I need to rethink my project!
