Christmas Candy Tin

This is the 11th project from the 12 Days of Christmas swap!

Stamps: Beautiful Season
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Early Espresso
DSP: Letters to Santa
Ink: Black Stazon
Markers: Lucky Limeade, Always Artichoke, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Mistletoe Ribbon Originals (retired), Sticky Strip, Candy Tin (retired), Designer Label Punch, Curly Label Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Dazzling Detials.

Stampin' Up used to sell these candy tins, they are about the same size as an Altoids tin. I had ordered some of these off the clearance rack a while ago just in case I needed a pretty gift package. Well now was certainly the time! I used Sticky Strip to adhere the ribbon around the tin and then I tied the ribbon into a bow.

The DSP was cut at 1-7/8" x 3-1/4". The Old Olive card stock was cut at 2" x 3-3/8". The Very Vanilla card stock was cut at 2-1/8" x 3-1/2". All of the pieces were punched on the coners with the Ticket Corner punch and then adhered together. The panel was adhered to the top of the tin with Sticky Strip.

The greeting from Beautiful Season was stamped in Black Stazon ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock. The image was colored in with the markers and then was punched out with the Curly Label punch. Another curly label was punched from Old Olive card stock. Then the Decorative Label punch was used with Early Espresso card stock. Both the Old Olive and Early Espresso labels were cut in half width-wise and were adhered behind the greeting label. Dazzling Details was added to the edges of the Early Espresso label and onto the holly berries in the greeting label. This was adhered to the top of the tin with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Inside the tin were five Hershey's Nuggets. You never know what kinds of things can be turned into great gift packages!
