Last Minute Stocking Stuffers

I have been limited with my shopping radius lately – so the Dollar Tree has been a favorite spot to stop and I’ve found sound fun items such as the lemon candy canes and these mints.

The tin is Cherry Cobbler so it was perfect to make these little treats that were inspired by the chap stick holders I shared with you HERE.

Here’s what I came up with

I simply cut the Be Merry Designer Series Paper 3″ x 7″ added a bit of Fast Fuse to each end and wrapped it around the tin. I stamped the sentiment in Garden Green Classic Ink and cut it out using the Stitched Oval Framelits Die. Then I layered the sentiment using a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals onto a Cherry Cobbler Scallop Circle and adhered it to the center of the wrap. Finally I grabbed my Garden Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon, wrapped it around the tin and tied a bow. I just LOVE the way this ribbon ties!

Voila! finished in under 5 minutes too!!!

While I used these little treats the tin is about the same as an Altoids tin – I just loved the color of the tin. LOL!
