Egg-stra Special Tin!

With Easter fast approaching, my LSS decided to do a make and take this weekend and this is the project we are going to do!!!


Altoid tins have been all the rage for a while now and, well, I hate to admit it, I've never done one before! These little stamps are from Inkadinkado! That little chick is so stinkin' cute! I used my Marvy Mega oval and scallop punch for the punched pieced and watercolored the chick with watercolor pencils (after stamping in permanent black ink). To attach my ribbon, I used the small slot punch from Stampin' Up to make the hole to run my ribbon through.


On the inside......


I stamped a whole bunch of eggs also from Inkadinkado all over a page of sticker paper. I colored them with markers and then punched then out using a 1" circle punch so they would fit over top my Reeses mini peanut butter cups. The Happy Easter was stamped using black ink onto the oval for the inside of the tin. It might look a bit sparkly because I went over it with my clear Copic Spica pen. I think that's it! The paper is Lasting Impressions! Should be fun to make these little tins this weekend! Stop by Stampressions if you're in the Billings-area Saturday morning!!


Hope you're having a fab week!

These are wonderful!!! I ordered some of these tins and can't wait until they get here. We have some in our store but they aren't as deep and the top slides off.. Not as nice as these..
Have fun at your make and take! Wish I could come and help!!

That is adorable! I definitely need to look around and see if I can find some tins. And I love the little patties inside with the circles on them. A nice way to keep candy together and protect it from pets. I had a dog snatch my Easter candy one year when I was a kid and MAN was I disappointed! No dog is going to steal it out of the tin!
