CHOCOLATE TINS - FOR TEACHERS

Hi all!! Well, another busy week ahead, as I am sure it is for most of us!! I have soooo much to do to get ready for Christmas! My son comes home a week from today - WHOOHOOO!!! I cannot wait to see him, the last time I did was for the 4th of July!!! I cannot wait to spoil my baby!! Can I still call him that since he is almost 20??!! Heck, I am going to, LOL! So, I am going to share the gifts I made for the teachers - there is chocolate involved so I figured I am good, right? *wink* I made these cute little tins, and wrapped the chocolates to match the dp I used on the outside. I know a lot of people make these, and now I see why, they are easy and FUN! I used rub-ons for the tags, love them!!! And, of course SU! yummy winter dp, who can resist that?! The chocolates are assorted chocolate treasures made my Hershey and should be illegal!! So, I made three of these - and then I will put together some cute little gift bags for them to go in - and maybe a matching card too! Here are the other two tins, they are all different, but all use the rub-ons and yummy dp!! I will leave you the recipe and then I am off to get my hair done - whoohoo!! I need a haircut sooooo bad!!! Tony asked me to please not get it "butched" - I think he is remembering how short my hair was when I went to Iraq - lol!!! Have a wonderful day all!!!
Tin Recipe:
Paper - Baha Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red Card Stock, Ski Slope, Holiday Treasures Designer Series Paper
Inks - None!
Stamps - None!
Accessories - Circle Scallop Punch, 1 3/8 inch Circle Punch, Curly Label Punch, Baha Breeze and Kiwi Kiss Striped Ribbon, Alpine Ribbon, Gold Elastic Cord, Season of Cheer Rub-ons
