Altered Xmas Tins

These are some Xmas tins that I altered and filled with chocolates for my daughters teachers. I really couldn't ask for better teachers for my girls, they can't wait to get to school to see their teachers and when they come home, they always have such kind things to say about them, with wonderful stories from that day. You can tell they truly care for them, it's such a comfort to know that they're having a good day and learning from such a wonderful group of people.

These are metal tins, approximately 4 1/2" tall by 3" wide with see-thru glass inserts in the lids. The lids that I altered follow the tins below, however I made two with the olive cardstock and 2 with the blue stock, which is why there are only 3 pictured and there are 5 tins.

Embellishments: Olive Green grosgrain ribbon, Blue and Burgundy satin ribbon
Stamps: Holiday Medallion stamp (See d's)

Patterned Paper: 2006 Holiday double-sided Designer Series Paper (SU), Snowflake Textured Paper (Imagine That - Jacqueline Addison)
Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
