A Little Gift For Someone You Care For

 Every year I have a heard time coming up with a little special something to make for all the people that I care for but don't really exchange with.... You know the list; teachers, co-workers, Sunday School leaders, neighbors just to name a few. You can't spend a lot of money but you want to make sure these people know you care and are thinking of them for Christmas. This year I purchased these great little tins at the Paper Mart and put together this great little gift.



Now wasn't that easy. And there is an unlimited number to papers and designs you could use as sell as goodies to place in the inside of each little tin. All you need to do is get some candy and paper a little adhesive and you are good to go.

Here is the tin that I had a hard time with there was just so much glitter on the paper that the little papers did not want to stick to the candy wrappers.... I used regular tape and that seemed to hold.
Here is the patterned paper with the Ho Ho Ho stamp, it turned out so cute. I jsut love the papers don't you?


The red looked so dramatic and looked very cute with the glittery sleighs on the paper, and don't you love the contrast with the white snowflake heat embossed on that tag?
This is a photo is of the three colors that I made. They all looked so nice. Now all I have to do is wrap them.
Thanks for joining us today, I hope you enjoyed my little gift idea. Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. You comments inspire me to continue sharing with you.

I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. I could not contact you using your contact info.
What item# are the tin boxes? Do they have a hinged lid? Would like to order some.
Also, I have a hard time viewing some of your older gypsy files.
What program did you use?
Have a blessed day and thanks for your help.

Mary I used the medium hinged window box #6517130P.
You can't view the files you have to download them onto your computer and then upload them to your Gypsy. Hope that helps.
Have a blessed day.
