Decorated tins

At a recent craft fair, I was commissioned by a local high school PTO to make tins in their school colors for Christmas gifts for the high school teachers.  Their school mascot/name is the "Shamrocks".  I made 206 of these nugget tins, but filled them with Waggoners Buckeye Candies (an Ohio treat!)  While they took much longer to make than I anticipated, I really liked how they turned out and she was thrilled with them when she picked them up. 

Not a lot of Stampin' Up! products were used.  I couldn't match up the green with any of our colors.  I did use Whisper White and Basic Black, along with the Scallop Circle Punch and Modern Label Punch.  Sweetest Holiday Wishes was computer generated.  I used a 2" circle punch behind the scallop.  The shamrock is a Quickutz die that I ran thru the Big Shot.  The dotted designer paper is made by Jilli Bean.  I placed a green button on each of the shamrocks.

Here is one box of 4 that were full of finished tins!  I hope the teachers like them!

Good for you!  I am the President of the PTO at my son's school and I did a little treat for each of the 100 staff members at school for Halloween–couldn't imagine doing 200 😉  These are adorable and I'm sure they loved them.  TFS!
