Easter Tins

 Today I was at Target and came across these tins on clearance for $9.99 for 30 of them.  Colin has 25 kids in his class so this will be a perfect treat for their Easter party next week.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to make this time and as soon as I saw the tins I had a picture in mind.  I made 6 in about 10 minutes, so they are going to be super quick and easy, which is perfect for a preschool project. 

I stamped the image from So Many Scallops on Wild Wasabi card stock in the same color ink.  I then punched it out with my scallop punch.  The chick was stamped in Basic Gray on Whisper White and I am simply coloring them in with Stampin’ Write markers.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose.  I then punched the chick out with the 1 3/8″ circle punch.  I stamped on the flowers after I punched the chick out and the stamp fits perfectly with no masking!  I started to tie on Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon until I visualized all of my gorgeous ribbon in the trash can, so I decided less was more when giving gifts to 4 and 5 year olds.  The tins are filled with M&M’s. 

Today I have a class and then next week I can relax and get stuff done.  Have a great Sunday!

  1. I LOVE these! I weep everytime I see you Americans raving about the Target Dollar Spot! I’m in Canada and, to my knowledge, we don’t have a Target. Not near me anyway! I’m making 16 matchbook candy holders that I saw on Andrea Walfords page. They’re nice but no way could I make 6 in 10 minutes!!! I love your stuff and will definetly add you to my list of stampers-to-stalk-today! LOL!

  5. Ooooh, these are precious! What a great idea! I admire you making these by hand for the children! I did that last year for my students, but this year I keep finding myself just buying the printed cello bags and filling them with goodies. Thank goodness you decided against the ribbon on these, I started to panic too, thinking about it ending up in the trash!
