Yummy Winter Wishes

I loved the tins that Paper Trey debuted last month and just had to order my share. We actually made this at host club last night. I can imagine using them to package homemade fudge and caramels at Christmas time. More yummers!!

Wild Wasabi is not my favorite color, I am trying to use it more so maybe I will like it more. I like it here paired with soft sky, it looks fresh with the silver tin. I wheeled half of my labels with the snowflake wheel/soft sky and the other half I carefully stamped with the winter wishes stamp from Labelicious using wild wasabi. The fit is so close it almost demands a Stamp a ma Jig but I managed to do without. For the belt I got out my much neglected crimper. I cut a strip of wild wasabi 1 1/2" by 11", crimped it and attached it with sticky strip. It is not attached to the tin so it can be easily removed without breaking the belt. I punched out the label with the designer label punch and adhered a small half pearl from the Pretties kit to the center. A small glue dot fits perfectly behind the half pearl! I also used the scallop punch with soft sky and white grosgrain ribbon.

I can see teacher and co-worker gifts in my future!

Blessings on your day, thanks for visiting my little corner of cyberworld.

I love love love this! I seriously was just thinking of something to make as a little thank you for people attending my 2nd wedding reception this weekend, and I was thinking of labeling chocolate. No kidding! And then you posted this, making me think that I've got a ton of work to do by Saturday!!
