Tins of Chocolate

I am writing this post on Saturday, as I hope to be going somewhere especially exciting tomorrow morning (Sunday). If I do end up getting' there', I will be sure to let you know with my next post. Right now the plan is for me to go, but I can hardly believe my luck and will be holding my breath until I am dropped off at the front doors tomorrow morning.  In fact, I hope I can sleep tonight I'm so excited about this adventure. Fingers crossed! 

Meanwhile, for today's share - I made these tins up for our Christmas Craft Sale back in November. They didn't sell all that well, but I figured it was because we didn't have enough people come on the Saturday (our fault, for choosing a long weekend for the sale). A friend was going into a craft sale in her neighborhood the following weekend and offered to take them to her sale. Of course I said yes, and - they all sold there!

Each tin had sparkly designer paper on the front, and die cut layers.  They were tied up with pretty seasonal ribbon and a bow, and a die cut, stamped gift tag was added.  The stamp on the tag front is by Stampin' Up, and All Night Media makes the 'to & from' words.

Here is a peek at the inside, which was also lined with coordinating sparkly patterned paper - and there were a dozen paper wrapped mini chocolate bars inside. The bars are similar to Hershey Nuggets.

Here they are all lined up, ready for the sale:

The metal tins are by Stampin' Up.

Thanks for stopping by today.
