Christmas Tins

Christmas is coming soon, and I have been trying to come up with a fun gift that the kids can give to their teachers.  I found these rather plain tins, that I decided to make them into Christmas tin!

Here is the tin before...

I spray painted some of the lids white and some red.

Cut some fun scrapbook paper to fin the top.

Next, I mod podged the scrapbook paper to the tin lids.

Here is the lid:

Next, I gathered some fun supplies to make the tags.

I put a fun sticker on a chalkboard tag...

and added some writing with a chalkboard marker.

Making marzipan (almond paste candy) is a fun family tradition that came from my husbands side. The kids have lots of fun making the fruits.

We are only about half way done making fruit, and we already have a pan and a half!

We put the marzipan fruits in candy wrappers and in the tins & there are ready to go!

Do you have any fun family treat traditions??

Thanks so much for stopping by!
