Tin o’ Chocolates

I had some left over scraps of paper, so I thought I’d use them to decorate this rectangular tin I bought, as an impulse buy, while in the queue at Michaels ($1.50).

They would be great for small thank you cards, but I’m going with my standby of Chocolates. :)

So what do you need:

I don’t measure things. Rulers & I … um ya, I don’t measure things, I eyeball. So here’s the eyeballing:

The tag, I used with my old Sizzix Machine & this tag maker, good for cutting paper.

Then I used my leftover scraps & swirled some more So Swirly (S.U. Wheel), and sponged a bit too. I sealed it with Sticky Tape, ’cause man, that tape is strong. The tape was put on in a square “U” shape under the ruby red strip, to act as a pocket.

Tag in …

Tag out:

Wrapped chocolates inside, unfortunately it wouldn’t fit 9 chocolates, just 6:

This went to a buddy of mine who loves chocolate, I mean, really LOVES chocolate. LOL
